I installed my new Tanabe Drift Spec parts (traction rods, toe control rods) last weekend and got an alignment at West End in Torrance. What a difference! I’m not sure how they will react when I’m driving hard, but on public roads, they stiffen up the chassis quite drastically.

Something that I noticed lately was my car feeling boost laggy and the power didn’t feel as good as it should. I changed my oil and spark plugs tonight, and it made a world of difference. Actually, the spark plugs made the difference. I’ve been using Blitz iridium plugs for the past year now, mostly because I can feel the biggest difference when I use them, compared to other types of spark plugs. Plus they are easily available (local) for SR applications. Anyway, I’m glad my car doesn’t feel crappy anymore. I lost track of when I changed my plugs last, and I guess they were due. I thought my gutless engine was another thing I had to put up with! Haha.

Next thing to do is change my transmission fluid and my LSD fluid. And try to figure out why my car isn’t boosting at what I set it to. Other than that… I’m almost ready for Drift Showoff!
