I wonder what i.d. and length those Raceland spring sets are? It would be nice if the QA1 springs fit with a single long spring instead of the two-spring setup they come with.

I'd be compelled to buy them them if I could see a shock dyno, then if they don't look up to snuff, sell them on cr.net

If we got 11 people to donate 20 dollars... Then after they are dyno'd we can paint rainbows and unicorns on them and sell them on cr.

Normally that would be retarded. But they're about us says its an open door policy. So I just thought i would test it. If i do get the latter pic. I will never buy from them, as if i would in the first place. I have been out of the suspension loop for a while. So whats up with the Godspeed stuff? Also, this Yonaka Mazda Miata 89-98 Adjustable Coilovers NA MX5 1G : eBay Motors (item 310198736511 end time Mar-06-10 09:15:14 PST) Yonaka? I think i will just pony up for some more expensive stuff. I have always liked Tein, even though half of the people say they suck for miatas.

The Yonaka stuff is actually really good. I haven't used their miata coilovers but their Integra coilovers were awesome.

I'm tempted to try the racelands, but I honestly am perfectly happy with my current suspension setup. I have GR2's with Tein S-Tech springs. .75 drop in the rear, 1.1 in the front. They don't bounce...

They looked fairly nice, but everything is priddy in ebay pics.
