These days I'm really not too sure. Previously you could only send/receive PMs if paid up and couldn't see some of the for sale stuff, but you'd really need to ask a non paid up Member if they know...

I wonder if it might be worth a call to Arnside Motorsport because they routinely turn regular Xs into rally cars.

Btw, the X never had a spare wheel. What you need is the wheel well shaped foam...

Surely it's easy to see how £75k can be spent pretty easily - especially on an Evo lol

It might be different if the OP was asking for that kind of money, but he's not, nor anything like that...

Gran Sport Racing (or should that be Grand?)

See here - does that seem plausible?

The V5C for my X RS has "..." for Type Approval number". Does that imply that it does not have Whole European Type Approval?

Anyone out there with a X that's still on original OE units would really benefit from a set of these. My only possible quibble when I had them on one of my Xs was a slight increase in noise...

I think you've taken them past their capability/patience threshold. Doesn't Neverneverman still do number plates?

Perhaps I didn't explain myself especially well in earlier posts. With the car jacked up (both sides together) the helper springs are fully unwound. And therefore, of course, they are necessary...

Looks like you trying to "have your cake and eat it". Any car that's optimised for regular road use probably won't be great on track, and vice versa.

Whatever route you decide to take, try to work...

All good points - thank you.

Further delving has identified that I'm running with rear rides heights (and quite possibly fronts too) that are 20mm lower than the coilover manufacturer...

Is it possible that the SRS light will still come on, even if a system fault has been fixed or worked around, until the fault code has been cleared from the ecu?

Or might it be even simpler to slide the bump stop down the damper piston rod as far as it will go and then see how far it gets pushed back up?

Something else that I hadn't expected and therefore...

Thanks Clive - very helpful.

So, in the case of an Evo X (rear) the motion ratio is actually close to 1 because the spring centreline and bottom arm outer ball joint fixing point intersect (since...

That sounds like a good call. Most likely the AFS issue is present too, but brakes are somewhat more important!

Spring motion ratio - how to calculate?

I think I'm using the correct term ie motion ratio, but what I'm interested in is how do you work out effective suspension spring rates.

Is it derived from length of the suspension arm from its...

This is a new one on me, and I've had several of my past Xs driven fairly hard on track.

I'd be almost certain it's nothing to worry about, but maybe worth checking that all seems well with the...

Rear.

On reflection, you're right about the helper. There's certainly sufficient threaded section to permit it's removal, but I now realise that the ride height would either be too high or, as you...
