Say, these 2 suspension have their own character, Tein SS is more on street use as it'll stick to every bump on roads unlike the D2, it's like playing the "hopping around" music by cypress hill while driving wild in corners. On the other hand, SS can't compare to D2 in track. Track is almost flat surface without bumps, obviously Fire88 car, when sat in his normal leather seat, i dun feel being sliding side to side. I'll say D2 is very much for track use, but it's still feels smooth on normal road on hard spring.........damping sure plays a main part to tat.....cheers

As mentioned to you before, I had tension the spring setting myself that why it is much stiffer. Initially it was quite soft and handling wasn't that great, with more body roll.

With current setting it create lot of funny sound everywhere, ting ting , tok tok, kok kok, tong tong....haiz very sian. Will try to get the dealer to put rubber hose ard the springs and grease all joints, but still stick to same setting or slightly harder. Probably lower my car for another 1/2 inch. Hopefully all can be done befor sp track day..... then you can try it again......we can also swap coil to try out if you want to...no problem for me:D Very Happy Very Happy

bro BOSS Beejan...

last time you track wif me, i was on STOCK suspensions... only front springs are eibach... rear is stock. shocks were also stock...

betol la... no problem one... just go for wheel alignment for your car and make sure all tracking is straight... and camber buka as big as possible can leow... hahaha...

just watch your brakes... good to service and renew brake fluid to at least dot5.1 if possible. if not just play until brake fade and drive slower lor haha

still fun to do engine brake and drift into corners... heh heh...

oh.. do make sure your tyres never puncture before... that would be a little bit dangerous... although i oso did that before previously hahaha...but that round my brakes gave out by round 7... so not an issue...


fun fun at sepang...
