Yeah, I believe ya... :up:I will make sure that we get hooked up to work on your car THIS WEEK!
80mm LOWER? Gotta be a typo dude - that means you're 3.14" lower than stock. You're now have 1.5" of ground clearance. Better hope there are no large acorns on 167th street on the way to your houseIn any event, I'm lower now by 80mm.

You know the wifey is back in town again... it was PERFECT Saturday morning but as I can see you had a date with a tube and a lathe :nanner2:

I'm sure you meant you now have 80mm of ground clearance (3.14") which is STILL very low but at least you can run over prone pop cans... :coolnana:
Well I suppose that's all relative. Those "crappy shocks and springs" (BTW, the springs are Eibach--the same brand used on many of the aftermarket units) don't have to work as hard to keep the car under control, as the CG gets closer to the ground... that may give the perception that they're not as crappy as you might thinkNow you've got a lower ride height and the same crappy shocks & springs.
10+ trackdays later and nothing gloomy and/or doomy yetLooks good Phil!
I know RT did this with his setup as well a while back. Maybe he can chime in in regards to his thoughts on the handling difference with the lower grooves.
ME-True, they didn't get it quite right on this car. A bit underspring'd and overshock'd. Wheels & tires a bit too big and heavy. Good for the bling, bad for the physics. Mine bottomed out badly on the street and track with the LSS suspension. My stock '68 Elan rode and handled better. Best money spent was on the Nitrons.
Guess it all depends on how hard you're driving it.
XTN,Is it not the case that the tube wall is thicker behind the existing grooves, and that you may have cut into an area that is not as thick? Do you think there is any chance that you have created a potential failure point?
