Re: After market hatch question

Saw this and thought I would chime in because I had the same Question. I reached out to grandmighty on IG who has a YouTube Channel Corner Balanced because I saw him install one. He said that the CF hatch from Seibon did NOT come with the wiper hole or the Lock hole, but it does have the holes under...

Re: New Annex Coilovers or...Old faithful TRD Blues etc..

Rates are good, especially for a stripped hatch that is still street driven. I like how TRD blues felt but the car I drove was also on TRD bushings. Controlled, smooth but still firm enough. HTS are known to be 'harsh' on the street IIRC. Koni's are good and way more comfortable than most if you pl...

Re: New Annex Coilovers or...Old faithful TRD Blues etc..

Aim to keep the front LCA's at the factory angles, either by using roll centre adjusters if you want to lower the car or by keeping the ride height close to stock. Use springs to absorb the bumps, dampers to control the springs and anti-roll (sway) bars to tune the handling. I would consider adjust...

I guess it comes down to what you want from it. Do you want an improvement over stock handling ? Are you more interested in how it looks and how low you can get it with coilovers ?

Hey everybody,

Looking for the Drain plug sizes for the factory T50 transmission and a Zenki GTS rear end. Wondering if either is:
M18 x 1.5 x 12
Or M24 x 1.5 x 12

I know the engine is M12 x 1.25 x 12

Car: 4age 16V with T50 transmission and Factory Zenki GTS rear end

Thanks everyone!

You could try CarPro Iron X Iron remover. I detailed a lot of new cars when I was younger and many of them that come off train, will have tiny rust specks in the paint. This stuff dissolves them safely. Should work on the windshield too. Good Luck!
