ah, i forgot the oh so huge <20mm TRD sway which is next to useless. About the only thing it does is get rid of some of the large amounts of factory induced understeer.

When I saw the car in Miami at the private event they held, I was in a suit. I wasnt trying to get down on the ground in those clothes but I did get a look at the struts and coils. stock for sure unless they flat blacked something else.

Yeah it was on stock struts/shock at the Miami event since it was being transported to Miami. We had HKS and TRD coil overs for it and are still working on the Dirt setup but we are testing a Tarmac setup with Progress Technology. Progress also might help on a longer travel setup for us in the dirt but for now we are trying out different spring rates for the Tarmac setup.

The S.E.R.T. xA is also in the March issue of HCI released last Friday also
Check out the updates and for more info check out this link

Update :AF: looks like the S.E.R.T. team is at it again some quick updates:

No sleep for the wicked up at 5am in the morning to go test out a new suspension set up (more info to come)... The xA looks just as good in Tarmac setup! Just remove the qwick disconnect light pod and put on some J2 410's shoes with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa R compund rubber soles and she is ready for the track.



Here is a couple of pics of the suspension (sorry for the pics quality but it was late ;) ) I think the preliminary specs was a 1.5

Sure...
To have as much fun with it as possible, be it on a Tarmac, dirt entry level rally whatever we can do to see what this thing can handle and so far it has suprised me. Sure it is underpowered and odd but who cares it is a car and with it's weight we can work on the power. Plus several companys are working on this project to test parts on it since the Scion scene is so hot in the market now.

So maybe next month we have the obx turbo on it, maybe not all I know is that I have a chance to work on a Rally car project and having fun doing it. unfortanely my 1972 Celica is still on stands and the 18RG is a conversation piece but I will get back to it someday and finish that retro IMSA project; until then I will be taking on the h8ters and smiling the whole time having fun playin with the xA.

Peace :wiggle:
