Finally got my covid build out on the road for a shakedown. Love the look of the drop.

The handling is like its on rails.
  • Megan 1.5" drop
  • Koni strt shocks
  • Spoon front sway
  • Beatrush pillowball mounts
The power delivery is great with the sprintex, but it will need a dyno session to clean up the tune. Makes good noises though. I'm a little uncertain about the harshness of the innovative mounts for comfort, but I'm going to try a few things out with the mounts to tune out the vibration.

Well, I had good luck and bad luck today.

Was trying to get under the car so I can get some measurements done for a little suspension work (motion ratio was the important thing in this exploratory procedure... Can't find a source)Then as I'm about to lift the other front tire up to slip another jack stand under, PSSSSSSSSSSST! Oil starts spewing out the jack.

Had to use the spare jack to get it off the jackstand... I had to think about those people who don't use jackstands when it's "optional" (e.g doing brakes). Also, wondering what the car would've done dropping from about a foot and a half off the ground :O

Looks great, a rear wing will be the cherry on the top!

Applies to the three and six-ton heavy-duty steel jack stands with item numbers 56371, 61196, and 61197. sounds like the tools they manufactured them with were not replaced often enough and they are concerned with the pawl shearing. Sounds like most were sold through harbour freight, but some online too?

I've got one still on the shelf... I ran out of primer and haven't gotten good weather toget back out and painting.
And with the recent recall on Pittsburg brand jackstands...

Kinda scary considering I had the CRZ up on 4 of these bad boys for 6 weeks.

Even scarier: I had the excursion up on these doing some suspension work.

Thanks, I have the 3 ton aluminium pair, so no worries here.

More chinese stuff :D

This time front hood struts. I tried the configuration that was showed in the manual, but the hinges were bending slightly whenever I tried to close the hood :

... so I decided to reverse them, like this:

balance point:

61398


They fit either way, no interference with anything. They even fit slightly better the way I installed them, there is more space for heat shield and it doesn't push on it. Also the hood closes more easily, opens higher and gives more room for activities. It was slightly harder to install, I had to insert the nuts in tiny slit inside the hood, threaded them on the ziptie and applied glue to one side so it glued itself to the inner part of the hood when I pulled the ziptie.

Also broken stop light this sunday, forgot to close the trunk when reversing out of the garage :( It's glued for now, but I'm gonna replace it soon:
