    JZX81 OEM strut tower brace

    MxPawns, are you speaking of the radio control delete plate, with the little door? There are 4 versions, RHD, LHD, early, and late. Good fucking luck... If you find one in Japan, it won't fit. I have a new one for my 90, LHD, that came out of Europe. LHD versions won't fit due to internal dash reinforcement rib that is mirrored between the two. Early/late is just a different plug on the flasher switch.

    Kyle Anson's Cresshita Build Thread

    You are not dedicated enough to win center caps in Japan. Stop bidding early, wait until 10 seconds before auction end, bid way higher than you have been, and keep bidding (most listing have an auto 5 minute auction extension) until you win.

    Bought a Mark II JZX81

    Jason T, the FRS Torsen is the same one that came in the Tourer-V in Japan. It is the newer T2 design, with parallel gears. No special shafts required, like the old Torsen T1 did. Brian, you picked the weak ass Cusco bar, with the joint in the middle. If you lean on it in the corners enough, you will split those silly aluminum lock nuts on the adjustable part. Sell it, and I will show you the one piece one in Japan, if they are still there.

    Humans are such easy prey

    And I thought all X8 owners just had cheap ass Chinese shit BOVs... Good to see some good parts being used. You guys with the Blitz, (or any piston type) you will want to pull, and check them for getting dirty, and clogged every once in a while. No matter how good your air filter is, it will pass some fine dirt, and no turbo is 100% oil tight, and if you are dumping crank case fumes back into the intake, all that will make for a nice mud build up in the BOV. Mineral spirits is the best for cleaning them, since it won't hurt the clear coat on the Blitz.

    Sleeper MX83 build

    Probably get more out of it on eBay, selling it off one piece at a time, the way old, tired, poorly built, money pit X8s are disposed of. Hey short bus rider, do a fucking intro, or stay silent. Fucking mongoloid newb. Isn't there a snow blower forum some where that you can be welcomed on?

    Picture of said bike, damn it !
  7. I have one pair of the sleeves to use the Supra lower control arm bearings, and since you into Chinese suspension parts, they are making the Supra bushings now, on eBay for $15 each. Just punch in the Toyota p/n, and you will find them. You will get rid of all the clunks back there.
  8. So did the taper on the ball joint stem fit the upright ?
  9. No such word as 'grounded', unless you are talking about electrical power distribution. (electrical ground - "make sure you grounded the machine correctly") The past tense of 'grind', is just 'ground'. And you welded on a Chinese ball joint ? You realize that it probably had a plastic seat in it, right ? There is no weight on the upper control arm, just side loading, all the weight is transferred directly to the shock mount on the upright. So the snap ring probably would have been just fine. It's probably not now, as getting spring steel that hot will kill the heat treatment it had. Have you been spending too much time on facebook, or ziptied ?

    WTB center driveshaft bearing

    Threw several of them away. I have a one piece shaft, but for auto fitment....

    Hey JC, the official jack-off, how about doing an intro first, per forum rules.

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    Or maybe I can just drive..... My son has nearly shits himself riding with me, when I push things a little too far, and get out of shape. He refuses to navigate for me at the west Texas road race. Besides, real mods are more time and $$ consuming than bolt-ons. Wait, all X-chassis are $$ consuming......

    I'm saving the pictures of the sharp car, so I can taught you when you take the paint off, and crumple the sheet metal at a drift event.
  15. Yep, after importing a couple of tons of Japanese LSDs since 2000, I am sure. By the way, I stopped importing kaaz LSDs, as they are about the weakest out of Japan. Many were damaged when I got them, and the N. American kaaz guy is a total loss. I could get parts out of Japan quicker, and cheaper than going through that YoYo.
