    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    Look at Sabelt. I'm 6'1 ish, skinny ass and broad shoulders. The Taurus model from a few years back fits like a glove.

    Steering - I want to go backwards

    These are aus spec so could be different to your LHD shizz, but heres a bit of datas. MX73 late model with PPS Rack length 635mm Stock travel with standard tie rods 159mm Total travel available 175mm with OEM rods Turns lock to lock at total travel 3 3/4 Turns lock to lock with standard tie rods 3 1/4 MX83, S2 (from factory without steering damper - don't think USDM came like that) Rack length 615mm Stock travel wit standard tie rods 138mm Total travel available (using only 6mm lock washer per side as any more will blow seals) 150mm Turns lock to lock w/standard tie rods 3 3/5
  7. R33 GTST calipers and buy some 296mm rotors for a Ford Falcon BA (australia) off ebay because the stralian dollar sucks a fat cock right now. You just need a small spacer turned up to space the disk because the x8 hub is slightly smaller. No brackets needed, calipers bolt straight on.

    Project Fuck-Up

    Are the sway bar links attached to the strut or the LCA? That was a problem for me early on with regard to binding. Or is it simply a case of some fucked up knuckles you're running?
  9. CD009? Ive got an 01 but intend to only use it to make adaptor shizz and then keep as a spare. Any idea if they're identical bolt pattern etc?

    We got one of these at work the other day. Should be able to easily probe up a head. Just need the draughtsman to work out the software. New guy started in the design room the other day, previously worked in the aero dept at williams F1 and has an aero development business with a crazy number crunching 12 core pc at home. All this stuff could come in handy for a bonkers 1j head. I can dream at least.

    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    How much weight do you think you've added Gordo? Great work btw, but would that top tube have been better off along the bottom of the member due to the solid bushings at the top resisting most of the the flex?
