Hm. You know, if you hadn't given that picture a caption, I think I would've gotten really confused.flyvtec said:Whole car:
Cutting springs is the perfect solution for people who want the slammed look while keeping the stock ride. It's cheap, and you don't get any wanky higher spring rates. In fact, by keeping the stock soft spring rate, you get better feedback from each wheel, and you can better gauge the balance of the car at the limit. By transferring more weight, you can corner harder and put the power to the ground better. The key to proper suspension tuning, as all good racecar engineers, is in the bumpstops. If you can properly tune your force to displacement curve, you can maximize tractive effort without affecting the amount of road harshness you transmit to the cabin. The suspension will be more compliant over midcorner bumps, keeping the car settled better, and the tires can therefore grip harder. You can also keep the stock damping ratio, which was already optimally engineered for overshoot, rise time, and settling time. What more could you ask for?OwAce said:take a flame torch and cut your springs. it costs you nothing if you DIY..
