I have doubts it will sit at a good height, and it will probably be very bouncy. Just give up now and call me to pick it in Montreal. Hey, I am only 2 hours away! 8)

I would probably say it is more like 1h30. I now live in Vaudreuil ;) But that would be awesome for you to come over one day, we could barbecue and have a beer in the garage! Or i could go to Ottawa.

By the way, there is this weekend the SSPA in Napierville (Sunday). DSM Quebec will be there.

I am in the Spartan Spring at Camp Fortune, but will take you up on going to Napierville or a beer locally (yours/mine) some day. I am just glad I could take my car to the track and get it to shift properly now. Urethane mounts has done wonders, except for the fillings in my teeth. 8)

Well, the suspension is installed and I got it all aligned by the best shop in town "Garbis" This guy's garage is cleaner than an OR.

I have to say that I was very surprised with the suspension behaviour, In opposite to my rear Teins the konis are a lot smoother. They really absorb and don't just bounce as the teins do.

An autocross guy told me one day that teins were'nt that good of a suspension, they are way too stiff and creates a bouncing effect. Since I am a drag racer, I guess my teins will be giving me that rear stiffness required to limit weight transfer while the konis in the front will manage the track to allow for maximum traction.

They really feel in control of the road, they are very predictable and comfortable. Now I really need to get rid of my 195-60/14 Dunlops, the sidewalls are way too soft and wobbly.

The big brakes I'm intending to install next year will require 15 inches, so ill be shopping for new tires in the mean time. ;)

Well definately the spring rate of my tein coil overs is way too stiff! Car still bounce pretty bad. This Tein flex kit was on an EVO 3, I think they are 600lb +. Ill try to swap back my Eibach 250lb from my GC kit on the tein struts.

This is an old Post! I'm going through here on the Org looking for whatever happened to the car I sold Olivier, (Coltmax).
COLTMAX where are you?
