    Brake & Suspension upgrades

    Hello from Held Motorsports. I recently discovered this site after a customer mentioned a kitcar forum... anyway, I'd like to mention we have brake and suspension upgrades for Fiero based kitcars and look forward to any questions you may have.

    check it out at:
    http://heldmotorsports.com

    drop me an email anytime - dave@heldmotorsports.com
    By the way, I drive an F355 replica with our 13" brakes,
    Slalom Front Suspension ( wide track ) and Rear Bump Steer
    Correction ( wide track ) coilovers, etc...

    Thanks for the space!

    Hey Dave...

    Would I have been that Customer?

    Odd... I drive a 355 replica with HMS 13" brakes,
    Slalom Front Suspension ( wide track ) and Rear Bump Steer
    Correction ( wide track ) coilovers, etc... :

    Well... sorta... Mine is still under construction but the brakes are installed and the rear coilovers, I've yet to install the wide track conversiohn yet as I need to get the body completed to get the exact measurements for the track width increase.

    I also have HMS 88 front to rear wheel bearing converted drop spindles.

    Most of you have seen my website and pics of my suspension and HUGE Brakes...

    The point is, I have installed and used many of HMS parts and think the WORLD of them. I highly recommend them to any of you that are curious.

    You will not be disappointed with the products from Dave Held. The 12 inch brakes and complete suspension packages make me feel like I am driving a Challenge Car. Sticks like glue. He stands behind his products as well. I had to exchange some springs, no problem. They came the next day.
    The parts are easy to put on your car too!

    +4 on the rear before Held made the anti bump steer kit (now on my car) *No spacers, big brakes. *The plastic pony stops pretty well with this stuff.

    Good talking with you Spyder, hope to be at the next Daytona event as well.

    Ari:

    I had new axles made up at a local performance shop. Precision Shaft Technologies, Clearwater, Florida. He makes all kinds of drive shafts and axles. Mostly for drag cars and monster trucks. He made up a special set for me to put S-10 Hub Splines mated to Fiero 5 Speed inner CV joints. He made the axles 4 inches longer to fit the suspension. They cost about $200 per side. He heat-treated the finished product to make it stronger. I have had no problem with them in the last 45,000 miles or so.
