Default Is this good or bad?

Well obviously I need some new shocks - so much for the Koni Yellows - time to give 949 a call on some Xidas - if my credit line isn't maxed... dam - so much to buy, so little cash

The best takes 2min to rebound - the other about 5 min.

So first you break your transmission and then you break your Koni's. I think you need to give me your car before you break anything else on it.

Dunno to honestly tell the truth - for all I know I could have been driving them this way for a while and just compensating for it. It wouldn't suprise me if it did bottom out as the spring rates are 500F/300R, which is soft for the track. I was yanking the control arms to install new bushings which gave me the opportunity to check them out. Haven't removed the fronts yet. I'm excited really - now knowing I was tracking on a broke-*** setup has me stoked about installing a real setup - it will be a different car after.
