Just read the whole thing. Congrats on the win @ Daytona, War Eagle, and how in the hell do you keep up with all of the parts, and fasteners during a tear down and rebuild?

I get lost sometimes when just doing one of my dirt bikes. Any tips from the motorsport crew?

@ APR:

Is APR going to bring these awesome (I guess) "Performance Friction" two-piece rotors back?
They were selling them some time ago if I remember correctly.

We don't have plans to offer this item. It's rather complicated to make and not ideal for most scenarios. It's one of those situations where this is the best we could do and still be within the league rules. It would also require sending out your OEM brake calipers for machining, so that means down time for you.

Adjustable swaybar endlinks for the rear APR sway bar once it's installed.

Are ^^^^ these available (or the source from which they were created) ? Sorry if the response will be "search", but I'm already 5 minutes past my lunch break and about to get in trouble.

Thanks in advance.

Which APR GTI was it that crashed, I think last year, had very heavy damage to the front end? Was that the one that got turned into a paintball target?

Also, what happened to the GLI at COTA?

Yeah, I've seen those. But these look like they have the potential to be about half the cost of the Whiteline deal. I'm just making sure I've exhausted every option before dropping huge coin on the Whiteline links.

Thanks for confirming the info though.

All you want is Heim Joints, and grade 5 threaded rod, cut it to the length you need and thread the joints on good to go. My jeep had a Currie Anti Rock front sway setup that utlized Heims, also people use to make there own links for the sway bars in the rear with the same type of joints and rod end. Throw on some white lithium grease here and there to keep things quite and clean.

Not sure if Currie Enterprises Heim joints are more or less then Whiteline or too big but always a vendor to check out.
