    How do you see how much travel you've used with a coil shock

    I don't think you do?

    Groomsmen's Higonokamis completed.

    I went with the vice press stamp technique, took a bit of fiddling to get each one right by releasing the vice and repositioning the back end of each stamp so as to sort of come at it from different angles and ensure a good press. I foolishly started with my double barrel named mates one first and you can see it was by far the fiddliest but overall I adopted a sort of wabi-sabi strategy and didn't get too upset over the imperfect alignment.

    I reckon if push comes to shove perfection could be achieved with not too much more effort but I have about a hundred other things to sort out at the moment so they'll do very nicely :)

    Two wheel drifts are the absolute most fun! Glad to hear it's all coming together now!

    I don't need it to be 4wd to be honest but I would really really like to keep it 4wd and the obvious performance benefits of twin motors makes it a pretty exciting prospect...
    The idea I have is to achieve a similar result as I had been planning with the 1UR swap but in an EV if possible...

    @Libraio @Emyr
    I certainly appreciate it won't be cheap, I've seen LDUs on eBay for around €5,000-ish so it wouldn't be long adding up but I also would hope that I can manage the cost a bit better than just going out and buying a kit... I'd almost wonder would it be worth considering buying a very cheap Model S as a donor even?

    In terms of housing the batteries I was actually thinking of possibly building a new floor for the car to make a sort of DIY skateboard chassis similar to the Model S one?
    I've got a bunch of ideas at the moment basically but need to try and get a bit of direction to see how it might work out? I appreciate it's an ambitious notion but I don't see the point of doing it if it wasn't going to be a good job...

    Ah I mean you can get pretty good slim pads these days but I don't think I could get over that single button closure... I have Race Face shorts with single button closure and I hate them, they're extremely unforgiving to any weight gain sadly...

    Think I might actually just get a pair of Endura MT500 Burner pants following on from copious research...

    Rapha Trail Pants due out soon, they look pretty neat and the price isn't nuts but I'm not sure how rad the smart casual look is for shredding the gnar? Single button closure seems like a mistake too unless there's an internal second button?

    shorter end of the spectrum

    I've got a 40mm stem on the Capra...

    Wait a minute... are these the low rise bars you've got on your GT at the moment? If they're uncut I could take them off your hands if you wanted to get the high rise ones instead?

    I can't get myself to selling it

    Surely that is justification for buying the bars?

    I'm now in turmoil as I suspect those Hunter low rise ones might be a bit more swept than I'd like which leads me back to the For Shred ones or two other possible choices...

    Buy another Truvativ BlackBox Stevie Smith bar but hope I can find the silver one this time.

    Wait until Chromag release another polished finished bar and hope I can buy one before they sell out.

    I don't have a build to put these on at the moment and I'm getting stressed about it :(

    That GT is absolutely bloody superb by the way, don't ever sell it!

    Hunter Cycles Smooth

    Oh boy! Wider too at 780mm which I'm currently running. These might be the ones alright!
