Afternoon Gents,

Anybody have any input on these kits?



Seem to get a lot of good feedback, though I think I'd weld the subframe member in.

Thoughts?

I have looked into them to the point of judging from afar and I like the design. I would need to have one to play with to really know.

You will need an engineer to sign off so check with them/one before you purchase.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Thought about TCP Ronin.

TCP but I don't have the car on the road yet so can't comment on the ride. Certainly looks the good though.

The dollar is gone mate for a long time. It will keep going down for a while now and will settle.

Does the TCP stuff need to be engineered at all?

Yeah, I guess its more just the shipping costs on top of the parts that bugs me. Could always check out the RRS stuff....

Yes the TCP needs engineering as far as I know. Have heard mixed reports about the RRS gear but I am certainly no expert. soc123_au knows a bit about it.

Sorry Boof, missed your reply there.

This is something that I'd like to do by probably Jan next year, so there's a lot of time to do some solid research.

Hell, might even just go down the "well tuned stock" route ala Street or Track.

The reason I was attracted to them is
1) the elimination of the struct rod
2) bottom arm can be located to help with dynamic camber
3) relatively easy to install.
That kit satisfies all of the above.

As far as engineering, yes TCP needs to be engineered as well.
BTW: I am with Cage I expect the US dollar to keep getting stronger so try to get major items sooner than later.

Too bad we can't get parts from Europe. You watch the Euro crash soon if country's like Greece start to back out

Maybe we can start to look at some Euro spec cars Boof.

Euro specs cars - yes good idea. Easier for us in some ways as RHD is relatively common in various countries.

I agree Euro will keep going down so you never know where the best opportunities will be.

Another to look at is Ridetech

www.ridetech.com/store...vel-2.html

It relocated most of the suspension points to get the right set up which is great. Not sure I like all of the design choices though. Having said that I am sure this would be a better set up as far as the driver was concerned.

My no 1 at this stage is DS setup.

www.detroitspeed.com/1...rame.html#

Having said all of the above you can get the stock setup to work quite well with a few tweaks (for a lot less money than the above offerings).
