If you want performance go megans

Mine were not dropped all the way due to that they were the old springs a bottomed out if you went too low.


The r53 was on 17" if that helps
and the clubby are 16

Welcome.
If you're looking for a good drop, then V-maxx is the choice for you.
I'm using Billies B14 on my Clubbie they're quite a comfortable ride and they're all the way to the top.

My old R56 on V-Maxx, It was a little stiff, but I was going for appearance, not track performance, but never had any complaints about it

^^Very nice MINI! Looks like a healthy drop, the rims are 17 or 18?? Just for reference...I prefer "stiff" to "bouncy bitch" haha

Searching on the web I found that the coils i've posted on page 1, like Megans, go for a conservative drop, like 2 1/4" and Vmaxx goes to 2.5"-3" more or less. Im going for Vmaxx knowing I don't want a mega drop but it's better to have that extra "drop" in case of emergency...

Nice choice in wheels, although those only come in sizes 18 or above. I have the 2 piece meisters and they look much better in person. Check out my garage thread for more photos. (click the blue "Daisy" in my sig for the link)
