I got Stiffer...

Adjustables that is... What were you dirty lot thinking? Believe it or not, these are my first set of proper shock & spring combo. I've always ran on cut springs, aftermarket springs and chopped absorbers, although I advise all others not to do so (I'm too cheap not to!).
Anyways, regards to Hyper Racing and HWL for kitting Silver with these awesome uprights!Fer fitted them in with the initial settings at mediocre everything and I went for a drive, but came back unappeased... So we (actually Fer did all the work whilst I blabbed away) readjusted and went for another test.
Was I satisfied? Look at the pic below and tell me what you think...
Off it all came and readjustments were warranted... We must've done this same process at least a billion times, bringing the system lower, higher, stiffer and softer... I know... I'm a real pain when it comes to stiffies but what else is there in a car?
I finally settled on what I felt is the best compromise for muar, and it was already late into the night so we bade farewell... And more adjustments after work today! Yay for me!

hwl is quite a good brand. ive test driven my friends 1.3 wira and it made the difference. along with his larger 15 inch tyres from 13. the car was better than before, just slow, lol

Hey DN, ya man... The FC was just pure shite for gripping, but awesome for drifting around in that setup.

Hi Kev, it is indeed a reputable brand with excellent knowledge in what they do. Hyper Racing is the Penang dealer and we're in good ties with HWL. In fact, mine are a custom set to test out.

Hey buddy, great to hear from you. Hypertune's quite tight with us at Northern Touge. They're helping us out with the coverage and all media works.

The fronts are running on 14kg/mm springs, you dun get much stiffer than that on the streets J.

Cheers!

Scav is now 14kg/mm stiffer, thats amazing

Hey DN, but with properly matched damping, it still feels comfortable on the road.
