Cool First RC 350 F SPORT on COILOVER KIT !!!

Hey Guys i know the hot topic on the forums has been companies not moving forward with working on a full coilover kit on the f sport. Well here are a few pics of ANGIE on her new BC RACING COILOVER KIT. Being a local in miami i reached out to BC RACING and was able to work something out with them in order to get the ball rolling with them being able to start mass producing the kit. I just had the kit installed and have put around 400 miles on it already and can trully say that the ride is incredible. The kit has removed all body roll on sharp turns, it gives the car a mean look (to say the least).i'll try to get more pics up soon but you can see more on my IG under mfresh_21

enjoy guys and hang tight for the kit to hit shelves. feels good to be the first

AND THE ONLY REASON I DIDN'T GO LOWER IS BECAUSE ILL BE ADDING MY WHEELS NEXT WEEK =)

Angie looks sweet lowered! How does the ride comfort differ from the stock suspension? Would you say this is a more aggressive suspension system?

you lose the functionality of the different driving modes as far as the suspension goes right? I'm sure someone will come out with a sleeve kit to work with the oem suspension like. Sort of like how GTR guys get the KW kit.



Looks good lowered though. How's the ride?

Mickey the ride comfort obviously changes and is much more stiffer which in my opinion what these rcs need. one thing i truly disliked about the stock suspension is the body roll you get even when in S+ mode. IMO the only thing i was able to ever really tell the difference on in S+ mode was the perkiness of the throttle response and the aggressive gearing you would get.

arghsee350 Yes you do lose that the use of the electronic dampening system but this kit will come with 4 way manual dampening adjusters which allow you to set the dampening to your personal preference.

overall when you get a coilover kit you mainly do it for two reasons
1- Get an agressive stance for the car
2- increase cars steering response and handling.

this kit obviously does both very well and at the same time has sacrificed the cars comfort in the most minimal amount possible. Im very happy with the kit so far

there was more than enough room, i actually just put rims on it yesterday and dropped it another inch and half. i drove the whole car with no rubbing at all. (uturns, sharp turns, and fast breaking)

Amazing, love the fact that all body roll experience through the driving you've put your RC through is eliminated.

What aftermarket wheels do you plan on putting on in the coming days, weeks?
