Not arguing, I'm attempting to discuss all the possibilities either as they unfold or up front. All points must be considered, not just a select few. I don't believe the N-Cars.net forum wants to retain liability for any issue that may arise, due publishment and negligence. It then affects everyone here.@NULLOBANDITOCould you folks get back on topic and stop arguing?
I haven't read through the details, but as pointed out in the video it's been done, and from what I understand @MRunabout wants to do pretty much that.
The question is how, without breaking the OEM shocks.
EDIT: If I'm honest, I'd also love to get my hands on those WTCR Fastback's springs.
However, as I have derive from both of you young folks comments, you both have shown a succinct lack of overall knowledge and understanding about the subject your attempting to discuss. You're able to acquire far more from hands on knowledge and experience by regularly performing such work, than attempting to acquire it "Bench Racing "on forums.(No offense intended and I do mean in a peaceable manner )
No one said it can't or hasn't been done by someone with the proper equipment, knowledge and understanding. I'm pleased to be the one to inform your, they most certainly do. There is more than just compression and rebound the springs and perches have to endure and deal with directly.As has been said, the successful application of this same idea on many other platforms and the WTAC fastback N, which can be seen to use weld-on lower collars, demonstrate this can be done. The spring rate value has no effect on the static load transmitted through the spring and perch.
Otherwise talks cheap, anyone can do it. Action and works, speak far louder than words. This is exactly how we all learn, from hands on experience and those who understand such concepts entirely.Someone once said, "by engaging our hands in work keeps us gainfully occupied. Which will ultimately disengage our mouths."
