I can check it out if you got some time tomorrow, may be your springs since we rotated your camber plate, may need adjusted and seated again.

Does is handle better? We could get your plates rotated around for max camber/caster to if you'd like.
makes sense. that bolt was on there good. I figure after 90k and something is moved it'll sound weird after.
Don't worry about he just moved back my time.
Yeah handles a lot better, and doesn't pull as much. Tomorrow I won't I'm going to be recording pretty much all day.
How would you go about reversing them? I could do that after I go try and get an alignment with somebody who knows what they're doing.

The noise could be a number of things, will take some hands on investigation to solve I think.

Will need to figure out if they can be reversed (something we didn't get to). If they can, then more toward firewall will get you needed caster, toward the engine will get you camber. Where you are at now for caster is a big improvement, but camber is lacking a bit for auto-x setup. Basically, turn the plates until they adjustment both toward the firewall and toward the engine. Give me a call if questions.

Yeah, after seeing your numbers, I would avoid Les Swab unless it's for a beater

Yeah if you want to we can try and see what we can get max camber in the front and if they'll rotate more, on a day with a little bit more time. Yeah I'm cutting my losses with les schwab haha. Lesson learned.

From the IMS Spring drive. 54 Cars and 1 Motorcycle. We also got the go ahead from the Idaho State Police to have a free-for-all up and down horseshoe bend hill. It was so much fun.

One of the guys at work went on that IMS drive and told me about that Horseshore Bend Hill deal. Imagine if someone would've wrecked, that would've been a fiasco of near epic proportions.

Im running my RWD sti swapped wrx at the rally-x on the 1st, and I only have worn yokohama avid v4 tires.

Would anyone be able to loan me their winter/off road setup (5x100) for the May 1st rally-x? Just thought it was worth a try. Looking forward to making an event finally.

way less hassle to just buy a new axle then mess with the boots and repacking the CV's. you can get new axles for around $50 each.

anyone live in the Eagle/McMillian area headed to the rallyx on the 1st? I sure could use a ride out there.

oh, and when dick and i get done with the course tomorrow maybe we'll take some in car footage and post it up.

the course is awesome, it's more like a stage then a rallycross. almost 1mile long as well.

I have an 02 trans with bad 2nd for sale. I don't know if it would supply all the parts you need... but I drove on it as is for about five months. Just skip 2nd

BAD NEWS. due to all the rain/hail the rallycross course is a lake. This means we will have to cancel the event on the 1st.

The next event will be in June and we hope that the sun will bake the course till then and firm up all the course building we are doing.

Sorry guys.
