    My un-sprung never chatters.... Chatter comes from good, soft, mushy engine & diff mounts, and/or a really fucked up flywheel. I do get a nice cling a cling cling sound if I am at a stop light with the clutch in, barely noticeable over my exhaust note. That isn't chatter, it's just they way those clutches sound.

    They hardly ever wear... I think they publish min. thickness, and I probably have it save in one of my 'info' files, but don't know which one out of hundreds to look at.

    You can try what I sent in a PM, but that was before I seen the damage. Sorry, don't have any spindles.

    When I first put one in my Datsun, it was a bit of a pain because of it being like an on/off switch. But as soon as I put a coaxial hydraulic throw out in it, all those issues went away. You may consider doing that, and shit canning the external slave/arm set up.

    I am impressed. Was thinking I was going to see some chinese dual plate, and after reading NAC's latest post, I am in ass chewing mode. Good to see someone with class still exists on the HMS Titanic.

    IS300 Carrier assembly in x8?

    That will be very difficult, since there are 3 round holes that need to be cut, but if you want to try, PM your address, and next week I will get the patterns to you. You might consider taking them to a sheet metal shop to have them cut the holes ☺️

    If you have some way to cut sheet metal, I can send you out a tracing of my patterns for the reinforcement plates.

    IS300 Carrier assembly in x8?

    Hm, never broke mine.... The only thing that breaks is where the diff bolts into the rear cross member, and that isn't cured by the different housing, since everyone who has done it still uses the 2-bolt rear cover. And the Supra rear diff housing hits the front of the cross member, setting up a bad drive shaft angle issue, that people chose to ignore, probably because they don't understand how the harmonics created by doing this destroys transmissions. On my first X8 I addressed this by modifying the subframe, so the diff sat at the correct angle. The breakage issue at the rear cure has been well documented, just see my build thread.

    The guy hasn't been here for 4 months......
  11. Ha, Wes is doing my Cressida oil pan mod :-) Or he is have that idiot at Beach Performance doing them, which means he does not have the most important trap door 😞 Those wings hold aprox. 1 qt. each, and come from Speedway Motors, about $20 each.
  12. Get rid of the junk 3rd world coil-overs. Take the largus rear bar for something a little smaller, or go larger on the front. Learn to tune spring rates, as you probably have drift springs on it. Aero, Aero, Aero.... Find the 'how to tune your suspension' thing I posted up here, and........ For god's sake, buy better tires.

    Learn to stick weld sheet metal.....1/16" 6013 rod. Used to build custom bike pipes using 20ga sheet metal, until I got old, and eyes went south, and hands started shaking (and I bought a TiG)
  14. Don't blame me for that cross brace.... Just something I had seen in Japan years ago. You have the rear plates, but do you have the front plates ? That was my idea.... Wish I had that truck, instead of the mother fucking honda CR-V I now have. Absolutely the opposite of my good handling, fast, fun to drive Datsun 620 that a fucking cunt driver totaled....
  15. Always though a 750cc water cooled snowmobile engine would have been a nice upgrade on one of those trucks.
