I'm really happy with the way the car sounds now. Has a nice mean rumble to it. The new clutch works amazing as well! Now Becca just needs to get some practice behind the wheel with it so she can start sliding at events!
Now on to some more recent things. It's looking like my knuckles will be shipping out any day now (fingers crossed it's for real this time) however the PBM inner tie rods are anyones guess. If the knuckles arrive I'll be in need of a longer tie rod setup. After some quick researching I found my answer. 2003-2008 Maxima inner tie rods are 13.3" long compared to my current S14 length tie rods which are 11.4" long. Right there is a difference of 2" which I'm predicting I will need. GKtech thought that with the Zero Ackerman arms I would need 20mm of length give or take. For those of you who don't know mm to inch conversions 20mm is just under an inch, .87 to be exact. The reason I went with something that's 2" is because I moved my front track out 1.5" so I'll be needing all 2" of extra length the tie rods offer.
I'm sure most of you by now have seen the commercial or know about the site, which I have a million times, but this was my first time to actually try it out. RockAuto.com, I've heard people say its great but with the commercials being so ridiculous and cheesy I always figured it was a joke. Well, i found out first hand its fucking awesome! The local parts store wanted $80 per tie rod for Moog brand inners. RockAuto had them listed for $37 a piece for the same Moog brand. So I went ahead and ordered from them. The shipping was stupid fast and it was all around a very pleasant experience. Since then I've also orderd brakes for my Sequoia and my current savings with everything I've ordered from them is at $320!
