Well there are several guys here in Southern Cal that are using the WA Upline. I have to say that I am looking into getting one. After studying what it does to the car, I have found that the Upline works really well under high bite conditions. The car actually visibly rolls more stable when the weight transfer goes from right to left or vice versa. The car does not get as upset when you need the body to roll quickly. Also the car does appear to allow the driver to push the car a lot harder on the long sweepers. Also the optional brake disc for the kit has some phenominal braking! It pretty much allows you to brake almost 40% later than the upgraded Mugen one piece disc and does not fade at all. As far as drawbacks....I have only chalked up two. First the upline chassis has some diffuculty adjusting to medium/low bite conditions. Probably has to do with the limitation of the droop geometry on the chassis. Second in order to accomodate the front hinge pin bearing holders you have to shave down your front bulkheads (a little bit of a pain). Other than that, I am basically waiting to tweak my current chassis so that I can use it as a n excuse to get an upline. Now as far as raffaelli's buddy selling it after one day, well I think you need to put a little more effort into using such an advanced upgrade. One day is just not enough, that and a little faith never hurts.
