            Jeez, that's nice. Are the springs and perches sourced from GC? I would love a setup like this, but I think still being on stock KA power is a more pressing concern. Tweaking DA dampers would be hell too, I need more experience to be able to have any degree of success doing that.

              The springs and perches are sourced from Ground Control, but you can use others as well. Dampers still go a long ways even on an underpowered vehicle. With good tires and proper suspension on it you should basically be able to drive flat out pretty much all the time.

                  My track car is also my street car and dampers do nothing to make it more fun to drive around town though. I have Stance coilovers too, which for sure aren't the greatest, but they'll do for now. Stock KA power won't

                    i beg to differ in that department. My Koni's with springs rates that are more stiff than your Stance's...ride considerably better on the street. (they also handle better=)

                      Monty, I'm game for these down the road when I am able to outdrive my AGX's or they die, whichever's first.

                        Over the next month I should have about 10 complete sets ready to go...which = no waiting=) For the S13 I'll be setting them up 8611 F/ 8610 R (but you can easily opt for an 8611 in the rear as well.

                          I actually prefer my AGX's on the Sentra (at the proper ride height) to the Silkroad coilovers I have on the car right now. The only issue that I had with the AGX's for the S13 was that you couldn't lower the car at all and the aftermarket springs were not stiff enough for my liking. Richard... don't forget the 8610F/8610R combo for the S13 ; -)

                            Ok, ok...you can opt down for the 8610/8610 setup too=)

                              How they looked before it started.=) Here's a few tubes freshly cut (but not cleaned up) and getting ready to make their way to the machinest to be threaded. This is what the wood was there for as well...
