FWIW my Nautic S70 experienced similar symptoms when I needed to replace my control arms.

This is random but didn't you post a video of you flying around the corner when you put new control arms in?

just wish there was a black sc901 for my 850...

Paint one?  That's what I'm gonna do eventually.  I need to find someone to make new decals to replace all the text I'll have to paint over, though.  That thing has too many buttons to remember what they all do lol.

What was worn on the control arms? Bushings at the frame? My control arms, oem lemforders, aren't too old and obviously don't have many miles on them... they are abused though sitting super low.

Bushings yes, but I believe the biggest issue was the ball joints for me. The front end had a mind of it's own over uneven surfaces and bumps/cracks. It also rattled quite a bit.

Yes, I just watched that a day or two ago for the first time in 3 years lol. That was a great day as I'd needed to replace them for about a month at that point.

That's a good start...

the AA exhaust is a great sounding street exhaust.

Trying to drop the oil pan.  This job sucks.

Took my 99 R to the dragstrip yesterday... monumental disappointment. Pulls like a freight train thru 1st and 2nd, but in 3rd gear the car seems to be chugging slightly under WOT, and when I hit 4th the car just shuts down like someone shut the key off (I've had issues with WOT in 4th gear from the get go ever since I did the manual swap). I did notice that as the evening progressed and it cooled down 8 degrees the 4th gear issue seemed to get better, but never went away. Was about 82 degrees when I started, cooled down to about 74 toward the end of the night.

Hilton is supposed to be coming to MI for a group dyno tune session end of this summer, early fall... I've heard great things about them. So... plans for the 99 VR before then are... Get my AWD back in so I don't get such pathetic 60 ft times (consistently 2.5 sec, zero traction with my street tires and my car being FWD)... possibly a bigger intercooler or a maybe a FMIC... catless... then Hilton tune. I couldn't get out of the 15s with my car :angry:. Hoping for low 14s... maybe high 13s after all that is done.

Actually, as I was typing this it occurred to me that maybe my stock intercooler is slightly plugged. My old engine was using a lot of oil... so maybe a new intercooler or even try to wash out the old will fix a lot of this??

There's your problem...

ever watched a freight train go 0-60? Takes about 30 minutes.

Raced the car yesterday.  Way too hot as the track was in the low 90's, and with runs only being 50 seconds or so, you are always in the heat.  Spraying the tires after the first run.

I won, but only because I was the only one in the class to show up. :cool:
