I would not cut the front bumper back as it would shift the body and perhaps change the handling. Not that it is by much, but still different.

Easiest fix is to move the posts inward on the rear plate, perhaps make extentions to bolt on which will keep the rear of the body stable.

Default How can you colour the springs

Just count the winds.. or you can get lable paper(at office supply sotre ) and make little tags that you can attatched to springs.

or you can get nail polish or enamel paint and put a dot on it


I just count the winds its easy once you figure it out.

Shipments arrive Wednesday or Thursday. Hopefully shops will get their orders in soon as it will go fast. If you do not have a local shop you can call us directly to order one.

Spring Marking ...... just use some paint and put marks on the bottom coil. The plastic containers they come in are nice holders to keep organized or the clear plastic cases we now offer work perfectly.

I've used the practa paint on mine. I just put a stripe on the springs. As for the body mounts Just move them - you don't even have to drill a hole in the rear mount.I've run the Mazada 6 for several months and it hasn't moved yet.

Does anyone know if there are any other driveshaft bones that can replace the lightweight version that comes with the kit? I know MIP sells different versions listed below and need something that last longer.

MIP CVDs(constant velocity drives)
Shiny CVDs:
Aluminum CVDs:

I really don't understand why they don't do this.

Thanks
Well for 2 reasons
1 optics, itlooks better in 1 color....

2 most pro-racers at big(ger) events grind of the coating of their shocks to make it harder on the competition.


You can debate whether you agree or not with their reasons.

I personally count the winds by stacking2 springs to compare... It's a bit hatrder then color-coordination...

I always thought it was because if you use paint or powercoating it makes the spring action inconsistant by possibly not letting the spring work on it's own. Just a thought though.

You think too much....

Pretty much so other people can't find out what springs you are using.
