Reece, that bottom picture is my favorite picture I've ever seen of my car. Thank you.
And thanks Ryan, Aggresive driving is where my heart lay. The car also drives amazing so that helps a lot.

So I never thought I would say this but I almost feel as if I need more angle. What are some simple "bolt on" ways of acheive going more angle other than that offset rack spacer deal or knuckles etc.
tie rods and ends?

slip on rack spacers would be cheapest/easiest.

you can also get inner tie rods that have them built in.

pbm inners have the spacers built in, i would recommend those, they have been taking a beating on my car the past two seasons. everything else has bent, or had the joints go bad (tein, circuit sports, oem, and some other bullshit)

nice driving this weekend, didn't realize your car was sr till i heard turbo spool while tandem-ing haha

Thanks for the info Scott, those were the first things I checked out but they even say on their site that they're not good for "slammed" cars for whatever reason and I'm like whatttt because they're so cheap and perfect.
And thank you for the complement, but I am still bone stock KA With just a light flywheel. Leading you and Josh was so exciting. Much more at 52!!

that makes more sense, legit had no clue he was back there till that video and didn't put all of that together in my head lol

def had fun tandeming, been trying to work on staying close to people rather than how everyone else wants to "run trains" and just look like a bunch of cars on the track at once. i want shit to look like some cool tandem action

Dude that's what I say everytime I see that happening. It just looks like a mess. People would rather see two cars on each other's doors than a bunch of cars just going at once

Update. So I drove 51, which was seriously the most fun shit ever. And have just been putting hundreds miles on the car driving around and streeting. This has actually taken a toll on my front tires because my alignment was worse than I thought and now they are junk. I guess I should have expected that from running such a grippy tire on the front of my car that I daily drive. (federal RSR)

So other than that I have been trying to focus more attention on the other car, finished bolting up the control arms and stuff to the subframe, got the interior pieces it was missing and put that all back together, so it's complete. I am just waiting on some cheap rear links to show up so I can put it on the ground and turn the car around so I can start pulling the motor. I sold the blitz nur spec and Megan racing headers to my friend Miguel with a Cool zenki, and he ordered my an ISIS turbo manifold in return. Also started installing the front brake stuff that the car was missing and decided I would take the time to to repaint them properly as the previous owner and done shit horrible red rattle can on them. Originally I wanted to get all the calipers chrome dipped but that would been too much money so I just settled for paint. But I as stripped the old paint off and started sanding them they really started to shine up, so fuck looks like I'm gonna try and polish these.

Here's how they turned out, before and after,

I actually ended up re sanding them even more after that and they look better, still not chrome like I wanted but it was free to do so fuck it. Ilia has a place that PVD coats so I'm waiting to hear back on what that will cost and maybe go that route.

Sorry for the stupid long post and only one picture but now you're all caught up as to what I've been doing.

Bumpdate on the other car, I pulled the motor and put it on an engine stand to prep the engine for KA-T setup, and prep the engine bay for paint. This was like two months ago if not longer btw haha. Decided KA-T wasn't really what I wanted to do so I sold the motor and the turbo setup and will be purchasing an S14 SR after final bout. Finished all the prep on the engine bay and finally sprayed it this past weekend. I am extremely happy with the finished results. I painted everything including the wheel wells because I've always wanted to do that.
