    this is from the customer feedback thread laurence. originally posted by matt99
    Chris and I set the shockworks stuff up in my track car before round two of the VicDrift championship.

    During practice the car had much more grip, to the point where my 250rwkw wasnt enough to turn the 195's properly in the 86. I then played with the adjusters (adjuster's that actually do something, what a godsend) and got the suspension to a point where I could probably turn a 265mm tyre with a standard 4K KE70, then I found a happy medium for drifting and the car was perfect.

    The front is also notably much more responsive and the wheels actually stick to the road, unlike before where they simply bounced as they wished.

    Very, VERY happy with my set up. Thanks Chris.
    and thats with the standard 6/4 spring rates.
    does anyone in qld have a shock works setup to show Laurence? personally i'd say anything more then the stock springs would be overkill, the dampers are that good

    more valve coding i think, my 86 is one of the test cars they use to fine tune the suspension setups, constantly improving the product.

    Awesome, just what i like to hear, as apposed relying on consumer request/complaints then react, or a slap it together and "yeah that should work" philosophy.
