TO TUB OR NOT TO TUBthat is the question

i wish this one didnt also......
this has s13 coilovers(turned 45 degrees to adjust castor/camber), s14 lca's, s15 knuckles
rear s14 cradle, r33 hubs, s14 rear shocks with coilover spring and fd tops
he also "moved the 13b engine forward so that the weight distribution was better suited to drift"

correct me if i am wrong, there is nothing overly wrong with the fd suspension set up? why would he go to all that effort and work to change to silvia gear?

Anyone got build links for flaming?

Fuse boxes and all that are easy to work out once you have the metal in there.
Personally If you are building up a track only car from a shell for drift I don't see why you wouldn't. Don't forget to hammer the hell out of the rear part of the arch / firewall as well too tho cos even with 7 deg of caster and a 9J -2 on a 35mm longer LCA I still had to clearance the firewall side of the arch with a hammer.
PS I don't know much about FD suspension vs Silvia when it comes to tuning but having owned both the FD drifted like shit...

would still like to see how people are doing it with trailer guards.

I really don't see the point. Why not just run 8.5 or 9 +25 fronts and run LCA's as long as U want to get the width u want. Tub clearance will never be an issue. Job done.

Be good if u could tub the whole front and rear as wheel.
