    Car use (e.g grip/drift): Drift
    Front Struts:Tomei S13 Coilovers, Apexi Springs
    Spring Rate/ Free Height:8/9kg, 200mm?
    Inserts (brand/model): No idea.
    LCA's:MX62 (Fresh bushes/joints)
    RCA's (size if you have them): None ATM.
    Strut Tops:Tomei
    Sway Bar: Stock, don't see the need for an uprated one either.
    Castor Arms: Stock for now.


    Rear Springs: Falcon 200mm ATM.
    Rear Shocks: TRD Blue
    Panhard Rod:[/B] Whaaat?
    4 Link: As above.
    Sway Bar: Stock - To be upgraded to adjustable.

    Pro's: More Lock then stock, bigger, better brake options and more Track. Car is pretty slammed and handles great, no noticeable bumpsteer.
    Con's:To much track with rims bigger then 7's needs S13 LCA.

    Extra Comments: This setup really needs a 6/7k Spring rate in the rear end and some sway bars and front strut brace will be added shortly

    Car: sprint
    Car use (e.g grip/drift): drift
    Front Struts: ae86 coils
    Spring Rate/ Free Height: 8kg
    Inserts (brand/model): dunno
    LCA's: corona
    RCA's (size if you have them): -
    Strut Tops: cusco

    Rear Springs: ajps 210mm 6kg
    Rear Shocks: crapodore monroe shocks

    Pro's: (when aligned) steering is very responsive, sits at a very acceptable height for a daily atm, although it is bumpy on shit roads, it still is soft enough to leave my spine in tact
    Con's: quite bumpy on shit roads, needs an alignment

    Extra Comments: i like the lack of power steering in my car as i think it gives more feel through the steering coupled with all the sus work, ill be getting new sway bars and rear shocks when my K Rudd bonus comes in the mail

    Car: JDM AE86
    Car use (e.g grip/drift): Both with a tendancy for the sideways
    Front Struts: Deed coilovers
    Spring Rate/ Free Height: 8kg front 10kg rear, ?
    Inserts (brand/model):
    LCA's: stock
    RCA's (size if you have them): none
    Strut Tops: Section camber tops
    Rear Springs/Shocks: Deed Coilovers. They are inverted to fit into the std rear shock mounting

    Pro's: The whole setup is adjustable to the settings I want/need to drive the car fast
    Con's: I wish there was rear camber so I could set it up to go faster

    Extra Comments: Theres also a full set of whiteline adj. sway bars as well set to max stiffness with a full nolathane bushing upgrade on the way. Its been an experience to set up a car this light with a solid rear axel. Have never dealt with old gemies and escorts so this was my first time at it. Hopefully with good tyre choice and the right driving style I can get this to run as fsat or faster then most things on the street.

    Car: AE86
    Car use (e.g grip/drift): want a fast track car which i can setup quickly for drift and hill climbs.
    Front Struts: hks hypermax D's
    Spring Rate/ Free Height: 8kg now, have 6 and 11's in the tool box
    Inserts (brand/model): HKS
    LCA's: shortened s13 (needed to fit 15x8 -3 under the guards while still being low)
    Strut Tops: Cusco
    Rear Springs/Shocks: 6kg ATM, have 4 and 9 in the box. pug 909 shockers upgrading soon

    Pro's: adjustability, brakes, lock, no slop, strength.
    Con's: the local tyre place scratching their heads when it's time for alignment. I'll tell you when i drive it.

    Extra Comments: good tyres, all bushes replaced, t3 panhard, pillowball castor arms, traction brackets, cusco strut brace, swaybars, rear brace, seam welded, chassis strengthened and a few other things.

    Car: AE86
    Car use (e.g grip/drift): daily, hills, the odd slide
    Front Struts: Coilovers on 86 struts
    Spring Rate/ Free Height: 8kg, lowest height
    Inserts (brand/model): KYB GT4 shocks
    LCA's: XT130
    RCA's (size if you have them): 30mm T3 I think
    Strut Tops: Cusco

    Rear Springs: 210mm 6kg
    Rear Shocks: TRD blue 8way

    Pro's: Rear feels very nice. Not unbearably stiff. Grips well, will slide when you want.
    Con's: Little bit bouncy in the front, would want it lower in the front, little bit of roll in the front.

    Extra Comments: Ideally needs some thicker sway bars and different front coilovers, the shocks are shit and coilovers wont go low enough.

    Car: AE71 Spirit
    Car use: Street/Grip
    Front Struts: AE86
    Spring Rate/ Free Height:6kg, not sure of free height.
    Inserts (brand/model): Koni Sport ST185
    LCA's: XT130
    RCA's (size if you have them): 30mm Techno Toy Tuning
    Strut Tops: AE86 Tein Cambertops with the correct caster for ke70 for some reason. Just got lucky. Must be for added caster on AE86.
    Caster Arms: Standard
    Bushings: Mixture of Nolathane, and Super Pro. All of them have been changed.
    4 links: standard
    Panhard Rod: Whiteline Adjustable on car
    Rear Springs: Cut standards
    Rear Shocks: TRD Green 8 way (kyb)
    Swaybars: Whiteline f & r. 22mm front, 17mm rear. Non adjustable. You can get some sort of adjustment with looser or tighter D bushes on the rear. Tight for drifting, looser for grip. I install oversize bushes to stiffen it up.

    Pro's: Has a quaife Rack installed, very neutral steering, turns in hard. Very adjustable damping and ride height. Comfortable to drive in as its got travel and droop.

    Con's: Has a little bit of bump steer since I lowered it an extra 10mm, but is easily manageable. Had basically none before that.

    Extra Comments: It cannot be any higher than the ride height its at, or the inserts can sometimes top out. Thats why it went down 10mm recently. Cater set in mid 3s. Toe neutral.

    Bracing: Ultra racing fender and rear 4 point braces. Cusco strutbrace up front.
