We have one of these on ozvr4 and it gets a good workout.

It's for all those simple questions someone might have that only requires a single answer, not a whole thread which ends up going offtopic.

Rules of this thread:

1)bold the question, and quote it when answering. eg:

can i turbo my 1.5L on my p plates?
no, you cant.

what is a PCD?
pitch circle diameter, lancer/mirages are 4x100. google it for more info

2) Keep it short and sweet

3) Provide a one to two sentence explanation, then provide a link to any topics/articles/threads that are relevant. You must provide a link to backup your explanation if you are not 100% sure of your answer

I think this can work is we keep explanations short and sweet, and if we can add links to the relevant topic/websites

I think it will work if we avoid having discussions in this thread, and provide a link to a thread on here or a wiki article etc...

Keep it short and sweet, minimal discussion, link people if required. Maybe Auslancer can get this right...maybe

Just confirming the correct wheel nut size for CE's are M12 x 1.5mm? Therefore these will be fine? (They have 60 degrees of taper too, using with oz racing f1 wheels)

Just double checking that Lancer coupe quarter panels fit the mirage also?
Make sure you get the ones to fit your headlights

Okay, seen a lot of talk about struts. What the heck are they, and what do they do?

struts=shocks as far as im concerned.

Springs are what stops the car jarring when you hit a bump.
Just springs alone will cause the car to bounce or rock back and forth for a very very long time.

Struts dampen this, in the same way that thing on top of a door stops its slamming (like fire doors).

Strut towers are the location (generally the top?) of where the struts go.

another newb question.. What are the rear pods? I know what the bar is but pods are..?
Theyre just the little "wing-like" things that attach to the corner of the rear bar.



Ugly pic, but Its them

Can I spray the maf with electrical contact cleaner to give it a clean?

and Joshy or tronda might be able to help me with this one

Checked the AC lines on my wreck at the points Joshy told me, pressed the valves in both spots with and allen key and no pressure was released so Iam presuming it has all leaked out in the crash ,all good to disconnect the lines? (see pics below)

Quick question regarding vinyl wrap (no not that carbon stuff).
How many colours of "white" do companies/suppliers usually have?
And has anyone tried to colour match a vinyl to their car?
Specifically I'm after something that roughly matches the mitsu colour Scotia White.....
