    Bought a Mark II JZX81

    Haltech, but only because there support is awesome, i went Emtron KV8, but that is in the same class as M1 series and only a couple $100 more then the haltec's i was looking at.
  2. Same could be said for people who have knuckle's, why do you need them? you can do backwards entry's on stock knuckles and have the easy of driving..... but the use i see is, grip vs drift day's and different tracks you might not want zero

    Fuel cell's

    I have gone fuel cell, but i cant find the pictures now and well that is all LOL. if i was to do it again i would move the tank setup as close as i could to behind the backseats instead of in stock location but who know's really

    Bought a Mark II JZX81

    I have been married now for just over a year, i have cut back on car's and have made a deal on 4. My MX32, My Street JZX81, My race JZX81 and then a future car im yet to decided. (lead sled/hotrod or some stupid tube frame fast fucker race car with some toyota shell on top with 1UZ twin turbo at a minimum and a 1:1 power to weight) I have seen my car funds get lower and lower but in saying that i have multiple houses and about to buy my forever home where a huge budget has gone to a shed 6 car minimum with 2nd floor. so the wife and i work out a lot and while i do see a lot more in her favour im not un happy it has put me back on track with my car's Kids are on the cards but and i do see me putting a fund aside of BMX's, Gokarts and Gaming lol so while she has a little issue with me blowing money on car's but she also see's they bring me joy and happiness so she is ok with that. i should also add we have made a new deal i can get a motorbike if the new house is more then 50KM away from work lol.

    probobly because that seems the standard, kid comes and your dreams go.
  10. I know there is a subframe change break in the australian car's and a difference between series 1 and 2, but it is minor and only the front bushes are a little thinner.
  11. i'm surprised there is nothing that fits from another make/model. i know when i got the superpro bushes made for X8 Arm's majority matched the LS400's.

    Fiberglass parts D_ApexWorks mx83/jzx81

    All for Dapexworks item's in fact, his probobly the only parts supplier out of Russia that i would be happy to stock his items in house so i did not have to manufacture them LOL

    Russian fiberglass

    That is the post showing KFD item's, it could not even support its own weight and as you can see, you can see through it. fitment was worse. in regards to before X100 came around i should have worded it better and had it as before BN 100 items came around and as for the serial nine type 2 kit, honestly the ugliest kit i have ever seen produced for a X8. X100 front lips fit X8 series 2 bar's pretty well so it would not be hard to cut and shut X100 items to X8

    Russian fiberglass

    I dont know who told you this. BIGWIN Type 1 kit is original and made by BIGWIN before JZX100s even came around. (now discontinued but replica made by ciscokids) BIGWIN type 2 kit is the same as the K&M missile motorsports japan released 2010 (See picture below). (This kit was then replicated by S9 and by replicated im pretty sure they just buy them from drift house in the philippines) also made by Dapexworks, KFD ect. BIGWIN type SP is just a modded type 1 to look sleeker bigwin went bankrupt a couple years ago and a new company bought them out Destructive king by dart izuami is an original kit it looks like BN Sports type 1 (what ever smaller kit is) but modded on the edges near wheel arches to be smaller sides are like type 2 (what ever fuck off large kit is) pinched and pulled up and same as rear Kidsheart tezuka kit was mix of destructive king front bar with hippo rear and sides you then have the other K&M missile that is a JZX100 kit modded to suit
  15. They are all hit and miss, china can build some awesome stuff if you are willing to pay. when i was getting quotes to get some items machined, they had quilaity grades from A being best E being worse. E being with in 5mm and only the first item checked. to A being with in .005mm and every item checked. as for hard race and megan arms i would say they are close to on par with each other hard race has semi decent rep in the grip racing seen. in regards to KFD Spoilers and arm's well nothing but bad news from them from items not fitting and spoilers folding in on them self due to the one layer of fiberglass, some might remember i posted a picture on facebook of the fitment of a KFD item it was poor. +1 DAPEXworks well be buying item's off him that is for sure.

    Sorry for the instergram filter's, forgot to upload these to imgur before making them fancy, so had to download them off that to then re upload. Sheeting shaft done, need to buy tie rod's and rack end's to complete but still on fence if i will run stock X3 arm's or go a tad longer with X62. In regards to the rear subframe and diff mount' they are complete, removed bushes put in the new super pro one's, added the camber mod plate's, got to clean it all up a bit but rear end is in for now, have to set it up as best i can, need to order some desk's and so on. but esentially the "custom" side of the fabrication work is done and it is now just neating item's up and painting them a pretty black. Ended up taking the water pump off the engine to replace it and it turns out there was a bit of gunk in there, so going ahead and replacing the whole rear housing and flushed the engine out to get what i could out, how ever i now have to wait for the rear housing to arrive so engine is disassembled again and i will most lickly have to run some radiator flush product when i get engine running and hope for the best. but pretty happy with the progress.

    To be honest, the GTE covers of a VVTI dont fit on the non VVTI side, i had to modify the mounting holes to do so. it was not to bad only about a inch out on some hole's but this is probobly something no one will tell you and i have read it before people saying they are a direct swap. Getting the pulley kit this Friday, so hopefully by Saturday i will have all the front covers on and ATI balancer/Greddy pulley's

    Rear Upper Control Arm ball joint cheap fix

    /facepalm I said i need your front LCA's and i need them 1 inch longer then stock. as i did not want to have to adjust it for the extra 1 inch, i wanted to have it un adjusted and be longer. when i got the item's they extended the incorrect end so sway bar mounts would not fit. ij could just chop them and weld the mounts back but i just went S13 LCA's in the end and gave up dealing with XM.

    Rear Upper Control Arm ball joint cheap fix

    I had them custom make items before (extend front LCA by an inch), lets just say i have a $500+ door stop/paper weight as the item did not fit and when i contacted them they did not want to hear about it and ended up not responding. But i see your point with stance fad and why they would make something to suit. but in saying that it is 10mm(CBF translating to MERICA format) they could have sorted that out like S9 did with there design that works for all.

    Rear Upper Control Arm ball joint cheap fix

    XM cant even make lower control arms that zero out, i would not put my trust in them making upper arms
  23. Contacted hard race, they actually have everything and one arm is the same as JZX100. so here is another option for people.
