On the 13th, I went to Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, MI to drive the Colt. It did pretty well with the new suspension and repairs/upgrades. For some reason my phone wasn’t picking up lap times, but I got some video with the dash camera and a GoPro inside. It was a lot of fun!
It still needs to go lower, but it’s handling a lot better.
I installed MR2 strut inserts in the front, dropping it 1.75″ in the front. I put the only shocks I could find in the rear, getting rid of the bouncy feeling. All new pads, rotors, shoes for the brakes, plus some venting for the rotors.
I also installed a pair of BMW e36 (?) camber plates in the front. I had to drill holes in the strut tower and oversize the sleeve in the hat for the mr2 struts, but they’re in and functioning.
The Colt weighs 2,180Lbs
The whole rig weighs 14,100Lbs. She’s heavy.
