I did actually try them on full soft. This resulted in wheel hop from what felt like not enough rebound.

Also the delrin mounts transfer a boatload of diff noise. All sorts of clanks and bangs, especially on decel.
I actually thought something was making contact/breaking under the car because of how loud it was. "Clanks and bangs" are a very way to describe it. A very literal clanking and banging. Not sure how I feel about them at this point.

I've got a preorder on the blackbird "low NVH" standard height mounts, so hopefully there is some improvement there.

In case anyone has been following this build, this is the reason why the build hasn't had a whole lot of progress.

In case you're wondering, yes. It is awesome. It is very awesome. Purchased bone stock, single owner. 2005 MR.

It wasn't the cheapest thing I've ever bought, for sure. But it was well under the going rate for these condition Evolutions. Well under 20k.
