It's a custom build set, so yes. It's valved accordingly. The Challenge mini's run the same spring rate so we took that as a starting point. Suspension wise I have a few more tricks up my sleeve. But I'll let you know in due time

wow. hope you beef up the mounting area... rates that high on the strret make me think you wont have so much of a mushrooming issue as you will have a strut blowing through the hood kind of problem.

but yes your car becomes more epic with every post

Today was a productive day. Striped the gearbox.

Very dirty gearbox.

Those should ride really well. Those are close to the rates we were speccing for the custom struts that we were having manufactured. They rode better than any coilover I've ridden on.

awesome updates! How did you get those snap rings out? Did you have to remove the gear shafts first then those came out from the inside?

Jealous. Are those Giomic parts or did someone else start making them too?
