Whiteline camber bolts went back in, got an alignment, and bled brakes and clutch.

-3.6 camber in front, rear camber is what it is because I can only change it in 0.5 degree increments with the UCA, still should work well.

Is this too much lean? I feel like sway bars are in order.

Can you post up some more pics that show how you routed the fuel line? Looks like you came up with a different way to do it that keeps it further away from the engine.

Good eye for detail!


I did not like the suggested routing around the abs unit for the long fuel line so I routed it under the abs unit. First, I put some expandable braided sleeving on the fuel line, then wiggled the line through. No rubbing anywhere as far as I can tell but when I change wheels for the track, I will pull the wheel liner and see if I can add a rubber loop clamp to hold the line further.

Looks great, thank you so much for the additional pics. Great job routing it, and that nylon sheath looks like it'll add another layer of protection from abrasion/friction.

I'm still not totally content with mine that's using the suggested/default routing, but I went for a drive today and then popped the hood and touched the line at it's closest point to the engine, and it didn't even feel warm/hot to the touch. I still might put a reflective gold jacket around it for peace of mind.

Thanks again.

Installed Hotchkis 25mm front sway bar, Hotchkis 19mm rear sway bar, and Hotchkis rear endlinks. I have the front sway bar on the soft setting, and the rear on the second soft setting. Aimed for a 3/8" rake with the right side a bit taller than the left side to account for drivers weight, pinch weld heights:
Code:
4.66    4.52
5.02    4.88
Changed the transmission fluid while the whole car was up on platforms (10,069 miles).

Pulled the fender liner to see if the flex fuel line was rubbing anywhere. Did not notice anything problematic but secured the line with a p-clamp just in case it moves too much during hpde.

Never heard the squeak again, something random, I guess. I will check all the nuts and bolts under the car just in case before I head out to MSR Cresson.

Could it have been your pads, or was it not that kind of squeak? I noticed you and Joe were both making a little noise on decel when they brought yall into the hot pits.
