Competed at a local Khanacross on Sunday

Post by Gannon » Mon Jul 07, 2014 9:16 pm

Finally finished my RX Turbo and entered in an event

Need firmer front springs (standard Liberty in there at the moment)

Didnt get a place overall, but come 3rd out of 39 on this particular lap.

Awesome mate. The RX is looking great.

Is it springs or roll bar that needs upgrading. I would e thought EJ springs would've been plenty stiff for what you want!

Also, what's the whine sound? 2nd gear?

How good are 4wd power slides :twisted:

The Liberty springs in it are 132lb, RX turbo were 157lb, WRX are 163lb
King replacements are 200lb but this might be too firm

The wagon springs in the rear might be too firm at 196lb, Id be better with something about the 170lb mark

Eventually I want to fit the Gen3 Bilstiens I have into it

I'll leave the swaybars as is because upgrading them is pointless if the springs arent right.

Interesting, I thought the lib ones would've been heavier than that!

So RX or WRX springs will be the ones you'll go with?

I'm keen to see the gen III rear shock/spring setup in the L. What's the advantage of this anyway? I've thought about it in terms of a higher rated shock and possibly spring for my offroading requirements but that's been as far as I got with it!
