Damn, best of luck with the pinch bolt. That offset bushing will also push your front wheels slightly forward in the wheelwell.

Sucks on having to pull the hub. You going to just drill it out now or just swap hubs? FWIW I always anti-seize the crap out of the top of the ball joint and the pinch bolt so that I can pull it easily instead of pickle-forking the ball joint and damaging the boot. Granted, looks like yours had been fairly frozen up/crusty? Mine has been in and out plenty of times so it's easy now.

Love the build man.

Thanks Biggly

After ~ an extra 4 hours and breaking off 2 drill bits and 1 extractor........I win. There were a couple times I almost gave up.



My car was a dd until Spring 2005 so it had more than a few mid-west winters on it. I was going to deal with the ball joints sooner or later anyways.



I got a couple days off so I'm going back to my to do list. Is it afternoon yet, I need a beer.

Interesting width comparision between Kuhmo 285/30/18's and Hoosier 285/30/18's

hoosiers are on 10" wide rims, kuhmos 9.5" wide rims. Still a huge difference. Kuhmos are ~ 7/8" narrower, the unmounted hoosiers are only ~ 1/8" wider than the mounted versions. I will compare again when I eventually put some hoosiers on the 9.5" wide rims.

There was never any doubt that I'd run the Hoosiers. I just had these side by side in the garage.

I don't think it's rained the last 2 years @ DC so what are the chances of a completely dry event this year. Something, something swamp during the rainiest month of the year.

So on my little hiatus I've decide to tackle a small laundry list.

1. switch to the aluminum control arms from a TR Billy sent me DONE
2. push new bushings,TiC sent me, into the front inner attachment point of the control arms DONE
3. install the offset bushings Billy had sent me a while back. DONE
4. switch the rear springs to the 6" Billy sent me DONE
5. remove spacers from rears and check clearence DONE
6. mount hoosier wets to enkei's DONE
7. forgot I had some steering rack bushings to put in DONE
8. change all fluids DONE
9. if I have time, weld up the left rear fender well where it split during rolling. Don't roll rusty fenders. Not done
10. take the time to take pics of the process' Partially done

I think next Friday I drop the car back off to see if we can clear out the hot/idle richness dealio. It's there, I pick it up Wednesday.

I even found time to throw a coat of rustoleum on the deck of the trailer.

If we can just keep the rain away from the DC pro.....it should be a good weekend.

Well as most know the DC pro has come and gone. I had written a long detailed list on my experience there but think I'll summarize.

First DC's always a great event (I don't like the city) It's great to see the extended auto-x family and it's weird how you feel adopted by other region members. I feel at home with the majority of the philly crew and enjoy just hanging out and laughing.

After first runs Saturday I was in 7th place and there were some in grid who were so proud of being faster than an awd car in the rain. It's too bad that trophies aren't awarded for Sat. morning runs........ Oh well they enjoyed it for at least a little while. I guess they never got the memo that saturday morning runs didn't matter and I didn't care.

After Saturday afternoon I had a 1.4 second lead over 2nd, after Sunday it was wittled down to 1.1 seconds. I have a feeling it would've been closer with a certain white T/A. They were definetly HP courses.

Made it deep into the challenge where I was out driven for 2nd/1st and drove myself out of 3rd for 4th.

Notes on the car....the camaro's were next to me at the turn in at the end of the start straight. Any launch advantage I had was quickly taken back going up the hill by their HP.

I had adjusted the LC as the start rubbered in a couple times, and should've during the challenges, but the car really felt anemic going up the hill. I need to find some HP

Also I started getting some clunking from the right front at the end of Saturday into Sunday. Monday I pulled all 4 tires and inspected. It appears the offset bushings have twisted in their mounts. Not rotated, twisted/distorted. I guess I'll have to look at replacing or dealing. Active alignment.......

So on deck is switching to the plastic manifold from an 08 to see if we can reduce intake temps and of course they're much lighter. I also may move to c16 to see if any HP gains are possible.

I had originally bought the plastic manifold as I was going to run a vf52 from an 09............

Nice runs Greg! It was great to see the car running in person, it's a beast, and you drive it fantastically. I couldn't believe how much and how often I saw that rear end step out, just to be brought back in line like it was nothing.

Also great to talk to you as well and appreciate your feedback and insight.

Thanks Josh, It's appreciated.

I had written a blow by blow of the event kinda in the vein of yours and BD's thread......but just couldn't post it.

Anytime on the advice, too bad you're not coming to Toledo.

^^^Echoed. Not only is this car being built the right way, it's being driven for all it's worth. If there's ever an opportunity for me to build something for ESP....this is the path I will take. Thanks again for sharing the nuts and bolts of the process Greg.

Wish I could make Toledo, but at this point that could push me into those divorce statistics.
