    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:

    no, you cant.

    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

    Struts.

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

    Re: Struts.


    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.

    Theyre just the little "wing-like" things that attach to the corner of the rear bar.

    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.....
