I know, but I hate stopping a good wrenching session for photo time.. I will get some tomorrow for sure.All that and no pics?? hahahaha
Oh and BTW, maybe we can meet up next time I'm working in San Diego and I can get a ride in your car and see if the Bilsteins are worth it to me.
Oh Im with you on the stopping to take pics... I'm terrible with that. I was talking about a post-install set of shots.I know, but I hate stopping a good wrenching session for photo time.. I will get some tomorrow for sure.
Just lemme know when you are coming down. My next autocross is March 3rd at Qualcomm stadium, should be a good workout for the setup.
I am looking forward to the commute in the morning to compare this setup to my stock FE3 stuff. After the alignment is done tomorrow I will swap back to my RE-011 and stock GXP wheels to check on road noise differences between the setups.
I can already tell the R888's are a louder running tire.
My wife is in nursing school and I am home with the kids on Thursday nights. I live down in Chula Vista and work up at Point Loma. Maybe we can get together for lunch when you are down this way next.Oh Im with you on the stopping to take pics... I'm terrible with that. I was talking about a post-install set of shots.
And yeah the R888 are gonna be louder for sure. I think I'll be down there sometime in the next 2-3 wks. Where about in SD are you? When I'm down there I usually stay at the Holiday Inn right next to Miramar off the 15 or I stay up near San Marcos area also off the 15.
A friend of mine who lives in Vista turned me on to a cool lil thursday night car meet up in the northern area... near Encinitas. I think its call Tacos & Tuners... https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tacos-Tuners/162259780458485?fref=ts
if you're near that area maybe we can meet there.... its not a bunch of ricers doing burnouts...believe me, me and my buddy are way too old for that crap. hahaha
Vz28 and TheStevo both beat me to this with Vz28 running Bilstiens with Eibach springs (I believe) and TheStevo running his with Kings Standard duty SSL front and SL rear. Both of them were nice enough to answer my questions so I could avoid making any rookie mistakes when putting it all together. I was really hoping to get it right the first time (hate TTY hardware).Okay, being the only person on the board that I know of with Bilsteins, you have to give a long detailed review of them compared to your FE3's. I believe they will be much more compliant but better controlled. Share!!
K-Mac, I talk to that guy every SEMA, send him all the feedback you can so he can fine tune his product!
These measurements were bothering me considering we should have about the same overall tire diameter. Any chance you measured from ground to fender instead of wheel lip to fender? If so my quick rough measurements are much closer (27 5/8 driver front, 26 3/4 driver rear, 27 3/4 passenger front, 27 1/4 passenger rear).I just went out and remeasured my set-up's ride height using Vz28's method. Same conditions as his other than my camber setting s are -1.7 all around, same wheels. Fronts both measured 27 3/4 inch and the rears both measured 27 inches.
