what happened to my order?!
Posted 18 September 2012 - 07:23 PM
Look, I'm looking into ordering coilovers, I can drift my shit on single tire fire with a 7m, I just want shit I order to get here swiftly for my 2j build now.
Stephen, are you referring to cutting the strut tubing lower to attain more herrfrushness? That's what I think you are getting at.
How many of you have no problems with megans?

1986 KA-T AE86 Corolla coupe: For sale for ever maybe?
1977 Datsun 280Z: 1.5jz aem v2 and holset.
Cressida's are for bandwagoners, real drifters drive pignose s13's with rb20's and xxr's.

why do we spend our time and money on shitty cars that cant love us back?

Should have spent the money on the s9/stance shit because I know they are probably stiffer.BC didn't exist back when I jumped the cress bandwagon.Megan are 2 soft,but are pretty nice for just daily driving. Three years no problems,they cost fuck all.
I remember when there was fuck all for options when it came to the cressida platform.Be thankful you have options.Gerard/s9 crew pioneered a lot of cool shit for the x chassis.Dealing locally with s9 I have never had a an issue.I truly hope your issues get resolved.Some times you roll the dice and get fucked.Shit happens

This was all stemmed from us trying to get Mitch coilovers from G that fell through. Since G was gonna be a bit out on getting him a set, I took matters into my own hands and made shit happen. Now, plenty of happy BC customers are driving around low enough to be happy. If you want lower, I've already been in talks with BC about using different struts that are valved correctly so no modification would be needed. They just told me to gauge the interest and let them know. I honestly think they go plenty low enough, and if you want more than mod them.
I also kick started the XM parts for our cars out of necessity. I didn't want to pay $200 for X90 mount brackets off of ebay and called rich to see if he could make me some. 2 hours later Mitch stopped by to say hi and Rich told him to start hoisting up his engine, and well you all know the rest of the story there. I'm proud of what it has turned into and stand behind Rich 100%, but I am also open to other companies that make and deliver a great product. I was in talks with Alex Pfeiffer about rear-arms over 2 years ago, but let it go because both S9 and XM were planning to launch stuff. We all just want parts, not hopes and dreams.
G is probably super rad and I like his ambition and strive to grow this community, but at the same time business is business and this car is fucking stupid. I just really don't like when someone has to put another product down to show that their shit is better, instead of trying to improve design and network with everyone to make shit awesome. I think G should narrow his scope and work with his strong points. I would love a bunch of rad kits, lips, wings, and maybe some fiberglass fenders. If he focused on that I think it would take some stress off of everything else because out-sourcing is never going to be able to compete with Rich's in-house production capabilities. Work with your peers, don't turn them into enemies. I hate the fact that I saw G at FD Seattle, standing by himself eating popcorn, and I felt if I said hi it would be weird or I would be ignored. We put countless hours into the same fucking cars, we should have plenty to talk about and there should be no animosity. Now I'm not saying that is how it would have went down but I am a big part of his competition.
I'm done rambling, I've got shit to do on my 929 and a few harnesses/cars to finish but I wanted to voice my opinion/influence on these matters.

My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.
