Took some video using the Harness Bar Mount. Came out pretty good and didn't fall over this time.


Also encountered some brake fade around 3:10 which freaked me out a bit.

Yeah, for the most part. Hit 4th before fading the brakes. Just a casual drive. I needed some curves to make sure the camera wouldn't flop over.

@BSP671, reide181

Do you both still have your front fender liners in? Mine are still in but after rolling and pulling the front fenders the liner doesn't stay in place any more and just kind of sags onto the top of the tire.

Can you link me to the DIY fender rolling thread that you used?

Thanks We're a local group out of Westchester County and we have roughly 200+ members.

As for my trailer hitch, I have a Drawtite Class 1 hitch receiver for the hatchback. I love it.

I would recommend at least upgrading your brake fluid. Get some new pads while your at it

Go over to the Ralliteks site and see if they have any plates left. They are liquidating stock (closing it looks like). You might be able to get a good deal.

Interesting. They have 4EAT transmission mount inserts for $10 too. I wonder if it is worth it

Personally I wouldn't even bother. Besides having my AP tunes from them I wouldn't buy anything from them. Not to bad mouth them but they come off "cheap".

I actually just installed mine and I noticed a difference. Yeah it's more cabin noise and feel but not a ton at all. I say go for it. For $10 what do you have to lose? I also witnessed a ton more support! My car has 21,000 and the support was already dropping pretty bad. I'm sure the new bushing will help a ton!

WTF? The end links and sway bars I bought from them are all excellent quality, made in USA.. Why would you say that about them?

Bars themselves look fine. Endlinks look weak. Especially compared to other brands.

Anyone know why they are out of business?
