BMR Trailing Arms

Trying to get the power transferred to the road and after lighting the fire on some practice launches there is substantial wheel hop. I called Kyle at BMR and he sent me outer trailing arms TCA 027, spherical, and TA bushings.

Put the car up on the rack, pulled the wheels, removed the weak TA and bushings with some help from SSmike in the DIY section. Installed the new BMR bushings, 006, and trailing arms in 1 hour.

This simple mod is essential for these cars and it makes a world of difference. After a few launches and high speed accelerations the power is put to the pavement and the car is more manageable.

In a few weeks I will get a cradle kit to firm up her rear.

Thanks Kyle!

Headed to a local track next Friday for some 1/8th mile runs.

Clutch Reservoir

Finally got around to adding a clutch reservoir, Stage 1 from JDP. I was unable to get the line off the firewall, it is way back there and could not get the big paws in the tight spot. Got a line splice and clamped it all together, easy day and a piece of mind.
