you should put on those rota grids on your volvo instead. I wanted those so bad for my 242 by could find any for the right price plus they were hella wide 9.5 inch i think

The ones on the grey s13??

They are P45R's which are almost identical to the grids, except they are 5-spoke instead of 6, only reason I know that is another buddy has the grids on his rx7. They are so close in design.

6 days after my friend put those rotas on he was driving while angry and tried to drift and wiped out the 2 left side rotas and 2 of the rear control arms on a median. Cars fixed now and hes got the rims we tried on my car back on it. the rotas pretty much exploded on impact, they just crack and break instead of bend.

Unfortunatly no, hottest time of the year is currently upon us, and working on getting my Daily caught up on maintnance and repairs.

Did some shopping around one day to try and find a budget way of making some better torque rods for the rear to stop the axle from moving around, it seems to be getting really bad. May have to reinforce the bushings till I can make and ipd order. Also need coilover kits for the front really badly.

Then it comes to money, unfortunatly things have been slow, ya know how it goes.

I'm planning on doing the saab inserts so i can go a touch lower, right now i'm just barely touching cut down bumpstops on the front.

Gotta do some searching for those control arm angle correction spacer things

I upped the boost to 15psi recently too and it's really kinda scary with the current suspension situation

Went up to the drags again saturday night, best time of that night is 10.1, not the best time I've gotten in the car though. The added boost just makes the car spin unless you pedal it.

Some pics from yesterday. camera is not so good.

$20 homebrew adjustable panard. Eliminated the sloppy bushing and replaced with heim joint. The other factory bushing is solid.

yeah no kidding, the improvment with the one joint and a now centered diff is astonishing, makes me not feel too doubtfull about choosing a volvo. Really magifies the front now, but the goodies are in the mail
