    Car: AE86
    Car use (e.g grip/drift): circuit/winding road
    Front Struts: GREDDY type S Coilovers
    Brakes: front hoppers stoppers kit using AU twin piston calipers and AU 290mm discs
    Spring Rate/ Free Height: 8kg/200mm (im guessing on free height)
    Inserts (brand/model): GREDDY front coilover
    LCA's: standard
    RCA's (size if you have them): cusco 30mm
    Strut Tops: GREDDY
    Front Sway Bar: custom 25mm adjustable
    Castor Arms: JIC

    Rear Springs: 6kg 200mm/Adjustable Platforms (guessing on free height
    Rear Shocks:GREDDY type S
    Panhard Rod: cusco adjustable
    4 Link: custom adjustable lower arms with nolathane bushes standard upper
    Rear Swaybar: Cusco 20mm

    Bracing:
    front cusco strut tower brace
    rear cusco suspension tower brace

    Pro's:easily adjustable, shocks and springs allways have full travel as each is adjustable independantly. on track fucking awesome, even on a medium setting there is bugger all roll. wound on full hard almost zero roll. plenty smooth when sliding if you want. ok for daily driving, medium setting spot on for winding roads and provides a good mix of no understeer, bump handling, roll and very neutral with a bit of subtle over steer.
    on track on with hard setting is extremely neutral, and is farily forgiving but nub it good and proper and it bite you in the ass (which my GF found out the first time at wakefield driving it)
    Con's: bit expensive initially but once properly setup fucking awesome. the electronic controller is waste of fucken time. so glad i didnt get it.
    they're not rebuildable..

    only thing i can see "unheard of in ae86 circles" about his setup, is the front rotors and calipers?

    Rotors and calipers are a bit different, although easily fited to any AE86 especially with a 5stud swap.
    Rear 4link is rarer but not unheard of.
