Re: Coiled turqoise samurai

Thanks chaps :rockin:

Jordi - :hahaha: it used to be mine for a brief period last year. We had just taken the anti roll bar off to see if it could actually get anywhere, compared to my white sj its pityful, let alone the turqoise one!

Re: Coiled turqoise samurai

Today was the first offroad outing and excell it did. Its completely different to how a leaf sprung handles the offroad. I was a little concerned that on full flex it wouldnt have enough pressure on the ground to grip but i have a video showing otherwise! Couple of pics

Re: Coiled turqoise samurai

So, not an update but abit more info on mx5 calipers if anyones interested. Theres 2 types of 1.8 rear caliper from 1998 to 2005. A 251mm and a 276mm disc version. I have used a 251mm version without realising but its working better than any handbrake set up iv had before and better than my friends ...
