Default MCS SHOCKS

We installed some dbl. adj. MCS with reservoir shocks on my car and was at Portland Int. Raceway yesterday setting them up. The car was fricken amazing. It turns in and holds a line so amazing now it feels like it has Hooziers on instead of Nittos. I also hooked up the rear sway bar for the first time since going to the bigger turbo setup, before I had to feather the gas coming off of the apex in most corners for inside rear wheel spin, now I can hit it as hard as the rear tires well hold which is a boatload more with ZERO wheel spin. I bested my best previous time by almost half a second at a 126 flat and the Temp. was almost 30* warmer, so I'm thinking low 25's maybe high 24's. I have to get used to being able to go in harder and get on the gas earlier now.
I can't say enough good things about Eddie and AR either. He was there to help tune them and has given nothing but great customer service from the getgo. I would highly reccommend both him and the MCS's as the car is actually a breeze to drive now, I don't have to work so hard to go fast.

Good to see you again old man, your car was looking amazingly fast. You and Mr Hyde looked to be about the fastest out there, with Laz a close 3rd, for 3-4 laps at least. You in particular seemed to make the chicane look like a straight line. Most impressive.

Curly Thanks for the kind words. Come over and say Hi next time, I didn't see you there. It was probably the MCS's that were making me look good, I can't believe how absolutely impressed I am with those shocks. Please come say Hi next time.

I talked with you for a half hour! You must be getting old...

Remember we laughed at Mr Hyde for breaking his cool suit?

Interesting to read. I think I saw your car at AR getting those installed then I met you a couple weeks ago at the HOD Ridge day. You surely won't remember that. The MCS sounds amazing and I'm sure Eddie appreciates your compliments.
