I do some drifting and planning on getting involved in autocross. Anyway I had some issues I suspected were the DTSS bushings (original 20 years old). So, I installed Racing Beat DTSS eliminators.



Just took a testdrive. DTSS eliminators are awesome! I had developed an issue where the *** end would sidestep to the right when the right side rear suspension would unload over a bump, the issue is completely gone. Also the car had started pulling to the right a few weeks ago and that is almost completely gone as well, the rest is tire pressure.



Much more predictable than 20 year old DTSS bushings. It took me less than two months to kill the DTSS system bushings in my vert, I would definately recommend this as the FIRST modification for ANY RX7 of the FC variety.



Initial turn in is very noticably more responsive now that the blown out DTSS system is not giving me rediculous rear toe-in



Next up, going to get some KYB AGX's for the rear (the front shocks are still surviving on for the moment, and I dont have money for all four yet)



I had started running 225's up front with the stock 205's in back to counter understeer, but with these bushings she gets a very slight oversteer during cornering, if you have to corner harder partway through a turn at 50MPH+ maintaining constant speed. Otherwise she feels very balanced with these tire sizes. Keep in mind though, my stock rear struts are completely toast, and covered in their own fluid which probably has something to do with the slight oversteer I experienced, and the understeer I'm countering with larger front tires.



HELL YES! These DTSS eliminators ARE AWESOME!

I'll be AutoX'ing mine so I may check into this. It still needs to be reliable when the Jeep is down for upgrades!

you want reliable have the engine rebuild just a standard rebuild if you want a little extra power then a mild port would work wonders

Maybe later...................or I can go to the dark side if i win the lottery! LSx swap! The jeep is in line first! I figure if the more reliable vehicle is done first(yeah, I said it), i can drive it while the other is down.
