Well I've only felt them a few times (as its not my car) but I've got another friend who has owned a couple different sets of coils too, and he says they feel really weird to him as well.

Let me kn ...

Tim I asked for the Velocity plots too, but this is all they have.

Thanks for the rough calcs, I find it interesting. I say they feel under damped on rebound because say you go over a bump, they f ...

These are S13 coils with 9/7 springrates. I don't know how to read these graphs, but I know they feel way under damped in terms of rebound. Do the graphs indicate this also or am I crazy?

I'd love to read this thing! My problem is being an Econ major I've never taken more than the first week of a Physics class. I've taken calc so I'm somewhat familiar with vectors, but a lot of physi ...

Well one thing to keep in mind with torsen diffs is that they act like an open diff once a wheel is lifted. And if I'm not mistaken people lift tires pretty frequently at autox's. Just something to ...

I use a Fox DHX 5.0 on my mountain bike and its pretty good for biking. But wouldn't be any good on a car. I'd only use the double barrel on a car. All the good mountain biking shocks have multiple ...

haha I'm the same guy on ka-t. Scooter was already taken on that forum so I had to pick something else.

You'll like the Haltech. As an added benefit they fit in your glove box perfectly! haha

A much bigger problem than the driveshaft will be the bottom of the bellhousing. You're gonna need to find a way to modify it. It's already the lowest part of the drivetrain and lowering the engine ...

Well after a lot of thinking, I can't afford to do this project right now. So I guess I'll just make a new set of lower control arms and get as much roll center adjustment as I can out of them. The ...

Tim, why do you want your front roll center lower than the rear? I've heard this before, but don't know why it is. How much lower are we talking? a couple inches?

I think you're right about th ...

alright, I've got a few more questions.

If my installation ratio is 1, then my shock is going to have to be as long if not a little bit longer than my wheel travel right? Just making sure.

Thanks for all the input!
