    You know I want a set. I managed to miss out on the V1. This was the only stock part of my suspension this whole time. Now if only I could get an aftermarket knuckle with more wheel clearance...

    Thanks. I actually am in charge of timing and scoring/registration so I have an inside edge for event pics lol. Sucks we have had to cancel so many but it seems we will be on for our June 7th event. Fingers crossed.

    I'm going to look at making a different sized P/S pump pulley on the water pump. I noticed the pulley on the pump doesn't look like it comes off easily. There are a few ways to get it done. Thanks for the ideas. I also have a question about my next mod. I am in the process of building a 2.3 6...

    I have a spare P/S pump I can take apart and see. However I believe the reason it is in there is so the pump doesn't over pressurize and blow the seals on the rack. It might work for a stock rev limit because the pump is spinning within stock limits. I am going to try a 8k rev limit this year...

    If you haven't been to any local events, you have good regions in Alabama, I highly suggest it before going to a National level event. It can get hectic because of the scale.

    I was thinking of staying away from changing the crank pulley size. I was thinking of it as I need my waterpump to spin quickly because Running the car hard at slow speeds heats it up quickly. I'll look at the slower water pump. It just seems weird to me. Changing that spring is also an...

    I did think about that last season. The problem is the P/S high preasure line goes directly over the pulley. It has maybe a few mm of clearance amd wouldn't gain much from making it that small amount bigger. I would have to look into different fittings for power steering lines. Maybe a 90 out...

    I think what started it was the July double header in Bristol, TN. The course was long and it was hot. I was being a real dick on the throttle the second event because I was pissed at how things were going. I'm sure that didn't help. The power steering is cutting out at high rpms, the normal...

    The trip to Nebraska was uneventful. The rental truck, a Ram 2500HD diesel, had no problems. Out of the 4 days of racing I raced on the last 2 days. Having the first 2 days to soak everything in and get a feel for how everything worked was great. The paddock had probably 700-1000 cars in it. A...

    Thats me. I did wind up spinning a bearing on my 3rd run the first day. Thats why the run is so bad, I could hear it as I was going around and it messed me up haha. Crappy power steering cutout also held me back. I will give an update in a few days. I have a travel home day tomorrow.

    98 GSX Time Trial build

    The accusump is a piston with air on one side and the oil in the other. When the oil pressure builds it pushes oil to areas with less than pump pressure(the accusump). As the high pressure oil pushes the piston over it compresses the air side. This raises the air pressure(less volume, same...

    Unless you have some type of solenoid valve on it, it won't hold pressure. Its supposed to have a valve so high pressure oil can come in and then only exit when the pressure switch for the solenoid goes below its value (supplying power and opening the solenoid). With the way you have it if the...

    You could always try Nord-Lock washers as well. I don't have issues with things backing themselves out but if/when I do I will be buying the appropriate Nord-Lock washer. The video is cool because it shows how the different fasteners react to vibration

    Last Sunday, 5/5, I went to a local regions event. It was a last minute thing that I decided to go. I didn't want to drive the car there and back (6 hour round trip) but renting a truck wasn't worth the cost. So, I packed the car up and headed down to Bowling Green, KY. The drive down was long...

    2G Did Feal change their standard springs?

    Feal Coilovers are worth it. I had their 441 when it was 10k front and 6k rear two years ago I think. I actually ordered with a stiffer 13k up front so it was 100 bucks extra I believe. The best part about them I think is customer service. I switched to their 442s this off season and they...

    I wonder if it would be as simple as wiring a potentiometer inline with the power. I am not the best with electronics but if the voltage is what drives how hard the EPS works it might work, plus it would be adjustable. Like in the pic below

    Just to make sure I have read this right, the Electronic option would just assist the power steering so you still have the feel? Or is it more like a full electronic steering without the feel?

    Do you have no lift to shift? It will make for faster shifts and its a little nicer to the transmission for the high rpm shifts if I remember correctly.

    Im not sure if its pressure related. I am on stock valve springs so I'm sure that doesn't help. I do have the Kiggly regulator though.
