    Why not? :proud: With the launch of the Pilot Sport 4, Michelin are aiming to get the Pilot Sport name back on track. The new tyre borrows lessons learnt from both the Pilot Super Sport, and Michelins involvement with the Formula E race series. This has resulted in a tyre which has a much...

    Michelin PS4

    Probably they introduce in these sizes for initial launch.. and later bigger sizes will come from europe.. once they start producing in asean countries, they'll make smaller sizes i'm sure. if they implement the PSS dna into PS4 then it will be excellent.

    My suspension dilemma

    Alamak.. after so much hype, ftuned ride quality isn't up to mark? (As far as street driving is concerned). they boldly claim that their product can match with big names and i do hope they can live up to their reputation. A lot of generic coilovers can achieve better handling simply due to...

    My suspension dilemma

    I must have missed in my post. I was trying to say that for the 1-way adjustable from BC, the shock dyno graphs look all the same, be it for honda, toyota, mazda etc. the valving looks similar across the board :biggrin: the case is different for their ER series because the compression and...

    My suspension dilemma

    A shock dyno is a shock dyno. It doesnt really tell how it will ride on a particular car. For example, all BC shock dyno looks the same. Their adjustable may work on a particular vehicle but not others (hint: generic valving). There are plenty of parameters to be considered when designing a...

    My suspension dilemma

    Comfort is not subjective but Tolerance is. Actually many people will agree when a suspension is comfortable or not. It's just the acceptance level is different because there are people who can tolerate uncomfortable drive and there are people who can't tolerate crap at all. I just hate the...

    My suspension dilemma

    Test drive lancer/inspira fitted with f-tuned or RCS.. and see which one you prefer. it's possible to have good handling with lots of compliancy on the road - it's the valving that matters. if you do not want high spring rates, tune the handling with thicker anti roll bars.

    Bridgestone Potenza RE003

    Just found out that japan uses JATMA rating :proud: JATMA - Japan Automobile Tyre Manufacturers Association, Inc. Seems like re003 wet rating only B.. good tires like advan sport v105 is A.. so we can expect re003 wet grip is so-so..

    Bridgestone Potenza RE003

    from japan's website, rolling resistance is C, and wet is B.. same as S001.. don't know what rating is this, definitely not UTQG.. got a report that size 195/55R15 is made in indonesia, so expect price to be not too expensive?

    Suspension setup question...

    From your requirements, just get the tein street flex and be done with it. at least it is something that works out of the box. when needed, tein is rebuildable you can get it serviced by a local tein dealer or other reputable workshop.

    15" R3 wheel weight?

    that's right.. forged doesn't mean it cannot be bent. advantage of forged rims is that it can be lighter than cast but maintain its rigidity. not necessarily it is more rigid than cast. even the daddy of japan rims (ce28n) can bengkok. just buy any good wheels you like.. just that forged rims...

    Matching sports spring with stock absorbers ...appreciate feedback

    looks lowered already.. you should have measured the height from centre rim hub to the fender edge, before and after.. this way you will know how much the springs lower your car. from the picture, the rear looks lower than front.. but this is probably due to the original setup is already like that:

    Matching sports spring with stock absorbers ...appreciate feedback

    None of the stamping indicate the spring rate.. those are just serial numbers. Most german makers (eibach, h&r, vogtland etc) don't really publish spring rates because they are progressive.. and they are secretive :hmmmm:

    Matching sports spring with stock absorbers ...appreciate feedback

    Did you put the springs side-by-side to compare the length? It'll lower after a few drive round the block.. but after a few days if the height has not lower, check the installation.

    Beware Of Fake "Made In Japan" Sport Rim !!!

    Stamping looks legit, all at the right places.. but maybe stickers are new? old Type-C logo is ugly, with big "C" blue circle the sticker on this wheel is like Type-C RS, but without the RS but why owner would use ori wheels with cap ayam tires? i'd be worried.

    Matching sports spring with stock absorbers ...appreciate feedback

    is 408 being sold in europe? if not, most likely there aren't any aftermarket absorbers from europe. 308 absorbers may fit, but will not give the optimal ride since the weight for both vehicles may be different.. unless you want to try :)

    Matching sports spring with stock absorbers ...appreciate feedback

    can't say for sure.. normal absorber's lifespan maybe 80k km.. so after paired with sport springs, lifespan may be shortened into half.. 40k to 60k km.. best if you can change all in one go.. the stock absorbers can keep in store or sell them off :biggrin:

    Matching sports spring with stock absorbers ...appreciate feedback

    It will be stiffer. Depends on your tolerance, you may or may not like it. H&R/Eibach is best if paired with Bilstein B8 absorbers.

    Do Ultra Racing Bars increase Car Safety?

    make sense, for example, if one install rear roll bar with bigger diameter than the front, there is a chance for oversteer. most 'bars' on the market are meant for improving the structural rigidity. 'safety' is probably an added benefit (if any). i don't see big names like cusco, j's racing...

    BC V1 Coilover [ZC31S}

    your rear springs look fine. none of them are binding.. how is the front springs being set up? the upper perch should be adjusted in such a way that it holds the springs without tension when the car is jacked up. springs should be snug enough without freeplay but still allows the spring to...

    BC V1 Coilover [ZC31S}

    Like i mentioned, you probably have too much preload.. or wrong setup at the rear, causing your shocks riding on bump stops rather than springs to control the oscillation. post some pics of the coilover on your car. lets see if we can sort it out.
