The car is booked in at Ian Litchfield's at the end of the month ,rear Bilsteins knocking.
Ryan checked the top mounts when he fitted the brakes.Ian is going to take both rears off and send them to Bilstein for repair,hopefully the problem will be cured.

Took the car to Ian Litchfield's this morning.He doesn't think the Bilsteins are the problem.He said the alloy droplinks wont help the situation.
Bilstein coilovers
Perrin fr & r arb
CDF alloy droplinks.
I thought it would corner like a go-kart......it doesn't

Nice to hear Dave that you have now got the suspension setup that you wanted all along, the car is looking good as well. How are you finding the DS3000 brake pads?

To be honest Ty I didn't push that hard on the way home but first impressions are that the brakes are spot on now.I am well pleased how the brakes and suspension have turned out.
I noticed a very nice car tucked away by the gate.

Nice to hear that Dave, as suspension and brakes can really be a pig to get right and what some like, some will detest a lot of it is down to personal preference I believe.

Yes, she is not too bad for an old Bugeye and will soon be even better.

Brakes have settled in nicely now Ap racing calipers on the front with Ferodo pads and Brembo calipers on the rear with Pf pads.The fronts are a bit dusty but I can live with that.

Put some heat in them I have run DS2500 compound before they don't seem to like being feathered,you have to bed them in properly for them to perform the right way,they are a bit dusty but are a good pad as it is the pad that comes supplied with the AP caliper kits.SJ.

I'm swapping out my DS2500's this week due to how dusty they are. Brilliant stopping power but just too dusty for a daily driver imo

I was going to to put Pf pads on the front but Ryan spoke to Alyn at ASP and was advised to go with the Ferodos.Good advice as it turns out.

I would not personally change a pad out due to dust as long as they functioned properly,Just put some wheel wax on and they are easy to clean.SJ.

Was advised by my mate who details my car to swap them as the dust is baking into my wheels. Which were only freshly powder coated a few months back

Hi Dave

Personally I would go with PF Z-Rated pads which are probably best for occasional track days and fast road,we run them on our wagon and they're not so dusty as DS2500

DS2500 are very dusty,we run them on K-Sport and we are replaced them for PF and difference is there like in braking and dustiness

Similar what I can say,EBC Blue or Orange are dusty pads,I would go with PF without the doubts

Your right mate but to be honest I would not change a pad for producing too much dust as long as they work and the DS2500 does and is a much better pad then any similar EBC pad which I would not use on a push bike.The daddies will always be the PF as I'm always saying on here,but what I'm trying to get across is that you would have to be a madman to change fully functional pads because they were throwing out a bit more dust and that was the only reason for changing them.SJ.

I was going to have PF on the front to match the rears Alyn at ASP told Ryan the Ferodos would work better.I changed them because the AP calipers came with orange stuff fitted.I had the Kevlar pads in the black sti Brembos I had fitted before,to be honest they gave a good bite.

Did you try the orangestuff pads, in the AP calipers?

My plan for 2014 is a 2.1 engine build. I know i should be looking at a sti 6 speed but i do like the 5 speed gearbox.Is there a strong 5 speed gearbox that i can fit in a Blobeye?
Do i get a sti engine and get that rebuilt or get my wrx engine rebuilt i will have to look into it and see which is most cost effective.

should have bought a STI
There you are i have saved the usual suspects time by typing it myself.

If your rebuilding your engine you might as well stick with what you have as you will be forging it anyway,and buying a STI is just another added expense you don't need.If you could pick up a 2.0 litre CDB and build that,that would make more sense and a better option.SJ.
