Might be worthwhile turning up to the Go Karting cruise and introducing yourself to some other people from the community.

I'm sure you will have a good day out and it would be good to see some SX4's getting involved.

Yooo
I was just trying to work out which company made the swift GTI :|

I'm up for whatever. Go karting is mad fun - altho I'll probably get smashed...I dont weight much so that might help. I wanna test out the the new swaybar on my sedan though :).

What follows is my usual ranting, whining and paranoia :roll:...

Might order some new springs tomorrow and get em installed maybe this sat or the next. Body roll IS what kills the handling now but at least the swaybar got rid of that damn understeer. The car handles way more neutral now :D. I'm guessing if I ever bother bumping up the brake performance the stiffer springs will make a hell of a difference especially since the front sometimes scrapes with the stock setup. I haven't noticed any scraping with the 17s though. I swear they must be heavy lol, braking isn't as good (still good tho) and the clutch is really high now. Maybe my driving style has just worn the crap out of it? I drive it pretty hard the majority of the time. Might have to check the manual or tell my mechanic to adjust it. I really know shitall about clutches. It only kicks in right at the very top now instead of halfway. 17s couldn't have made all that much of a difference though since the car now comes stock with 17s. Tomorrow I'll get Jaxx to fix up the alignment they did aswell coz its starting to pull to the left. I've only done 3k kms since I got em to put the new rims on.

I'm up for the karting, but probably won't race, screwed my back up again... :x

Shame as I used to race karts too. :(

But hey next time, I guess we'd better let boyracer and toxic pony know where we all are. I'll post a link to here on the meet thread.

Mine screwed from having too many people drive into my car. Every now and again it flairs up... At the moment it's giving me a fair bit of grief...Comes from driving so much at for work at the moment.

Can't wait for my new job. Normal hours and normal travelling.

lol, was kidding! (I was pretty tired out of it when I posted that crap I think)

Yeh but I still don't really wanna drop it though. I wanted the swaybar to get rid of that understeer and it did a great job of that at least at the speeds I've tested it at. How will it handle on crap roads with teh springs? I love driving this thing on dirt roads flatout. If I do decide to get em I'll try get em put on next sat. I just checked the PSI yesterday - on warm day after driving they were at 36, which is what JAXX had em at so I upped them to 38. Seemed to up the grip and response at the cost of comfort though ofcourse. I really need to test different pressures with these new rims n tyres.

I never even had sx4club stickers lol, you can't have both??

Oi I checked in with pedders aswell - they wanted $600 for springs, install and full alignment. I'm guessing its alot cheaper at suzitech (300 for springs anyway). Pedders didn't have any shocks available for the SX4 to though so what shocks did you get????

6am earlier?

hmm dunno, prob off a pulsar or mirage shocks
next time i have the wheels off ill check for numbers

hmmm id hold off on the springs (tho $600 IS cheap) and drop the rear psi to 36 and fronts at 38, drive for a week n see if u like... the lower pressure will let the sidewalls flex a bit more absorbing any understeer.

my 18's at 40F and 38R HUGE HUGE difference

Oi!!!

It aint that slow. I just drive it a bit slower on the road. Although I seem to remeber someone complaining that i was going a bit quick through the gorge. :wink:

What did you have in mind for tomorrow?

Mick thought you loved your car, then go and put that s**t in it.

I might be about, but might have to collect some seats in the morning. [-o<
