i guess that explains why your kouki is so thrashedbrizanden wrote:what is this "brakes" you speak of. i heard rumors of a pedal that makes you slow down and is supposivly called a brake pedal, but idk when i was taught to drive i was told one thing. my dad pointed to the pedal on the right and said "this is the go fast pedal, you dont need nothin else".
You are correct, it's the stock one.I'm grabbing a Mishimoto one, I found one local for $200.Only $50 more than what I'm being charged for a OEM replacement one.White Comet wrote:i'm guessing stock
any suspension/ handling mods coming razi? and i don't remember but if you havent upgraded your brakes yet, i would next
Yeah I'll probably show up to meets now. Being boosted makes up for looking stock .Also, maybe it wasn't my clutch that was slipping, maybe I really was flying up those revs in full boost. I'll have to check it out again.spooled240 wrote:looks good razi! Now I expect you to show up at some of our meets, so far I'm the only ka-t or at least boosted s-chassis at most/all of them lol
+1 for the clutch, the stocker will probably hold nice with your 8 psi but if you start heating it up with launching and stuff it can begin to start slipping. At 10 psi, my clutch held fine for DD but once I started doing hard launches at the drag strip it started slipping like a mofo. But again, you should be fine if the clutch is still in good condish.

same order as me too, even tthough im an SRian but i have an excuse..my t25 has a small amount of shaft play and i dont wanna replace it later, so suspension will wait til the end of the yearspooled240 wrote:

i agree with you 100% but for DD, the stock stuff was good for the time being and it was all in good working order. No joke, I was only driving about 24-30 miles a week! But I eventually upgraded the springs, some bushings, sway bars, q45 brakes and a vlsd so i'm goodWhite Comet wrote:imo its better to prepare the rest of the car for power by making sure it'll corner and stop
on a side note, if you want the stock ka to feel fast buy an NX1600. back when i bought my nx, i was going somewhere with my friend in his s14 and thought it felt fast he looked at me and was like "ummm this is 1/4 throttle "
LOL wtf like a big rig? does your turbo whistle pretty loud?Razi wrote: I get weird looks now, since my car makes a PSH sound.I think one guy thought I had air brakes.
Yeah like a big rig LMFAO.spooled240 wrote:LOL wtf like a big rig? does your turbo whistle pretty loud?
The first time I heard my turbo whistle I....JIZZED... IN.... MY PANTS..
No clue, it says Xenon Plasma White 8000k.spooled240 wrote:lol i know right?
are you using xenon HID bulbs? or just xenon-filled bulbs?
Yeah I didn't want to relocate it, so a Miata battery was used instead.S13k wrote:I like it a lot, also nice adjustment you did with the batt. putting it sideways instead of relocating it
Wow good eye.Yep it's for the CA18, it barely clears it with my Nismo motor mounts.Maybe 1/4th of an inch clearance from the fuel rail plastic cover thingy, and the strut bar.adrians_s13 wrote:btw, your front strut bar looks like it was for the CA18... I'm surprised it clears your KA. I tried a CA18 front bar, and it wouldn't clear my valve cover on my SR.
Yeah that's what I heard. I hope I don't blind people like crazy with these bulbs. If I do, I'm taking them out.spooled240 wrote:i dunno what s13's are H3? if it's an H3 bulb then it should be plug and play right?
