    Fiberglass parts D_ApexWorks mx83/jzx81

    Gordo, it might be less quality then other item's on the market but it is also at the correct price point for it.
  3. Thought I would make a place we can all post new products we stumble across that are more X8 related anyway, Hardrace has bought out some lower arm's for X81's. i wonder if this will mean more products by them for X8s [/img] http://www.hardrace.com/VEHICLE_Search.asp?Car_Make=21&Car_model=63&Car_Type=596&x=37&y=14
  4. E7 people use to as well, but now they just hate on it all. some of there items are good, but 90% of there item's are copied from some other company and they add one item and call it there own
  5. Koyo radiators have had X81 radiators on the shelf for like 10 years, for them to be developing a X83 one say's they have not researched there catalogue
  6. Have any of you used different knuckles or on the ones you purchased and never tried anything else?
  7. Most drift meet's we have string alignment tools and so on, so i guess not much of an issue vs america maybe?

    Fuel cell's

    Ok found the pictures Stock fuel tank, but with dual pump's in Matt L's car My setup, (might still go this route in new build) not sure why i had the smaller cell, the plan was to use it as a surge tank with dual intake pump's then i was like NAH CBF and purchased the in cell surge setup and had a 044 in it. then i sold my Cell and it went into this JZX100 FD car, Power vehicles build for Australia FD, as you can see it is mounted directly over the sub frame if i was to do things again i would probobly do something like this as well. but with the radium intake setup witch is now what all the power vehicles use.

    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.
  10. 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

    Australia. 50km is about an 1 hour drive. Wife works out in the opposite direction so it was a good middle ground.

    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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  23. 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.
