    Re: Tubular Control Arms install

    Needed to update this.

    I measured the wheel base and the left was too far forward by about 1/8". So, I ended up just cutting the bushings and rearranging the pieces to space the control arm back....

    Suspension Re: WTB: Slowe K-frame

    I tend to agree that a well set-up suspension on these cars doesn't necessarily need a front sway bar. I find the car rides better and handles just as well, but doesn't get upset when hitting bumps....

    Re: Tubular Control Arms install

    You are correct. I found the original group buy thread and the answer was there. I felt kinda dumb after that. :(



    This verifies all of the things I've pretty much thought was correct for a...

    Well...I'm not good personal friends with Brian, and I understand his reasons for not making more (though I am bummed about it), so if someone that knows him well knows what kind of beer he likes,...

    Suspension WTB: Slowe K-frame

    If you have one of Brian's tubular K-frames and you aren't going to use it, don't need it anymore, or simply need $$$$, I am in the market. Yes, I know shipping sucks, so yes, I will pay shipping.

    Re: Chromoly Lower Control Arms for Sale

    5 years later I'm FINALLY installing these! I forgot they were based on the '91-up cast control arms. I ran into a tire interference problem on the left front hitting the front of the wheel well on...

    Tubular Control Arms install

    OK, so some time ago there was a group buy for tubular, chromoly control arms. I was fortunate enough to be able to get in on that and got a set. I *FINALLY* got around to installing them on a car...

    Re: Official BC Coilover Kit Development Interest.

    So, even though the strut hats will bolt in regardless of orientation, there *is* a "correct" orientation for them. Try dropping the strut out of the tower a bit and spin the hat around until the...
  10. Re: An invitation to my 1992 Consulier GTP-C4 on BaT

    I am both happy and sad that it went for what it did. Happy because it's still kind of in the realm of reality for me some day, but sad because it'd be cool if they were worth a bit more.

    Re: 3D printing cylinder heads ???

    Todd, I actually knew about the valve to piston and valve to valve issues. I just didn't know where that started happening, especially because we do know that stock lift is something like .330"? I...

    Re: 3D printing cylinder heads ???

    Why does it matter what a head flows at a lift that's pretty much physically impossible? I haven't checked yet (Rick Diogo could speak to this maybe), but I don't think the Masi can get a valve .500...

    Could it be done? Sure. It would cost more than just casting a custom head, though. Between the materials, machine time, and post-processing to get a truly functional product would shoot the cost...

    Re: Tilt steering column bent while driving?!

    I've thought the same thing, but holy crap it was bad! I honestly can't see myself driving the car the way I did with the wheel loose like that. Maybe I did and didn't realize it, but man...one...

    I agree...sounds like the tilt mount screws came loose. Happened on my '88 somehow while the car was sitting in an airport parking lot! When I parked it, everything was fine. Came back, damn wheel...

    I *HIGHLY* suggest the hard coating if you want any sort of longevity out of the drums. Even 7076 T6 won't stand up to sharp steels pounding against it and eventually the drums will get wear notches...

    Re: 1990 g-body BCM

    There is the "standard" and the "premium". I think the '90 is unique due to the headlight controls not being integrated until '91.
