  1. Recently a very reputable engine machinist published his video about all good known cylinder cracking issue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enNZGvjc3SU Translation in 1 sentence: MLS head gaskets have a steel ring between layers 2:53 on video, that thickens the gasket for 13/100 mm. This creates extensive stress to cast iron part of the liner and stuff happens. His advice is using the gasket that is equally thick (custom cnc made copper?)
  2. Hi! I did the wheel alignment last week on all 3 cars, caster angle was in a range 2°25'-2°28' with stock control arms Please share your real world wheel alignment values, since appropriate range is 2-4 degrees I'm considering pressing the bushings backside, or installing the kalphenke upper strut plates, or both. Do you have any evidence increasing the caster to 4-6 degrees, and how does that alters the handling and steering?

    Could you please post the part numbers of those ceramic pads, otherwise it seems like there are not many options for replacement rather then oem
  4. Last time used thin metal handsaw, before tried red hot kitchen knife, both works well, knife melts that plastic slowly as it has fiberglass
  5. Agree on re-soldering isnt a lifetime solution. I used Ag3Sn97 and it holded for 5 years, but now its cracked again

    Thanks! They are somehow cool, somehow stupid. Acceptable on timeattack monsters, but would also be sweet on swedemetal if trimmed correctly with good taste? Imo the best receipt for our vagon's headlight is taking old jewels, new lenses and morimoto hids.

    Do you know anything about that extraordinary unit on the right? Owner's FB or IG account? Would love to see the whole bodywork. Besides, what is the right keyword searching these flaps on corners of front bumper?
  8. With some minor cutting, those cans could be hidden beneath windshield plastic, near cabin filter for passenger side, and side by side with fuse box for driver
  9. This is the worst location of the nitrogen reservoirs, you are constantly cooking them. I used my the same way until got recommendation by Thomas from TME Sweden, when ordered springs for ohlins road kit. That was the first thing he mentioned when discussed its adjustments and shoch damper settings

  11. You mean exhaust manifold heatshield or what?
  12. that white bushing seems to be teflon or something else from ptfe family? if so, it could live on as a dry lubricant without any additional grease. maybe the inner sleeve should be made of inox or phosphor bronze?
