Does anybody have any experiences with coilovers and our crappy NC roads? I am looking at the stance gr+ or rce tarmacs but kind of leaning towards the stance's only because of the price.

 

I've got a set of Megan Racing coilovers (got em used for a song). I was running them with a 1/4" of preload and it was pretty uncomfortable, so this weekend I adjusted them back to zero and it's great. I'd recommend something without pillowball front mounts, as these roads make me wish the Megans used some sort of energy-absorbing top hats.

 

I would seriously avoid going for any sort of hardcore autox coilovers if you ever drive on 440 or 40 (... or downtown, or by the airport, or anywhere really).

 

edit: my lower back is fucked from rowing crew for 7 years so YMMV, but my advice stands.

so on my way back from Johnson on 64 I was making a left turn out of the auto park and a g35 sedan was going too slow for my liking. so i went into the slow lane and was in 2nd and just went. well.... i hear him rev up so i was like.... ok. red lined all my gears and was up to 100mph before i shut down. guy didnt gain an inch on me. at the next light he asked what my car was. kinda funny. so he wanted to go at the light. i dont like street racing. i have never launched my car. so i figured what the hell gotta do it once. reved up to about 4K and dropped it. apparently that is a crappy launch rpm? cause it was a really crappy launch. tired chirped and i was two cars back b/c of changing into second and stayed that way.

I was headed back east from Asheville yesterday after picking up the car, and saw a silver LGT sedan with wheels/exhaust and writing on the window (looked like from the track) headed west on 40 about mm 100. Would have waved but the windows were up. Was that any of you? It was early afternoon.

not sure if any of you are interested, but i am selling one of my toys.

 

 

I am selling it for $450 firm.

 

Specs:

 

Yugoslavian SKS 7.62 - 422c federally compliant

 

Replacement parts (some for fun, some for compliance reasons):

Stock - Tapco T-6 Adjustable w/ Boyonet Cutout - $89

TripleK 30rd Steel Magazine - $36

Zytel Gas Tube Assembly (all new) - $50

Bolt Carrier - $20

Spring Loaded Stainless Firing Pin - $35 (prevents slam fire)

Operating Rod - $7

Operating Rod Spring - $7

Gas Piston Stainless - $30

Gas Valve Stainless - $29

Leapers SKS Scope Mount - $35

Shell Deflector - $10

NcStar 3-9 zoom x 42 Scope - $47.95

Case - $19.99

Grenade Launcher style Muzzle Brake - $30

98% of the parts came from http://www.sksman.com so you can verify the pricing is accurate.

 

 

 

Total Value with parts: $630.94 (after tax and shipping it was more)

Asking Price: $450.00

 

 

Will require a valid NC pistol permit to purchase. Due to the lethality of this weapon we will go through an FFL dealership where your background will be checked. This puppy can fire as fast as you can pull the trigger and with 30rd mags the last thing I want is to see someone in the news with this firearm.

 

 

 

 

Here are his original pix he sent me:

I am not able to spend the money now. That is a very nice rifle though. You should have no problem getting what you are asking.

 

too bad man. it is a beauty. I could take 200 now and 250 in a month. this weekend i was going to go put it at younggunsinc near me on consignment to see if it sells. the problem there is, to make it worth while i only want to sell it for 450 and the shop takes 50 of that. booo.
