or maybe something for those track days,

Callaway C7R

I so wish i had the bankroll to own something like this. :D

ITs all just american crap with a racecar drivetrain.......Japs,itallians and germans are the only ones who know how to build cars

Any car that has been completely re-engineered and still stands today as being one of the fastest cars ever produced, gets my vote. :D 409km/hr only using 1.5bar!

I like Vettes, old Mustangs, Camaros, TVRs, Lotus, Venturi's, Jags... so may different automotive flavours :aroused:

"Automotive bigots?"... you missed my point.

If this was a yank forum, they'd be like this: "Theres a car auction in *Melbourne, Down Under*, or *Sydney, Australia*... with emphasis on what country it's in. I just don't see why every non-american in this world should be well versed in the names of their states. Try going onto GTP forums and saying you're from Queensland... :D

Back on topic, did Callaway get rid of that leaf spring live rear axel on any of those cars?

rezz,

the corvette has had IRS since the 60's. yes they did use leaf style springs but theywere mounted transversly.

if you are familiar with the old Jag rear ends (popular in the rod community) they look very similar but with the rather odd transverse leafs

Sorry about the bigot thing, was only a rev up :Oops:

...yeh the land of the hotdog...i here your point but most people know where Arizona is dont they??? Hell there was a battleship named after the place that was the victim of the one of the greatest naval defeats in history :)

Callaway did offer a Bilstein (in the earlier days used Koni) coil over upgrade along with a pretty serious Brembo brake upgrade. If the aftermarket can do a coil over conversion as a common upgrade, i find the factory's "pacakging" excuse perhaps a bit hard to swallow.

Remember the movie True Lies with Arnie, i remember Bill Paxton's line "the Vette gets 'em wet" :)

    • Yeah it was a little confusing as stream of consciousness. To be clear I’m referring to a failure in a NEO turbo where you have another MAP sensor or something similar teed with the OEM MAP sensor for whatever reason. 
    • Cheers for the feedback. Yeah I've already got the superpro outer adjustable bushes, been in for about a year now. Bought the inner non adjustable superpro bushes last week and planning to install this week/next week. I'm kinda set on going polyurethane path to help stiffen things up a bit and longevity. RE: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Yep, Hardrace and Cusco do them about $450-$500. Rubber bush.  Would have been the easier option.
    • I have this issue with my 08 v36 sedan that has only had 98 in it last 10 years, and Im pretty sure my mechanic puts k&n in when servicing. Could it really be that simple? I've been shopping around to get it fixed, but being so cold in Adelaide, it doesn't make the noise.
    • That's somewhat of a mixed message or confabulation of two different things. Point 1. Yes, it is generally a bad idea to tap anything into the FPR connection because when it goes wrong the lean condition is very destructive. No, it doesn't go wrong often, but when it does, it is usually because the ignorance of the failure mode is combined with sufficient general ignorance that the failure becomes more likely through ineptitude. Thus, it is generally easier to simply say "don't do it" than try to have a nuanced discussion. Point 2. The Neo's boost sensor "failure mode" should you tap into its connection and have that connection fail is not severe at all. But this is where the confabulation occurs, because you made it sound like tapping into the FPR on a Neo was not as bad. There wasn't any need to bring the Neo's boost sensor up as it was lacking in relevance, even with its previous mention in this thread. /pedant mode.
    • A few things to consider: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Many years ago I replaced all my bushings front and rear with superpro polyurethane bushings. Sure they've been fine. But the castor isn't adjustable and is slightly out, the camber adjustment bolts aren't the greatest and most secure way of adjusting them. If I were to do them again I'd probably just replace the arms with aftermarket ones. I used a 5 ton press to get everything out. The biggest pain is having a wide selection of metal pipe pieces that are strong enough to press things out with. The rear hub bushings gave me PTSD.
