I have been struggling to fix the wheel wobble that has been happening on MAX for over a month(and 3 trackdays!) now. It was a similiar feeling to a wheel that was out of balance, but about 5 times worse!!!!! The tierods had a heap of movement in them so we replaced them(both inners and outers) along with the worst wheel Alignment ever before D1 at Hampton Downs, that didnt help. Stay away from Wairau Alignment and Suspension for wheel alignments!!!! Next on the list to replace was the steering rack, It was on the way out but after doing a rushed mission to swap it an hour before we had to go to a funeral that didnt help fix the wobble. It was about now that I was about ready to give up, all the obvious signs of movement had been replaced. After getting under the car again I found that the top pillow ball mounts on both the front shocks had play, so they are out ready to be replaced, however after swapping some temporary shocks in it still didnt fix the problem. So today after someone mentioned that brakes could be causing it I swapped the S14 front brake setup for some R33 GTS25T brakes with braided lines, which was supposed to be done when I upgraded the rears.
Which has finally fixed the problem! It is quite frustrating though as I really wanted to compete at Drews comp this weekend in Taupo. Now we dont have any concrete dates that the car has to drive at we can also start doing all the little jobs that previously have been neglected due to having no spare time to work on the car! Aswell as fixing the wobble I also fixed a bunch of other small interior problems which all broke when I was at Manfield Jamboree!!!
We will have to make sure the car is going for our trackdays though, Skidpan on the 4th of June and full track on the 9th of July.
