KA's are great for lower HP drifting. When you want to get around 220 HP then you'll want an SR but try the KA man Smile

Update on the 240.

I got the car home and gave it a good clean, inside and out and took it for a little test. Engine pulls fine, didn't miss a beat. But the springs, oh no. It was very unstable. I took a look and found out straight away, they had been cut. I don't like cut springs at all. I didn't have any adjustables to put on there so they had to do. I drove it to a friends garage to see if he could look over it, he just so happened to be installing coils on a 240. I asked for the orignals and I installed them. The car rides pretty high, but it feels better so that's the main point.

Then yesterday I got a call saying that a few 240's had been found in the local junk yard. I decided to take the Mustang, it's nicer to be seen in that rather than the 240. We got there and to cut a long story short, I bought a set of Tein adjustable coils, Godspeed adjustable toe arms and Godspeed camber arms. Got that pretty cheap, then I got a nice set of Godspeed sway bars and an Ultra Racing front arm brace and a Cusco strut brace. All for dirt cheap, don't know when they're going to be installed.

Also picked up another KA24, don't even know why. It was cheap enough so I guessed why not. Might run the engine the car has no until it breaks and then put the new one in and turbo it, we'll see anyway.

So I went on KSport's website this afternoon just to look at all the suspensions they have that I could never afford. This has become a routine, I go on the internet and look at parts I wish I could buy for my PS13. So I was glazing through their website, looking at the roll bars, and the coilovers, when I saw a sale they had going on. So naturally I click on it, expecting some stupid little sale they have going on, but I'd be damned. The kit had a set of fully adjustable CNS210-KP Ksport Kontrol Pro Damper System Coilovers for a 1989-1994 Nissan S13. The kit also had a set of Sport Spec Roll Bars that were semi-adjustable, and a chassis reinforcement kit. All that for 1/3 the regular price. I couldn't hold back from the killer deal. Plus the fact that the PS13 is on cut springs right now made it even better. So I bought that straight from their website and it said it should be here tomorrow, Thursday at the latest. That's also the benefit of Ksport, their not too far away.

I am going to probably sell the chassis reinforcement due to the fact that I recently bought a full ASD roll cage off another guy, so I wont be needing more support, it will just be adding weight to have both. I'll see when I can install the cage. Work has been a little hectic lately, so I haven't had much time to keep you guys updated. But don't worry, I haven't had any time to work on the car so your not missing much ;)I'll be sure to update you guys when my Ksport package comes in. Stay in touch!

Cut springs suck bawls....lol. Had a friend of mine irl that cut the springs on his Olds Cutlass Calais. Thats not one of the OG baller Cutlasses, but one of the ones like the pic below. He cut too much and that thing would beat your spine to a pulp. Was like riding 50mph in a little red wagon, lol.

(Wrote by Cougar) I met up with Andy today and we were discussing cars and other shit. He told me he got his coils in, a set of K Sport adjustables, awesome! I joked to him about him still running cut springs. We both were moaning about never being able to work on our cars and things, then he came up with a sick idea. Why don't we rent a garage, or even a lockup or something. We already have tools and everything, we just don't have a place to do anything. I went for the idea and we both went on the lookout for a garage space. Wasn't long before we found a nice lock up. Fairly decent size, enough room for 3-4 cars, maybe 5 at a push. It's even got a lift in there. We called the guy that owned it and we settled on a monthly payment on it. That was it. We now have our own Tandem Inc HQ!

(Written by Falken) So I got up early the following day to get the new suspension parts installed on the car. I took the keys off the counter, went into the garage, looked at both the cars sitting there pretty, then took off in the PS13 to go to the garage/shop me and Louis recently rented. I'm going to be storing the E36 there as well so its out of my personal garage out of the way. I didn't run into any traffic really on the way there due to it being 5:45 AM and most business goers don't hit the road till 7:00.

(Written by Falken) So when I got to the shop that's located just across town, I got the suspension packages out of the trunk and back seat, and put it in the shop. I then pulled the PS13 into the garage onto the lift. I got the coilovers and roll bars out of the packaging, and began. I won't bore you with how I installed them, because the time that I took putting them on mostly consisted of mother f***** and you son of a b****. So I'll just leave that part out for the best of both us Smile So it was nearly 12:30 when I had got them all installed. So I backed the car off the lift, put it in N still running, and ran off to get a cold one in the fridge. I then got back in the car, threw it in 1st, and went off. I was just going to cruise through the back streets of LA to see how the new suspension feels under the car. So I was cruising, feeling refreshed as the breeze came through the cars open windows, when I heard the scream of a very distinguished V8..to what sounded very much like a 5.0. So I look in my rear view mirror, to find Louis smiling from ear to ear right behind me. So I pull over, as does he. "Where ya goin!" he says. I reply "Just out for a cruise with the new suspension is all, you?". "Just went over to the shop to see if you were there when I saw you down the road. You up for some lunch over at the Strip?" he says. I agree, and we take off, Mustang and PS13, over to the local diner to have a nice meal.
