NEW FEATURE: Post Like system!!!

At long last, we have successfully implemented a comprehensive post rating/like system. With casual readers and visitors vastly outnumbering frequent posters, it is not always apparent to users that others are reading, enjoying and grateful for their posts. If you are too shy to post and want to express your thanks, now you can!

Liking a post is easy - click this thumbs up in the top right hand corner of the post: Image

Can I encourage everyone to use this new feature enthusiastically and liberally and be sure to go back to your favourite old topics and like old posts. This will help build up useful user 'like' profiles and give credit to the users who has provided so much value to this community. This in turn helps guests and newcomers sort useful answers and posters from others.

This goes to regular forum lurkers especially - please show your appreciation with a 'like'!

Featuring:
  • Liked post counters in every user profile (given & received)
  • Liked post leaderboard accessible from the index and Quick Links Menu
  • Receive notifications when your post is liked, configurable from the User Control Panel (in forum notification and/or email notifications available or off)
  • You can remove a like if you made a mistake by clicking the undo button where the thumbs up used to sit (but the user will be notified)
  • Plus more

Hey all would like to upgrade the factory bound up wattslink with either an adjustable Wattslink or use a Panhard Rod conversion, who in Australia is making what?? or am I forced to look overseas like the Techno Toy Tuning one??

I dont know how good that could be being bolt on, these rear ends arnt exactly designed to have a panhard bolted on to them.
The MSF panhard looks good http://www.msfracingcomponents.com.au/m ... omponents/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; pretty much the same design as Xtreme rotaries used to do.
Member STUIE..? on here bought the patterns off him and was selling the kit a few years ago - i bought one off him. He's not active on here anymore though, BUT, he is mates with ADSY01 (ACBRON Motorsports) so you could try contacting him.

The other thing you can do on the cheap is replace all the nuts on your (edit) existing watts link (edit) with Nylock nuts an washers - grease the pivot points, and do up the nuts loose enough that the linkages move freely. The big Nylocks wont come undone by themselves.

Your right these kits do look good, yeah I have tried contacting Acbron through FB and there website but get no answer, I know he's setting up a new shop so will just have to be patient and see what else is out there in the mean time.

That $600 MSF bar was the go-to design in IPRA back in the day, everyone was doing something that looked like that, including the Xtreme rotaries/Stuie ones. If you do manage to get one off stuie through adsy I doubt it will be any cheaper, but wait till you hear back from him, who knows.
It is a weld on set up though.

Stuie did buy the jig for the panhard rod conversion off Rohan and Adsy has access to it, but you'll have to wait for an answer from him on whether he intends of manufacturing the product. I know he has a heap of products in the works but they are very busy working through a backlog of jobs due to the workshop move.

Yeah, I wouldnt hold my breath the way he is going, bless his heart. It would be awesome if he did one with poly-bushed ends. There would be a market for it world-wide i would imagine. We should hassle him to do those!

I've got the MSF panhard bar kit in my series 1. Had to remove the rear exhaust hanger tab on the driver's side rail to fit it. Otherwise seems to be a good thing but I haven't driven the car yet! :roll:

Watts link kit from here is ~$900

And you would actually get it. Whereas with msf you might not be that lucky.
