I have HKS Hyper dampers fitted to my RS and would like to know what kilo springs you guys run. I have pillow ball mounts on the front.

After reading what you guys say about lowering the car to much , makes me think I may have gone to low, I have the car dropped as low as I can, running on 18 rims though.

The group A cars run very low.

Scutty

Paul,
How are You?

Your drives pretty steep as well!!
How fars your front spoiler and side skirts off flat ground level?
With all the speed bumps around these days ,I often catch my lower spoiler.36MM front drop.
What profiles you got on the tyres ?
sounds like you have a touring car now !
Do you get any scrub in the wheel arches?

Does the pillowball upper mounts are making noise or are them ok?

I have proflex gr.n with 57kg front and 45kg rear.

I run Proflex 57kg front and back (what's the difference when running 45, Maxi?). I asked a WRC mechanic why Group A cars run so low and the reason is that they run a completely different suspension when on tarmac (the same goes for all surfaces) than our cars. We cannot compare our cars to Group A, as there is a world of difference. Group N is comparable though. Now, as to how low you can go. This is again the opinion of the WRC man and a suspension guy from West London: If you go lower than the wishbones being at least parallel to the anti-roll bar, your suspension loses quite a lot of it's designed funtionality. Try drawing a few vectors and you can see how pushing forces turn into pulling forces, etc.. Also, check how far your dampers are of their stoppers, as it can easily happen that you get to their limits (the standard one's that is). I had some _really_ bad lowering springs on my car which took my inner wheelarch out when driving hard. You will know if your car rides on the stoppers, as it will understeer like a shopping trolley.

MAXI's car is literally JUMPING! http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >
Seriously, Maxi, get your dampers checked out, they're old. If your car is too hard in the back, you oversteer easily (|EQU|not very efficient but very fun! [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle > ). In rallying, they normally have softer springs in the back, actually just like Maxi (for dirt that is, because they have slicks).

Take care (when sliding)

Claudius,

You're right my proflex need servicing!
I will do it soon,but I'm just waiting to order a complete set of ralliart silent blocs and maybe the HKS pillow ball top mounts to fit them at the same time.

Anyway even if my EVO V (RS!!!)is jumping a little bit,that's not a real problem.
Now you have got two evo vi,but the black one is just too heavy and completely standard apart the proflex at the front and the dynamics at rearhttp://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >,and you need to make a few more miles on the new one to be able to push it harder.

The silver TME looks really nice,but I thought that you boght it to prepare the engine at 500bhp or more with the cusco 2way lsd front and rear,ohlins,2.2L with bozz speed TD05/06 turbo kit,but now(as you did before with the black vi)you start again with the mmmmm....don't know....maybe for the moment I will just get a ralliart ecu with an exhaust.......maybe at 450bhp the fuel consumption is gonna be high..... .

But did you forget that you bought a new tme in the purpouse of get 500bhp with all the special parts? If you just keep it standard whats the point?

Well,maybe you're not really sure of beeing able to keep 500bhp under control[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Maxi

Let s see what happens when I've run in the TME and we go for a ride on the corniches in the hills around Monaco. At least I REALLY have a front LSD, you've just been told you have one but still understeer http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle > [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle > [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Oh, BTW, the Dynamic suspensions will be given back to me soon, so stop talking BS
