im a bit unsure of wat to do
i want to do the conversion becuase now im focusing on the way my car handles and it handles alrite but i could be happier in the top speed handling

like i already mentioned i have a bucket spoiler which gives me shit loads of downforce. You think the conversion is for me?

If it is giving tonnes of grip, you will get heaps more with the addition of the conversion since it will directly transfer the downforce instead of losing it in the suspension

Yes I think it will make a difference if the rear wing gives enough downforce.I can definately vouch for the fact my tyres are wearing better with this set-up.

The metal tube aligns the mount in the centre of the car.

NO you dont need it...something like a stand-off from an old computer would do the job .

The stock upper arms in the v-one-s DONT have turnbuckles they are just screws ..there fore you would have to pop the arm off everytime you wanted to adjust your rear camber. I would recommend buying turnbuckles just from a convenience point of view however you dont NEED to if you dont want to.

V-one s My prices were a pretty good guess hey!
