    I still don't understand why you don't run even a small rear sway bar. Oh well lol. Nice brakes. Those tires are bad ass.

    I'll tell you right now...your going to love the A048's...

    I got 5K miles on mine...bought them used...and they still have a crap load of life in them...

    I had to buy another set to play with when I get them down to the cords...


    Lets just say sick grip....and they are the stock tires of the Elise...

    they are on the hatch already...


    but the goodrige lines leak like a civ. i can't stop the drip.

    i'm going to have to pull them, and like tripple teflon the fuck out of all the junctions tomorrow.

    pain in the balls.

    Is that really a wise idea? They are leaking for a reason... And brakes are high pressure... Do you really want to risk your life on some teflon tape/paste?

    EDIT: And IIRC, brake fluid will eat through Teflon tape, and i believe teflon paste as well.

    You've just got bad luck man. My Goodridge lines have held up really well over the years.

    Nice setup! Gotta love that treadwear rating. :)

    Aftermarket anything never fits right. If it's ALL aftermarket stuff by the same company, it fits, throw one other company in the mix and everything gets fucked.

    Ya know B... NOBODY has as many problems as you do... Either EVERYTHING you buy is defective... Or maybe your just... overinstalling or misinstalling it?

    i'm done.
    i got my emissions notice for the hatch. due 8/10.

    no way in hell is this thing going to be road ready by then.

    90% sure i'm parting it out. i'll get more for it that way. unless someone wants to come pick it up for 7.5k cash....
