Hi, yea it was a great weekend all and all. Nice meeting you as well. The car is worse than it looked, upper and lower driver side a-arms, both junk, center bulk-head, junk, rack, cracked in back, both tie rods, and one spindle, and (2) bent shock shafts. So the work begins. There is no work (const, gc, specializing in residential remodels) in this market, so plenty of time, but not much cash. Hopefully we will be there in May. Thanks for the message, keep in touch. Joe1369
Joe it was nice meeting you last weekend.Sorry about how we had to meet.Now that you`ve had a chance to better look at the car how bad is it?And will you have it fixed for the May race?
When a shock passes 90 deg. the shock will loose its effectiveness. If the coilover is doing the same thing the spring rate will decline as it passes 90 deg. which is what i suspect is happening. The loss of both will definitely soften the whole package. Another thing is I think the by-pass shock is too small. You don't have as much piston area to work with and you are probably blowing right through the bump zone. Most cars run no more than 4" of ground clearance at bottom so you could probably gain some more rear travel also.
Don't know So Cal Fab but yes on the other. I am looking to find a shop or a person to which I can take my VW based cars for all kinds of repair, mod and maintenance work. Unfortunately I am also looking for someone legitemate and honest who actually knows what they are doing.
Hey Joe, Thanks. We were at the banquet and the more race, My Bro raced the Black Chenowith in Sportsman and got 4th place! not bad for his firt race!! You have a merry Christmas also, and have fun.
