      It probably won't get beyond the low 170's without cams. Not that that should sway you. You can have a quick car with 170whp.

      R888's seem to be a favorite with the high hp Honda community. That 1/2 mile green integra that's been cleaning up at the high speed events has been using them to good effect.

      That comparison alone could have made me fall in love with the track by itself.

      "I just beat a mk4,5,6 with x thousand dollars in mods"
      "i just beat a guy with 400hp"

      Just makes ya feel warm...

      I've heard the opposite theory about kevlar, that it does straighten itself out. I'd like to think the years long beating i've put on mine lends well to that theory as well. I drive the **** out of...

      I do like some oversteer potential. The black car, with 5 lug junk, stock front sway, weitecs, autotech rear on full stiff, and kumho mx's was a monster. On any tire short of the kumho's, snap...

      I've def melted all the organic full face I've had in a car. I dig that. I wonder how the average 400 hp vrt driver would feel about how a Kevlar disk works.

      SHOW ME your custom VRT set-ups

      Out of curiosity, why are you guys using 6 pucks and not full face Kevlar?

      My engineering brain tells me that the reduced contact surface area would only increase the RATE at which the clutch...
    12. headed in a different direction (function>form)

      I agree, poly is garbage in theory for locations where flex is necessary. But then, so is a regular rubber bushing to a lesser extent. Our lower control arm bushing layout is totally amongst the...

      My beam has no stock bar. When I cut it out of my old car, the stock rsb weighed 9lbs. I thought I could do a custom bar lighter/more effectively than that one.

      I really didn't like the feel of my gti with no front bar. But there might have been other factors contributing to my feelings of poor handling. :laugh: I feel weird about taking the front off.

      What do you think about trying front KW springs on the rear Weitecs? Would they blow?

      I feel like the Shine style would be the last one i'd think to make for the sake of adjustability. Is there...
    16. Has anyone around here ever....'made' a rear swaybar for these cars?

      My car handles like a gd pig right now. Vr powered, short gears/LSD, 4cyl suspension and brakes, GL beam, and all of the weight taken from the rear of the car. It just pushes all the time, and i...
