Re: Need advice (3WheelGTi)

why suspension first? since your car is basically an air pump and the more "in and out" action you can get (im talking about intake and exhaust, people) why wouldnt your first mod be intake and exhaust? then handling and such???
i can kinda see where you're coming from that i'd like to make my car handle before i make it so fast i can't control it
but i was just wondering...
edit (i say "suspension first" but i mean second since naturally i think that you'd get the car in tip top shape (making it reliable and such) before your first performance mod)

you make the chassis as stiff as possible and use an agressive suspenion setup for handling. You can go faster with a small motored good handling car than you can with a big motor poor handling car.

Re: Need advice (Clone_number2)

I've done quite a few mods to my car, and the one that made the most difference was the upgraded suspension. Of course, you need to make the car reliable first. Nothing will make you more crazy than spending a ****e load of cash on a car, and then have it not start up in the morning. It's maddening. Also, don't forget about tires - include them while upgrading the suspension.
As for the engine - an aftermarket cam will really wake it up. It's a noticeble difference, especially above 4000 rpms. Good luck
