Dammit, I just realized I put M-X-63 in the title of this thread. Obviously I have been spending way too much time on the cressida board recently LOL If a MOD would change that to MA63 I would appreciate it.

I concur with Ken on the caster benefits. Just not sure how much is too much caster. I've seen some BMWs with 6+ degrees caster, but there must be a point of diminishing returns. I'll try some caster changes this year.
Hoping this will be a comeback year for me. The Supra has been inactive for too long. Got some interesting mods in my head for the car.
Btw, I just loved reading of the budget BBK, and the strut rod. I just can't find verification it is legal for my DSP class. I'm too modified to fit under the Street Touring Unlimited allowance for DSP, and DSP doesn't seem to allow the same mods as STU. Kinda caught between a rock and a urethane bushing.
Great mods though!

On the flip side no one is ever going to know about the brakes or Suprafiends gts steering arms. They look stock, other then maybe 4 or 5 of us across north amarica no one in the solo sceen knows any thing about these old cars. It's deferant with miatas and such were every other guy there had one at some point and was bending every rule in the book as fast as they were being writen.Just an 82 supra Hidden Content

Yup neither one is legal in DSP. I bet you could replace the 2 CNC'd metal spacers they provide for the front mount with derlin and flat washers and it would be legal, since derlin is an alowwable bushing material and it would be located in the factory location. Theres loopholes in everything For some reason it seems like the struts are working better now, maybe the binding issue was as bad as I thought it was. Brake feel is also better as expected, I got on them pretty hard from 120 ish and I could comfortably use more than I ever had before.

I have no doubt those replacement strut rods work much better. The freedom of suspension travel is obvious. I'm also jealous of everyone who has better brakes than me (thats just about every integra, bmw, civic, neon, suby). These are great improvements to the cars that Wes describes. If I were just looking to improve my car for the street, with no limitations....yeah, in a heartbeat.
