    Welcome to PL man! Lotta good info on here. Not sure if we have any other Vermont members on here, but try to look up some local facebook groups in your area. You can usually find some meets on there. Best of luck!
  3. Need help on my lancer es

    Welcome to PL, man! Sounds like you got an awesome build, any pics? Also, as for mods, if you haven't lowered yet, that's a good mod. Even just springs will really tighten up the car and make it feel a lot better around corners, not to mention the looks.

  6. CVT Problem After Road Trip

    Okay cool, I'll try that next time it happens, thank you for the input!
  7. CVT Problem After Road Trip

    Alright PL, so I took my car on a roadtrip today. Drove a few hundred miles on the highway. However, when I got off the exit ramp, and tried to turn at the light, my car was extremely sluggish. I had my foot to the floor, and I was hardly going anywhere. as if I was barely on the throttle. It was almost kinda like the clutch wasn't fully engaged. I was wondering what would be the cause of this, and if any of you CVT guys have experienced this before. The car eventually went back to normal after a couple minutes of city driving, so I'm thinking the ECU or the CVT needed some time to adjust, perhaps? Lmk what you guys think.
  8. Finding new coilovers.

    gstacruz777 hit the nail on the head. There's nothing wrong with springs, but coilovers will give you a lot more adjustment to tweak the ride height and stiffness to your comfort. I personally went with Tein lowering springs about a couple years ago, and I wish I would've just saved up and went with coils in the first place. I'd be able to go lower, and I'm sure the ride would be a bit better because the stock struts aren't really made to handle the stiffer springs.

    Just got new headlights so I figured I'd do a progress update. Nothing has changed apart from the headlights and a JDM style license plate up front. Headlights were a much needed upgrade for me, due to not having the SSS package. The HIDs make an amazing difference at night. And, they completely update the look of the front of the car. Very happy with them. Now, I just need to work on getting some coils
  11. Absolutely beautiful car. Probably my favorite build on here. Hope she's in good hands. What car did you get now?

    Those headlights
  13. Welcome to PL! Love those headlights
  14. Alright PL stancer community, so I may or may not be ordering coilovers in the near future but I was wondering if anybody on coils already could tell me about their experience with whatever spring rates they got. I'm planning on going the slammed/stance route so I was thinking 12k/9k f/r springs. (I bumped up stiffness in the rear because my weight distribution is a bit off with my sound system). The coils come stock 6k/4k, so would 12k/9k be a bit overkill? I just don't wanna be rubbing and bottoming out, I really don't care too much about ride quality. Thanks guys
