Great review Grant.

I've been banging on about mine ever since I had them fitted.

I'm running ADO8's what tyres did you test them with?

I'm just running Eagle F1s at the moment, but run 888s on track.
I imagine on sticky rubber the effect will be compounded.

I had Eagle F1s a while back on stock Billies and found them a bit soft on the sidewalls.

I had the ADO8's on when I had the Ohlins fitted and the steering feel is so precise so I guess the R888's should be on par with them?

Still amazed by this kit.
Found myself choosing the EVO over my BMW to do all my journeys in over the last few days!

Our bottom adaptors/spacers are a light press fit into the damper. The top hole is an oval shape so that it matches the damper and the hole in it is also oval, meaning you still have adjustment for camber there as per OE.
They are made from HE30 aluminium and are not able to move, creating a solid platform for the 12mm bolt to pass through.
Drilling the hub is not something we recommend. Mitsubishi made the hubs 12mm for a reason.
We went this route for 3 reasons:
1) The hubs retaining the 12mm hole means that if you change to a different suspension brand later on and they are available in the 4/5/6 configuration you can fit the matching suspension again.
2) The adaptors can be pressed back out converting the dampers back to 7/8/9 configuration.
3) You do not need to purchase a 14.1mm drill bit and be ultra careful drilling the hub. If you do NOT drill the hole perfectly straight a side load will be placed on the bolt when it is located. This would be worse than using a bolt that's too short!



We can supply with the 4/5/6 top mounts. We didn't fit those on our own car as we feel there is no need, but will supply them with any kit destined for a 4/5/6.

We supply longer 12mm bolts to allow the correct thread engagement. The stock bolts from the 4/5/6 are too short.

We supply a bracket to locate the ABS wire and brake hose.

Our kits are fully assembled with springs, preload set, damping adjusted, ready to install with no further assembly needed.

Grant do you do them without the oval? Reason I ask is if you change a part on the car and you have to remove the bolts it would upset geometry, yes? Or am I talking 5h1t?

We considered doing them with an oval outer and round inner for that very reason, but reasoned that people would dislike the non-oe nature!! DOH!
We could make some with round inners though yes.

OK, 1 week on now.
Still amazed by these.
Did some slight tweaks to geometry yesterday (Thanks to FCM Alignment!) and fiddled with damping a ride height a little.
Overall, I can safely say that these are AWESOME.

Get some bought - you won't regret it!
