why in the hell would you run a 10.5 up front on a drift car? gonna rub fucking everything. you’d be totally fine running a 9.5 in the rear too. not like you’re making more power than a sticky 225 could handle. don’t cut up perfect quarters just cuz you bought the wrong sized wheels. you could probably sell those and buy some that actually fit and make a profit.

Prediction: you're not gonna run the 10.5j up front. The steering will feel so heavy and shitty.

Plus you're gonna need some ugly rocket bunny fenders to fit them with those spacers.

Maybe, I'll stick to it for now.

I'll pass on rocket bunny I'll keep the steering feedback in mind. I wouldn't mind running 17's up front.

Needed the valve cover breather for a catch can. I lost mine. Zach Farrar had a spare laying around.

I'd be buying more car parts for the hatch, but I'm currently saving money to get into a new house (renting). That's putting me behind, but in the long run it should work out. I'm limited on space for storage, even with a storage unit... It would be better to get rid of my storage unit and have a bigger garage.

Got a care package from Powered By Max! Ordered Comp coils, spacers, and lug nuts. When I have time this weekend I'll throw the coils on...

I talked with Martin from RS Enthalpy and he said he could tune my NismotronicSA. I've been waiting for a local tuner to get back to me since Thanksgiving but at this point I give up. I'll just wait for Martin to fly in March!

This morning I had to swing by Harbor Freight to buy a 2 ton low pro jack to replace my dead floor jack. It made it a lot easier to lift my chassis.

I went through and adjusted the coilovers to an ideal height. My driveway is BAD for low car. I was tempted to go more, but my front lip is already scraping like crazy.

I have my front coilovers 8 clicks from soft, and rears 3 clicks from soft. I decided to go with what PBM offers, 10k / 8k springs. While I was setting these up, I realized that this is probably the heights I can set the rears... So drop knuckles will be in the near future

Next up... Drift spares, RS Enthalpy tune, fiberglass, more tires.IMG_20180127_122501.jpgIMG_20180127_122508.jpgIMG_-ewaxpk.jpgIMG_20180127_171435.jpg

More photos, it's a couple inches lower than before. Not even rubbing at this height. If you're curious, the front tires are 205/40/17.Attachment 102521IMG_20180127_141343.jpgIMG_20180127_151306.jpg

+1 more for not cutting up OEM quarters and OEM fenders for fiberglass.

Vlog with the PBM Competition Coilover install, a little longer than I wanted it to be.

I haven't had time to edit this, and I'm also lacking on funds / time to chip away at the hatch this next couple of months... Unexpected change in living situation... Have to throw down and rent a new house... This time with a 2 car garage that I have 100% access too. The new landlord also offered to wire in 220v into the garage when I asked about it! I'm moving in March 1st... I should have money set aside for a tune from Martin.
