    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    no idea how our dollar gets affected by anything, never took economics lol blanket healthcare. no family doctors out in bc, all walk in clinics, typical wait time is 1-3hrs to get basic walk in stuff done, but that is covered by our medical service plan we all pay into, albeit a flawed plan. surgery can be months and months away on the regular, private options have started to pop up as an alternative but arent covered by our health services and would be out of pocket. definitely better than still having to wait and then re mortgage your house. our houses out here are 400k+ (condo/townhouse) some houses, typically in the 700+ range though pending area. but thats all besides the point because in manitoba houses are in the 1-200k range too oh well

    how big is the oem front sway to this new one? if you want a laugh, type in 500cdn dollars and see how worthless our money is to the US dollar. i wanna have a good cry after that

    while learning, many ppl fuck up. however, if all you do is drive parking lot events, you shouldn't have anything to worry about...but are you "really drifting"? its not something that worries or bothers me. honestly shouldnt be an issue with large venues, evergreen has like.....nothing to hit and other than the banks its a parking lot...imo... PARC has those rumble strips and other things to hop over, which may ... will result in chassis damage and or wheel damage. Its just something to consider. Im not on either camp, but those who over engineer and over build something they have little seat time in (most "drifters") they tend to break a lot of stuff and dont catch it and keep having fucked up alignment or loose bits. I've broken just about everything on the s13 while i was learning and progressing as an aggressive driver. With the supra and the cressida i was past all those points and my only issue is all these new drivers I teach and try to educate. You do you man, what you did isn't bad or "dumb"

    Gordo...you don't drift on a regular basis. I too am anti reinforce LCAs. Drift car no, Grip car yes. I just powered through my vibration...was in the 180kmhr speed for sure as I had the bottom of my stomach drop for a second in the event i lost control of my steers..which also sucks due to the bushings i have that are somehow made of grease? now im curious what the same factor is in all the builds that this would be universal to the x8

    when i did my longer LCAs i just used 2 of the long x8 inners and then centered the rack. worked for the 15-20mm or whatever i lengthened mine. With long LCAs, x7 rack and OEM knuckles i got a whole bunch of angle and is perfect for how i drive (no backies, those are for chumps) DId you find the vibration? i still have it in mine (ive done nothing) and the only other x8 driver ive met, he has it too and has done all the mods, diff and sub bushings, all arms, driveshaft etc. I have 100% stock everything in the back minus my kaaz diff set to spec, and i got mad vibrations, but they steady out the faster i go, so....yolo?

    Sleeper MX83 build

    im with gordo. tires make a MASSIVE difference. the 100 tread wears, the 200s and then the 320 and above. I'm a big fan of the star specs from dunlop because of their sizing, quality, price and availability. theres a good market for the every day 200 tread wear tire but the 320s and above are there for us ppl who live in areas with 4 seasons and see rain. an NT01 from nitto and other 100 tread wears are more often than not made for a track only day instead of a day to day due to wear...but it will be a fantastic year or less of driving. i do understand the idea behind a HUGE brake and "small" tires..for everyday tires anyways, but a quality every day tire isnt terribly expensive or hard to get..especially in the USA

    SG JZ Alternator Relocation Kit

    interesting idea. any reason it was moved to begin with? i like it simply to help the PS pump have another arm to make sturdy. oddly make the motor more compact

    Not saying it's wrong, should have a few Jack stands under it or some wood. I still use a jack to jack a car up and then out stands under it with the jack still holding so if or when the jack gives way, I don't get crushed. It's an extra 5min of time to find stands and out them under. I have a ton of OEM Jack's I put under everything when I pull stuff or make stuff

    Kyle Anson's Cresshita Build Thread

    i have an x7 rack that was "depowered" in its life, some sort of conversion rack bushings, is300 pump now, flipped pulley as it didnt line up previous, made a L bracket to support the pump, full AN line, blocked the solenoid off because it was unplugged before (steered like cadillac) then i did long LCAs, steering was difficult at low speeds, great on high way. decided to toss my x8 solenoid back on the rack, instant cadillac at all times, then my pump gave up and then i swapped pumps. maybe having it blocked off was bad? maybe it was my failing pump? maybe it was the longer LCAs as theres more tension and leverage (my supra has no PS and pre arms it was like stock, after arms its a tank)

    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    quite the opposite. my recaros have good waist sizing then widens out for leg and balls, all brides new and old ive sat in, all legit ones, are tight in the waist and dont widen much, so my balls have zero room, as well as the shoulders pushing in. the newer ones got better, but i still like the recaro for my body size

    The x8 solenoid fits the x7 rack at least. I have it in mine

    When my ps did not work it was just my solenoid. Then I hooked it back up, then my pump died lol. I used a is300 pump but they are spacer out a c hair more, so I flipped the pulley around and now it lines up correctly. A local friend jimmyd up a GM pump with a res on it, seems to be readily available and cheap but I have no interest in doing that much work for something I barely drive. If u do x7 rack it uses a different bush. From what I keep seeing all these urethane bushs are garbage. Mine slips, Jordan has eaten 2 sets I'm sure there's more who have had a ruff go of them. I'm going to look into oem replacements if I can't get these to stop slipping. When u turn the wheel and nothing happens on the highway...that's scary
