Tracked the Si for the first time this last weekend at Cal Speedway. The N+ did great, was very satisfied on how well they did. Played with settings all weekend and on a flat track like Fontana 8 in front and 12 in the rear work very well.





I suggest to actually go out and really use your coilovers. So much more fun over stock.

I do my track days through NASA. I'm in the HPDE 3 group. Its about 300 bucks (sometimes less, just depends on the track) for the weekend, two days of racing. The Si was not the car I went there in. I went with my cobra which is set up for the track. But I blew out third gear on the second session so since I had six more sessions left I subbed in the Si. It's all stock minus the coils and tires. Brake fade was an issue but a quick change of braking habbits fixed that. It did real well. Got to pass a few mustang buddies too, I did love there faces as I passed by. You get to hit 120 in the Oval at Fontana.

You will not be disapointed in the Si with a good set of coilovers

Hey what's up fellow 8th-geners. Got a quick question for ya. I just installed these N+ coilovers on my 08 si sedan and i'm getting a clunking sound in the right rear on the passenger side of the car. Anyone have an idea of what it may be??

Everything is tightened up and i can't figure it out. just thought some of you guys that have more experience with the way the rear suspension is set up would be able to help me.

thanks in advance.

coilovers shouldnt even come close to hitting the exhaust.

clunking noise is probably something is not tightened enough.

It's is a blast. Doesn't matter what car you drive. I had just as much fun in the Si as I do in the Cobra. And ya 120 felt fast, hit 140 in the Cobra, and a couple guys in their C6 Z06 were hitting 170. The course in total is 2.88 miles

The rims are RPF1's 18x7.5

could be the camber arm. mine was hitting the body of the car on the right side. I put two of the little things that you put on the bottom of chair legs on the camber arm, and one where it was hitting and i now have no clunking noise.

hey check the bump stop, make sure its all the way up.. that will cause a clunking noise and make you think it's the actually the damper, but it could just be the bump stop.
