Update on the burgundy turd:

Yesterday I reindexed the rear torsion bars (with the help of Rob - robstah) and mounted the rear set of those white ROH wheels up to the front, so the offset is a bit more aggressive and will match the deep lip theme a little better. I think I may Plasti-dip the Forgelines white for the time being so they all sort of match.

Everyone happy now? lol









And here's one more so you can compare the stock height of a 944 and laugh at it.

Well since we are sharing...

I don't understand: drag racing, super fast factory pickup trucks, nascar, modifying a honda civic, putting 295 rear tires on a 944 that never sees the track, very spicy food, unicorns, politics, and why my shoelaces sometimes untie by themselves when I tighten them really good.

I will save the "proper" performance stance and fat tires mods for one of my other 944's. This car is just to have some fun with.

Drag racing - Never cared for it
Super fast factory pickup trucks - nope, no idea either
NASCAR - don't think I've ever watched a race
Modifying a Honda civic - I don't get it either
Putting 295 tires on a 944 that never sees the track - waste of money IMO
Very spicey food - dont eat it
Unicorns - ...
Politics - meh
Shoelaces - I have that same problem

Seems like we are pretty similar, yet I can't understand stretched. To each his own, but man...and the VW crowd loves it too...

I appreciate the comment about the orange car though, I believe it will be a long while before it's back on the road again. I would be lucky if it was done by the end of 2013... It's going to be a beast when it's done though!
Did me questioning why your silver and burgundy car were so stock make you do this?
Pretty sure you would have seen this by now Elliot.

All of the above and people who don't put on their signal until they are already in the turning lane. I know your turning!Cuz you're already in the lane!Oh ya,and Ferrari owners who I wish would drive their cars like they are meant to be driven...fast and hard...not to the car show 2 miles away once a week .

Hopefully going to make a few adjustments and plasti-dip the wheels and junk soon, then snap some new pictures for everyone to analyze.

Yep, I love the Keep Drifting Fun videos. That's the perfect example of what drifting is all about. And you can clearly tell so many of the cars in that video are slammed to the ground with stretched tires. It's part of the culture of the sport I guess.

Here are a few clips of me in action, which they must have forgot to edit into their video


annoying background music warning...

I love it. Did you skip 1 or 2 steps on the torsion bar?

Just 1 spline, and the spring plate eccentric adjustment is bottomed out also.
