  1. We came to the conclusion that the spindle developed a stress fracture from when we hit the wall in MTL back in 2011 and finally let go in Atlanta. We got the other 3 spindles and all the control arms magnetically checked and none have any signs of cracks starting. I took the spindle off my spare chassis so we will be good to go in Florida.
  2. On our last practice lap before qualifying, halfway through the lap, the left rear spindle snapped at one of the suspension arm pick ups. We removed it and tried to weld it back up but when we went out back to test it before our last attempt to put a lap down for qualifying, it snapped again. That was the only spare suspension parts we didnt have

    Matt, Just change your turbo and youll make more down low power I have 10hp less than you but make more torque with a smaller turbo. Also, AEM EMS with NOS on your current 1j and youre laughing!
  7. well guys picked up the Mark II today from the shipping yard. Anyway sit had to get a boost. ok no problem. now drove for 3.5 hours on hwy heading home. got home fine. put it in garage and go eat dinner. come back after and go to start the car and it turned over twice and then battery is dead. is it normal? im guessing after 3+ hours of hwy driving it should have charged enough to be able to start again right? well what i did is put a volt meter to the battery and it shows 11.7volts. this should be enough voltage to start it right? anyone have any imput?
