    I dont think he knew it never came with it. We are trying to sort it out and see if something works out and can make it have a radial and spherical upper mount,

    I'm sorry I thought this was Jesse's build journal...
    Let's try again.
    Hey GSXitement (not Bobby), have you ever used any other kind of suspension for your race car for your time trials?

    The KSports I have in the car now never had the coaxial mount. And every suspension I looked at besides the DG setup doesn't have them. So when I opened the box and saw they didn't have them, I reached out to Bobby for advice. He's been a huge help in getting the cars setup dialed in. I appreciate everything he does for these cars to make them get through corners well. So, I'm looking into getting the conical mounts asap.

    Feal 441, JIC FLT-A2, AMR and DG style Konis (like you mentioned) are the ones I've been looking/comparing. I used to have some old Tein Super Streets on my old GSX. (Never competed in that car like you do.)
    But I could shift the weight in a fun and dramatic under steering pig manner.
    I appreciate your response! Just shooting the breeze with you is all.

    The setup on the car, I actually went to heavier Swift springs cause the KSport springs rotted and were junk at that point. I went with 16K front and 14K rear with this setup. I emailed KSport about putting the coaxial mounts on. We'll see what they say.

    So, just got done sending emails back and forth with KSport. They said the shock should only be moving up and down. I guess we're gonna be re-engineering some stuff. No biggie. We'll make it better than what it is. And then show them. Lol

    Got the coilovers in yesterday. Did a little experiment. I have video but it's too big to load on here. But I did take some pics. Working on ways to make the suspension better. Lowered the car an inch. Didn't align the car as I was beat by the time we got it done. Definitely should be interesting next season.

    Yes. You read that right. Next season.

    The last race for us is Lime Rock on October 6th. That's a week before my wife's due with our first baby. So, after some discussion, we decided against going to LRP. There's no chance to get the championship. So it'd be better to be home just in case baby comes early.

    So that's the season. I'm happy that it seems that when the car cooperates, we win. So hopefully next season we can straight out and return to this. Screenshot_20180916-000043~2.png

    Not too many updates. Cleaned the garage up a bit. Got the car in there. Since we're not going back out till next season, I figured I'll put the old girl in the garage so she can spend winter in somewhat warmth/covered. Still going to get a new car cover, wash/detail the car really well. Got some issues/upgrades to work out over winter, so I'll take a look at that stuff in between diaper changes LOL. But for now....pics. IMG_20180920_222729_019.jpg IMG_20180920_214742_443.jpg IMG_20180921_115424_677.jpg

    Random question because ive got some old Ksports like yours with one being "blown". Have you ever rebuilt yours? Maybe I missed a post L O L

    No. I got a quote from Feal to rebuild them, but the cost was about equal to new set of coilovers so I just got new ones.
