    Rally Coilovers! Anyone?

    well, I've popped some Tein Flex coil-overs on my car and well they are pretty bad...I've played with the dampening rates and nothing seems to really help...SO

    I'm looking around for something with considerable more travel, I'm not sure what the stock travel is but it'd have to be 3-4 times that of what the flex have which by way of shocks pretty much puts me straight into rally territory.

    anyone played around with shocks of this level? Ksport have some that look like they'd be interesting to "try"

    http://www.statracing.com/buy/ksport/pn/cmt191-gt.asp

    Spring rates: 504 lb Front(9kg ish) and 392 lb Rear (7kg)

    Stock Tein flex are 12kg front and 5kg rear

    Tein flex's are ment to have a total travel of what...4" maximum? :| not goooood enough.

    1G dsm suspension is not drastically different in front from the 3S setup. You may want to try Drummond Motor Sports (DMS). When I had rally dreams for my dsm's they were on my list as you see them on many SCCA rally cars and were very popular on the dsm's that rally.

    To my knowledge, the EDFC doesn't control ride height.

    Good luck with that. D2 and KSport are both the same Chinaware. A fellow German 3s driver works as engineer in China and managed to find out where they are actually made.
    He's been in China for almost 15 years now and he sais he'd never put a chinese made suspension on his car.

    well, for 1K (that I've found the AR series for) they'd have paid them selves off if they last even a year.

    I ran the drag D2's this year with a custom spring rate and never had an issue with travel even with the car slammed, i never bottomed out the suspension.

    We've used them in a bunch of cars and yes they are all the same company but they all work, we've never had an issue with any of them.

    -Ricer Evo 8: 8.75 @ 166 Best MPH of 167. Quickest 4G63 Powered Evo in The US!!!
    -Chris Cessna's Stock short block Evo 8: 9.76@150 Worlds Fastest Stock Motor Evo 8 and First Stock Block In The 9's!
    -Shawna's DD Evo 8: 9.97@143.88 Best MPH of 145 Full leather interior, A/C, navigation, stock brakes, cruisin 9's in style
    -Cory's Stock 7 bolt talon: 10.3@136 No crank walk here...
    -STM Stock turbo/motor Stealth RT: 10.95@127 Worlds Quyickest/Fastest and most powerful Stock turbo/ motor 3S
    -James STM built Pump gas Evo8 stock motor: 10.2@137 Stock long block, and only on pump gas!
    -Mike Faggiano Evo3 16g stock motor 1g 11.0@124 just a 16g knockin on 10's door.
    And the list goes on...
