hi guys its been a long time..^^
nice article brent, very informative..

well after 3 years of experience in driving, medyo nakaka relate na ko dun sa mga terms hehe..

i would just like to ask, nag lowering spring(h&r) kasi ako for my car, but..medyo kapos sa budget, so i just bought a gas-filled(kyb) shocks...ask ko lang kng ok ba ung mga gas shocks?

and here's another question, since i usually ride alone in my car, i noticed na mas mababa ung heigt sa left side compared to the right side, i rememberd i asked it already here, but that was 2 yrs ago pa ata..from what i remembered sabi nila switch ko lang ung springs ko sa left to the right...ok lang ba un? applicable ba sya for the front and rear springs?

thanks..^^

hey mate, kyb shocks are quite good. i had them on my last car and to answer your question gas is good except if you use them for track days then you obviously will need to upgrade to coilovers.

as for the difference in height, most cars if not all, will be slightly different providing the lowering springs used are off the shelf. there are alot of factors that influence this such as more weight on one side (steering, fuel tank etc), just how it is, involved in an accident or chassis flex. the only way you're going to get a flat out height is if you get your springs compressed or cut or better yet get some adjustable coil overs.

This may be a little advanced or even irrelevant to your application but bear with me, pls.
   
Actually, for me, what's more important is how the car will handles rather than how it will look when it comes to ride height in each corner.   We tried setting my car for an even-ride height with my coilovers and it handled terribly.   I spun in an autocross and was really unstable.   What is more impt is corner-weighting.   That's when you try to get the diagonal corner weights or crossweights equal to each other by adjusting the ride heights.  In other words, the weight of the front-right + rear-left = front left + rear-right.   Whne we did this, my right side was higher than my left side.  Looked wierd but when it came to my race.  Wow!  I broke the course record by almost 3 seconds without any other adjustment.

i know you can't do this to your car but I just wanted you to know that having even ride heights won't necessarily give you a safe and stable ride when it comes time you will need it.

Adjusting and playing with the ride height? You're the MAN!
Beating a record @ 3 seconds is a great thing! Hmmm... nagpractice ka sa grand turismo bago sa tsikot mo noh? hehe 8)

I'm kinda average in GT.  Some say it's accurate but I drive by the seat-of-my-pants, feeling the car, the g's and the noise of the tires and engine.  Hard to get that with PS or PC.  nothing beats track-time

The adrenaline rush is very different in FPG like GT. A slight modification setting is felt. It is a controlled environment.
I agree with the fact that everything you do in GT cannot be done in real life. Maybe, practice on ps2 like memorizing tracks and speed bumps and traps and some suspension settings.
How i just wish real cars are as durable as virtual ones. :)
