only down side is doesnt have a cat so one will need to be installed,not a big deal. vehicle is not current on registration and i would like to drive it down. was thinking of getting a temp moving permit to move it down. or would need to trailer it all the way from tahoe.

rear caster shouldnt matter what so ever on the rear.but caster affects camber because when its bent it changes the length witch also changes camber than in turn
changes toe. yeah ive done way too many alignments and repairs on cars that hit curbs. i agree with bill that that many people cant be jacking from the suspension.
maybe we should make our own suspension. when we learn the geometry and metalurgy we can start our own real race team. but seriously could we make our own suspension parts.

might be a good idea to put some lube on all the suspension bolts so we can swap them out quicker. normal road car i would put lock tite on but for a race it will be a pain if everything is too tight.

well can we attach a big piece of steel to it or somethin? sound like if its reinforced to begin with than it may be able to hold up. but comparing all the suspension to a germ car...all the suspension pieces look like tooth picks

seems like a lot of good deals on the rx7s out there.found a posting earlier today for an rx7 with a vette motor in it...tempting.
oh and please no convertibles.convertibles suck. :driving:
kinda like the 1 in fresno for 1400.or the 1 in stockton,that 1 might be a really good deal as long as tags arent too old.
still trying to get ok from the boss...hasnt really said no but not yes either.
