sway away torsion bars and leaves

Anyone know of an aussie supplier that stocks these? I need some bigger torsion bars (29mm) and some stiffer leaves for my porker of a buggy.. u.s shipping is almost more than the parts!

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

And I also had to make a heat shield/cage thingy for the special people that are too dumb to realize that exhausts are hot... I ended up making a new v.s.s wheel to try and keep the ECU happy on deceleration but I ended up just having to earth the neutral switch and now it is happy and doesn't stall...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

I had to basically remake the headers, I should have done that from the start as they were appallingly bad. If a gumby like me can do nicer welds then you should re think your business model... :evil: Pretty pleased with how they turned out, would have been nicer if they were purged on the inside bu...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

Congrats, well done....it is one of the best feelings getting them registered!! Again! But now that is it for a long time. I don't plan on any mods at all. I just want to use the bloody thing! I thought you might like the smoothness! Lol. What ratio did you end up going with in your box? 4.11 with ...

I have done about 400k's so far love the motor! It is very smooth, it has a awesome note that I am so proud of! :mrgreen: The ratios that Todd su...

I have hooked up the neutral to the start signal, so when the motor starts it sees it is in neutral but once started it sees it is in gear. Need a relay to do this for manual. I have ...
