    WARNING! Hi Guys, finished my dash made from Carbon Fibre look plastic and it looks great, Just one problem, it expands in the heat, pull the car of of the garage to tidy it up again, and left it in the sun as it has been great weather over easter, looked at dash hour later between the S/Steel button screws the dash had expanded and raised up, I looked on in horror and pushed the car back in the garage, when it had cooled down it went back to orginal position, just thought I should let all know as you may want to change your dash, any thoughts ?

    Reae Coils

    Hi guys Just been setting up the rear of my sub-k up and Iam wondering when it comes to the SVA where do they jack the rear of the car up?Do they jack it up under the rear suspention arms that hold the springs?If they did that to mine on my last setting the spring will fall out of the upper cups.So I tentioned the springs and now my ride height is far to high any ideas?
