    Default

    And finally the car came to me after almost 2 years and 11 months being at two places, where have been worked on it - JS Design for exhaust and ICI Design for basically almost everything. During this period I havenít driven the car or heard itís voice. And now with so much modifications and at such much higher performance level it is like owning a new car with which I have to get used to. And now some photos, this time from me 🙂

    Default Rev.2

    Some corrections and changes have been made to the car after I have done some kilometres with it and collected some impressions of my basically new car, so will call this Rev.2 . The biggest and most important of all is on suspension and especially at the front side. It was very crashy and unforgiving at the front on our for sure not perfect roads and was really unpleasant to drive if the road is not good. I don't expect a comfort like a normal car, but that was too much.
    So I decided to try something different and was ordered front BC Racing BR coilovers for Fiat Coupe turbo with standard spring rates of 6kg/mm

    These have also benefit of adjustable damping in 30 positions by knobs at the top, so some tuning is possible at any time.

    An opportunity occur to buy slightly used rear dampers from same BR kit for Fiat Coupe turbo and get them

    They are also adjustable in 30 positions as the front ones and will be better match for custom stiff GAZ springs as H&R dampers was really soft and they are produced for different model in the first place (155 V6)

    Right now they are set at 5 clicks from hardest setting and now the car feel better for sure, it is stiff, but not so crashy at front so I can say that I'm happy with this move .

    Other things, which have been touched are not so big, but still add to the total effect of better car

    And as a final touch, changing of toggle switches with bigger and stronger ones

    The car now is a very serious machine and a blast to drive. The acceleration is like a rocket to me and you feel and hear everything unlike new cars, which adds to the drama. That tyre size 215/40-R17 is practically the maximum 17" for this car in my opinion and even with soft semi-slicks traction is not always there, so have to be careful.
