Yeah, coilovers on a 'street car' aren't very good, unless you have the cash to buy some very nice ones (which usually are worth more than an FC).

I never had a reason to go further than AGX/RB on my FC. Slayed the Dragon very well, and rode through town just the same.

Correct, however BC offers good quality at competitive prices. That and they are able to be rebuilt (if needed) here in the US.

And I love my set-up too, does all I've ever needed it do.

It has been a long while, guess I'll share what little I've done

Aside from installing an LRB Speed defrost vent, I've simply kept her clean, gassed-up, and ready to go. If you have one of these vents and you notice the hardware is different than what's supplied. . that's because I really didn't care for the look of the cap screws so I replaced them with smoother button heads


There was a good turnout last weekend at the cars & coffee in Franklin, TN. Here's a couple nice pics an individual took of my car.

Wow! It's been quite a journey.

Glad to see everything sorted out now though. Did you ever get a actual mode of failure for the Sprint RE?

Your car is gorgeous! I'm not a huge fan of red (and keep in mind, mine is red), but I must say your car is definitely worth a second, and third look.

YES! yes it has! I'm not sure what came first or what the cause was but there was also damage to the pin on the backside of the ECU connector, literally burned like a blown fuse. It had to be sent off to Haltech for repair (and on my dime, which I thought was dumb but oh well. . . I just wanted this over). The harness was returned with no problem found. Ludwig's prediction was that it was ground related.

The latest addition to the car is a hard to find Draw-Tite trailer hitch which has a removable ball mount unlike the Curt that was on it previously. I'm really liking the discreet look of this one.

Here's the Curt I had for the longest time:


and the Draw-Tite:


Now to find a ball mount for it. . I got Reece branded one from DJ but unfortunately it's a loose fit. They are similar in design but I think the Draw-Tite version is slightly wider. I'm actually considering modifying this one to accept a 1-1/4" square mount which is mush easier to find.

Damn. Oh well, we tried!
