We have chatted on H-T! Small world. Glad you like the car.

Why were we chatting? I forget...

This car drives amazing, but it should for only having 125k on it!

Hopefully we'll work on getting the body ready to be painted the spring, then it should be a nearly perfect VX again. He found some HX and VX wheels for it, he just needs to decide which he wants I think. THe wheels on it now probably weight about 20 lbs a piece...and are 6.5 inches wide! More traction that a VX needs in my opinion. Haha
What did you do to fix the alignment problem? I have a 95 VX that needs an alignment. If this is something I can do myself, I'm all for it.

We at first just "eye-balled" it to get the wheels straight (since they were pointing the wrong directions), and then we measured from tire to tire to get it closer. It doesn't pull now, but I think the car has a caster issue, which is something you can't really adjust without some proper tools.

Do a search for alignment on google, and you'll find a few different methods. We looked at a few, got an idea of how we should do it, and just gave some things a try.

Hmmm...I think it may have been over and D16a6 head I was selling but not sure...


yea the alignment was eyeballed it was way out of wack visually got it closer to centered and the measured from tire to tire across the front, it made a hug difference, I plan to get the car aligned at a shop in the near future once I get my new wheels and tires on...
