i've been slowly tinkering with what was orignally suppose to be my "daily driver" isn't that always how it goes.
it's an 83 hatch..wait..with t-tops
it has a high hp, carbed motor with the t-5, and 8.8 with 3.55s and the t-lok.
as soon as i got it i threw in some springs from a 95 and cut a coil all around and slapped on some pony wheels with 225 up front and 245s out back.
subframe connectors, a k member brace (MM), and a 1 1/4 front swaybar were next along with the addition of a 4pt roll bar for even more stiffness..
i also have jacking rails and some bars to run between those and the SF connectors as well waiting to go on.
the car has been raced up at loudon International speedway, nh and it was a blast.. the car handled very well through the corners , and with the power on hand was just laying a beating to some of the much more expensive and "pretty" cars as i like to call them (i'm in black and orange primer).
the main problem i have is brakes... need more but do NOT want the 5-lug swap. i've owned sn95s and i've always said someday i want the 4-lug pony's.. well i have them, love them, and have no plans to get rid of them..which i know puts me in a performace hault at some point.
i have some 89calipers with the ss piston upgrade, along with spindles, bigger rotors, and the master cyl to go with it just waiting to go on.
i was thinking some hawk pads, and MM offers a high performace shoe that is suppose to be really good that i was going to throw on as well..
question is.. do i need the 89 master cyl??
the plan down the road is for some better springs and definately some shocks and a bumpsteer kit. with the stock cc plates i have been able to get between a -1 and -1.5 degrees of camber so i havn't upgraded as of yet.
anyone's opinion on the setup and possibly if i am maximizing the current brake setup... i was reading i could swap disks in the rear as well..figured i'd try the HP shoes from MM first..
