  1. look the thing with the open tracker bearing spring saddle is this: does not add harshness at all does make the ride smoother with harder springs does make the ride a lot smoother with normal springs never have to grease it etc. and can be rebuildable So yes it does make a good difference that you feel when unexpected, it's not a night and day difference but it's got a smoothness to it that is hard to pick but it's here, strangely enough i felt it more on the wet when the car leans it's a little more taut. I don't think it's a performance mod thou as I could not really get a chance to test it on the track and on the street you get locked up finding the limit of a well sorted old box falcon (sad hey)
  3. I use the opentracker ones, they use roller bearings, bliss, very smooth I have global west UCA and LCA both on bearings on the lower and Delrin (solid) on top, super pro on caster rods and sway bar and with 800pound springs and Koni the car is extremely smooth with no harshness at all, smoother than my mk6 GTI global west arms have added caster in them and have built in Shelby drop, they drop the top arm almost half inch more and no binding issues, it's a nice bit of kit, no fouling on anything
  4. yeah I remember talking to old mate DJ and asking him what was the secret behind the XE, his words were "people do't realise how light these things are and the cleveland made good power" thinking about it now yeah ... they were light!
  5. in all honesty the XE to me means more than the XY as I never seen the XY race but remember DJ fanging the XE around the track and that's what makes me hard, three images from Australiana will stick with me, DJ driving the wheels out of the XE, Glenn Seton EB falcon And the E30 M3 Out of those cars I'm glad I have the XE and still looking for a mint ED XR8 Sprint......they are getting harder and harder to find now
  6. we should do what the Supra boys did, list our cars for say 80k on carsales, as a joke the Supra boys listed all their RZ's on carsales for over 100k, one got sold for 98k the guy immediately bought another for 38k
  7. There is an xe 6cyl for over 20k on carsales, over 20k! Glad got my xe when I did, they will be worth up to 40k in 5 years time as or generation gets older and have more money
  8. for good dampers you can buy the Bilstein ones from the states, send them an email make sure you get the right ones! you can send them a pic of your current one and you will be right, they are $199 US, fucking good quality thou
  9. it will settle another half inch and it will be enough, when both wheels on ground check top ball joint clearance to the bump stop
  10. how light ? seems to have very little rev hang
  11. it seems to rev quickly and settle quickly, how heavy is the flywheel ?
  12. it will be extremely hard to remove the springs ..... make sure you're not doing what some people there tell you to do because the OE spring is extra long, just be careful
  13. It’s not timing as it only does it in first gear and your msd don’t have multiple gears it’s the result of big cam and not enough rpm for the load if you launch at say 4K it will be ok, what you’re doing now is masking it with lower PV have you tried to launch with 3.5k rpm and stay in it?
  14. regardless of gearbox the falcons need a 3.x:1 diff! unless you run a fucking burnout car where you probably want lower than 2.77 trust me! nobody every went back to under 3:1 diff gears once they tried it!
  15. this is not a bad cheap reliable turbo, add J pipe to stock manifold and exhaust for under 1k get EB/ED manifold bolted and front mount for under 1k all said and done add ECU and injectors for 2k spend another 1k on fuel system and other crap yeah you'll get there easy
