    This site is sleepy.

    I drove the car some more. It's been mostly wet so nothing has broken to speak of. Find myself working on others cars, it's nice to make money instead of waste it on this thing. Last track day was 4 hours of hot-lapping. Turbo glowed the whole time, oil pressure at 900rpm never was bellow 20-25psi. Oil cooler and Amsoil racing stuff works! yay

    You should have seen it when I first opened the hood, yikes.



    It also occurred to me that the back of this car needs more grip.
    /
    Pauls says correct the geometry.
    /
    Longer uppers + heims
    /
    Stock uppers are almost (5mm) hitting axle housing and point into ground
    /
    Heim uppers are larger diameter and hit axle
    /
    I Can't lower my car if it cant go lower
    /
    fuuuuck

    ?

    SO I cut floor.



    Still fits "inside" the stock rear seats, lets the upper arm be about an inch longer with the axle sitting where it is, or 1.5" once the pinion angle is correcter ish. I'm trying to science, but the secret is now I will be able to lower my car another two inches.

    Will the driveshaft tunnel and sheetmetal above diff allow such tomfoolery?

    Ya better pictures please.
    Do you have traction brackets yet?
    Or make some, it will help alot too.
    That link is actually pretty easy to understand, and figure out how to use the geometry to yor adavantage.

    I have had T3 traction brackets on my race cars since I bought the 86. When the new axle and spool go in I will just weld some biggins on. I figure make them be just off the ground with two flat 14" wheels.

    Dug I will post pictures once things are actually tacked in place.

    I finished all the fab. I'm not sure if I am going to seam seal it from the outside. There is no holes, other than the ones that are supposed to be there. If anything it would be to stop water and crud from pooling in the little crevasses. I may need to add more structure to these in the future? we will see

    Welcome to the floor of my car.


    POR15 and the bombed grey, I did the wheel wells since I have no covers for them. It will look much better inside with those not being white...



    The piece that sits flush with the frame rail is 11ga and the top and other side of the box is 16ga, same ish as stock. The outside (11ga) overlaps the framerail 0.75" and is welded inside and out. I have 5 different potential locations. It's a little weird since they are on an angle but it the space I have to work with.


    These will fit inside of the rear "seats", but seeing as how the links will point directly at the passengers spines, the rear seats will just be for show and wheel storage.



    This is the axle at full droop, with the pinion pointing where ever.



    This sort of shows how the links will sit compared to stock.


    And how stoked my panhard is!

    Looks great man. How does the panhard bar act when it's tucked so far up? Are you going to notch the top of the body side to allow it to travel higher?

    I hope the T3 piece of **** breaks to be honest.

    Before this ordeal the axle sat 1" off the last bump stop. Even just being on throttle the car would be sitting on them. So it rode like a dump but didn't articulate the panhard at all. Panhards hurt my brain. I feel like the second it isn't level the sideways G's of the car would push the axle up/down. Makes me like the idea of a waste of time link.

    It is something I need to raise to get it back into a normal swing. I want the car to be ready for the track this weekend so I might just get ig'nant and run it as is. self clearancing!



    Here is a very incomplete list of things to fix before this thing goes back into the public. Some ugly parts of my car!







    PM me if you have tail lights!!!! $$$ this is you derek! hhaha

    It would be very cool to throw a gopro under there to diagnose / gather data of exactly what's going on back there while you're running the track.

    No he hates T3 stuff. I helped him mod some OEM 4 links back when he had his ae86, not sure what's in there now.

    My car came with 2 t3 parts when I bought it. A panhard and traction brackets. I don't know how they ****ed both of those up so much...

    666 machined me the swedged tubing and they are QA1 HM heims. I got a bunch of pictures to post from the busy last few days.

    No tail lights for you! Haha

    Chop Off your axle side panhard mount, move it down till the Panhard is level. Make a nice strong bracket. My first attempt cracked after a few weeks. Second attempt is way stronger.
    Cusco and some other jdm make rear RCA, that is essentially what this is, it cancels out the brain hurting.

    I would prefer to move the body side up. Less metal and less weight. Also I feel like it would end up being stronger.

    Probabably both, stronger and lighter.
    But more of a pain, unless you have a hoist, and drop the tank, then it gets easier to work in there.
    I took the easy way, then the body side tore itself apart, so I had to repair it anyway.
    But at least the side load is directly from the side and not pushing up or down as you corner.
