It was way overdue, it defintiely rides amazing. Biggest things are smooth/solid feeling and the confidence in flat out corning. It really feels so dialed in and very predictable, which is both a good and a little boring at times.

Nice work, where's the 56k users warning??
Who still uses 56k? I'm getting about 1.2mbs on my phone on the train, haha.

I guess Flickr Stopped auto-scaling reposted links :(

Subscribed. What I plan to tackle in 2020 (except I'll probably not remove the entire subframe). You went with a non-IPD front sway? Any increased NVH with the solid subframe?

I went with a non-IPD because the bushings are fused in and rubber VS poly so a little less vibration. As far as NVH and the Delrins, No and Yes, regular road bumps no but you will feel the more extreme bumps like pot holes a little more. In my opinion, well worth it and my R is probably the most NVH focused of any R out there.

It’s beautiful. Great work and a BIG project. You have a brand new R. I think you now need more challenging corners and hills to satisfy that thirst for burst.

I am doing the same exact thing, but I am using all Powerflex in my rear. I too am going with the Delrans in the front and now the rear after reading your parts list.

I never drove a new VR but now I plan on it, just modified a little.

Been looking for rear Delrin rear subframe bushings... Have the fronts installed with the TME springs all-around. Googling "Generation Volvo Delrin Rear Subframe Bushings" always deletes the word "Generation". Please elaborate on sourcing these.
