Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Yes evo x wheels. And he did a side exit exhaust.
Not sure if I'm allowed to use it or not.

Just as a heads up the car has some things wrong that weren't described but also came with a lot that wasn't mentioned.

And since I'm OCD and the car isn't where I know I want it to be. Ive made the choice to take some time and fix the things that are bothering me now vs later.

My wife doesn't agree as "it's a race car" most of its cosmetic but still I know myself well enough that it'll always bother me if I don't address it. She says I'm not getting any younger and to just start racing. Anyrate.

So for now I'm just having the red car put back together and I'll do HPDE event this year with it as is.
(Am having the Boston diff supports added, rm sway bars installed, rest of bobbys G suspension installed)

But then calling it done for the year on that car

A couple things so far. But it is, what it is, but until I get a day off (next sunday) to really get a full day of investigating I'm going to refrain from making statements as I truly don't know just how bad somethings are vs do they just look bad.

But 1 particular no questions are the evo x rims and tires supposed to have only 1500 miles on them.... must have all been snow

Will say this. I really missed having a white car and she looks pretty in the garage.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Well just a quick update on this car. Dsm revival started work on my car.

Ordered up slim line fan, bought a sparco passenger seat bracket for $40, we'll see how high it puts my race seat. If it's to bad for $40... who really cares, couldn't pass it up for the price. But if it works then I'll buy a driverside one. (I have 4 race seats anyways, long story if I haven't shared) this also allows me to use the stock seat belts or a harness bar till the white cars done.

Is it bad that I keep thinking I may just build 2 cars. Lol. My eldest will be 16 in 4yrs. Maybe keep this car and have a car for the kids to come do HPDE events with me.

Wife wasn't to thrilled when I suggested it the other night though

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

So went to see the car last friday. Couple thing came up

1)need a new clutch - should in stay 2600 or go twin or triple? I've read random threads where people say twin/triple are easier on the car I have no experience in them what so ever. But anything that will help a motor that's going to be used continously is fine by me...open to opinions as I always thought they were just to handle higher hp/tq. I know john freund uses a QM twin.
-halo seats and sparco seat bracket didn't work would have been fine if I didn't have the Halo section but the Halo sticks out the window, but at least Jacob who's doing the work said he'd do the seat mod for $100 so that's going to get done on my red car.
-also suggested I get another pusher fan and remove the stock one. As he showed me in there current clocked position my 90 degree couple is rubbing on thr motor mount which put a hole in it. And if he clocks it any more it then hits the stock fan which again would tear up the coupler. So we're doing a 2nd fan and then some duct work to help direct air.

Edit: 2nd fan showed up - 4/18/18 only it was supposed to go to the shop not my house. Shipping address is listed as the shop but they still sent it to my house....rawr

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

I wouldn't go multi-disk unless you're making north of 600whp. In factory applications, they work great, but I've had a couple in my DSM and I hated them. Lots of chatter, grabby engagement, etc. The best clutch I ever had was in there when I sold it, a South Bend with the street Kevlar disk. Perfect engagement, light action, smooth.
