Default DIY: Installing a Spin Turb ****

For you guys that are into the drift scene or would just like to have a cool looking E-Brake button this might be just for you.


To remove the stock one you would need to spin it Counter clock wise (facing the back of the car) it should just come right off after couple seconds. The stock spring would not be necessary so that would need to come off too.

This is what will be taking it's place, it's originally for an AE86 from Techno Toy Tuning. It will work just fine.

Once the stock one it's off this is what it will look like.

Fit the new one right in and spin it Clockwise until it's all nice and tight. This just takes like 2 minutes BTW.
