Default M.net GORD rant

How did this guy become a Moderator. He is one of the biggest doo doo heads on there. Want an ***, he wrote


("flush" is not a factor in how the car handles - that's strictly an appearance thing.

Yes, spacers will affect handling - especially huge ones like 25mm. They'll change the scrub radius of the front suspension, and the motion ratios of both front and rear, thus changing the effective spring rates. Could be good, could be bad - the trick is knowing which! Flushness by itself certainly is not a measure. For superficial, shallow, people who don't understand suspension engineering, and who judge based on appearance over any performance impact, perhap it's a worthy goal... )


A guy with cut springs must know something that the rest of the world don't.
He is such the Suspension expert.

Sorry I am now done with my rant.

It's funny how he tries to defend himself with technical talk on why he cut his stock springs.

Damn wine & cheese ricer.

Cut spings aren't necessarily bad. Depends on how you cut them and how much you cut off. Shortening the spring does in fact increase spring rate and it lowers the car.

The problem is that it isn't a very accurate way of doing things, I guess you could get the spring rate tested.

Anyway, he's a tool (Canadian to boot) but there are so many more valid and funny ways than cut stock springs to illustrate that.

Try again.

It would only increase the spring rate if it was a progressive spring, not if its linear. That said, I dont know what the miata is stock. Probably progressive just to spite me.
