Yeah, when we were leaving the parking lot, Royce decided to put on a show and did a really big burnout through the lot. Not cool. Also, swerving on the freeway was also dangerous.

And Sky001 - I don't even know where to begin dude. You shouldn't be allowed to join meets that involve any sort of driving.

hey marc, any rubbing occuring on that road with the specs you have right now on your bc coils?
No... I didn't really have to do any hard cornering. I know the Sea2Sky is full of sharp S-curves, so I was actually looking forward to testing out my suspension. But alas, rockfall > 8thcivic meet.

I was behind marc when we're heading to the park. His car is not that bouncy as I thought. I wonder how it feels inside the car. Ping complains about the coil's killing his back. Btw, ping got the same coil as Marc.

How about your setup, Meeks? Any complains from gf? Hehehe....

rides like stock. which is good and bad. too soft yet no complaints from passengers. when i was riding with west and susan, scraped at the end of a big hill doing 70.

the custom alignment was amazing though. turn in was better. understeer was still there but a little less noticable, it goes towards a 'neutral' feel

Ping is just a little girl :D

No man, my coilovers are really nice. I love the ride quality. Not bouncy at all... very planted and stable around corners. It feels stock but 2-3 times stiffer.

Hahaha... A baller lil'girl, eh? I'm waiting for his type-r conversion. Should be awesome with mugen GP and lowered too.

I wonder how the Skunk2 Pro-S feels like coz it's the cheapest coilover in the market-$699 shipped. So far, BC N+ is on my list when I want to change the suspension.

That drive from Harrison city center to the park was awesome. I reminded me of my trip in Oregan along the coast. Lots of windy roads and twisties :-D
Very fun and you can keep the car in 3-4th and sometimes 5th gear :laughing:

Some of those turns where tight, really had to break and at one point even put the car into 2nd gear and it was revving at 5-6kish, lolz Sounded crazy nice tho...
Haven't really worked my car too much lately... It was nice to actually hear the engine roar a bit while having musik on =P
