    maybe this should be a poll but fuck it. I'm trying to pull some serious gs in my rex, apparently progress got over a 1.1 in a 4g hatch. anybody got any personal review shit they can hand down?

    They also tryed to do that with a honda del sol (go to google and search for traction control in a del sol) There goal was to get it to 1 g of acceleration AND still maintain diving comfort. Teins are a harsher ride but you will get more handleing out of them

    man, im so sick of hearing the term HARSH ride. IT'S NOT HARSH. it doesn't ride like a cadalac anymore, but shit- we aren't trying to build cadalacs, now are we? :lol:

    so B, are the teins as wonderful as you had hoped? i have been looking at suspension steups for my 5th gen coupe and was wondering if you had had a chance to get on a skid pad and tune those beasts.
