The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.

EGZ did you get your new brakes on? I just swapped a newer set of front calipers on mine, my original one where shot.

Yea, they are on. New control arms did the track. Trying to finish bleeding them now. But I need to make a correction on the rear suspension. I can't seem to find a metal fabricator out by me.

What do you need to do to the rear suspension? Do me a favor measure the diameter (OD) of you stock zx3 brake piston. I’m wondering in there the same as the svt.

2.06", or 52.33mm.

I got it done. Got some 1/8" steel, and make heavy duty fender washers to make things work. The spring hats I had for the rear had a too large of a diameter, and slipped past the the lip on the shock piston.

Do you have real coliover in the rear on yours.

My car is pretty much ready I did find that I have a vacuum leak around one of my injectors but that shouldn’t be to hard to take care of.

Do you have a popup sun shade?

I’m going to try and get the track around 5, hopefully we’ll be able to get in at that time when are you arriving?

hmm mine look to be 2.11"

But considering how a lot of this stuff is pretty standard they may actually be the same size. Maybe I can rebuild my old calipers then.

Yea, I have a sleeve on the shock, and the coil spring on it.

But its all done. Just need to get the car inspected, and if time permits, get my header back on. Might try to squeeze in one more brake bleed at the track too.

Not sure when. If I leave work at 11am, it will take me 2.5 hours to get there, so I could be there by about 1:30 - 2:00.

That a new set up for your rears? I’ll have to check it out, I haven’t ever seen one like that.

Can you get in to the track that early?
