    Man what a hardcore build thread. I love following your EVO!
    Thanks man! Appreciate it....

    Hopefully all this work results in better performance on the track. My set up last year was really good but with a front diff and other suspension changes I'm hoping its better.

    Still working on a solution for the diff bolts. One of the issues is they loosen on their own and back out. Tried some techniques to solve that tonight on a scrap diff I have....

    - I removed close to the same amount of material added
    - I torture tested the fasteners, the welds penetrated and they arnt coming out took me a few tries to get the setting right.
    - The ring that sits in the groove isnt impeded in any way
    - The welds are below the flat surface on the outer edge
    - The case was not overheated, waited in between each weld to cool things down to the touch

    Not sure if this is the way to go.....

    After doing a little more research I have decided to try machining my diff. I have sent it out today to Transmission Dynamics in Bedford UK to have the case machined to accept larger bolts that will handle more stress. The turn around time I have been quoted was about 2 weeks so I will post up the results here. In the meantime this is what the case should look like when it returns.

    Good call I think it is much safer this way with the bolts backing out on their own.

    Loving this build. You are doing things carefully, with an eye toward longevity. Redundancy is a good thing too. If everyone had the sķill/patience you had when working on their vehicle, a lot more sweet rides would still be on the road!

    Cheers to a great evo build thread!

    Another quick update on my build thread....
    I now have two (major) items left to buy on this years list. New tires and wheels and a front swaybar.

    I decided this year to go with a more dedicated track tire. I originally thought of trying r888's but every year they seem to go up in price. With this year them being around the 300$ mark I decided to go for another brand.

    After looking around at reviews I decided to try out a federal tire... Yes federal makes crap passenger car tires HOWEVER in Europe and Asia their race tires are very highly rated and have great reviews. I still have my re-11's for damp conditions so I decided to pick up a set of 595rs-r's for dry conditions.

    They were really cheap and I should be able to have them here in a few weeks. Treadwear is 140 but everywhere I look says that they are even softer than that. With my new suspension set up the car should really stick!
