I know race testing has been on done on multiple drift cars, as well as other NASA/SCCA racing vehicles. On the shock dyno, I can gather that info for you. I myself am a huge fan of JRZ/Moton etc. I too was a hater of Stance back in the day, but after meeting with the owner, running their suspension on our cars, employee cars, we have really turned around our previous thoughts. As well, I have first hand toured the KW factory in Germany, and must say, I know what it takes to create a quality proper competitive coilover. I understand that the facility where Stance is made is not near what I saw at KW Germany, but their products have made winning teams succeed. For instance, Mike Bonanni ran Stance GR+ coilovers in his 350z Unlimited and took 2nd to my knowlege two years back. There are other competitors doing well with Stance, and we plan to keep working with them to further develop the suspension for the STI. I must say, the GR+ are not perfect for the STI, but with more input from our driver and team, we will move to a product that is on a competition level of those aformentioned. It is the goal of THMotorsports to decifer the good from the bad, and what purpose a certain suspension serves. We want to know that what we offer, can be used for racing if needed, and here we are to prove it!

Thats my Saturday night .02

Happy Motoring,

JRZ/Moton/KW> stance.

They don't use a shock dyno at all in their development or facilities. I don't understand how you could do the proper amount of research and development without that tool, even more so on a 3 way set-up.

Drift cars shouldn't even be talked about in a Time Attack or Road Race thread, let alone a suspension thread. I sure as hell wouldn't put a drift engineered piece on my car.

Best of luck to you and the car, I'm sure it will turn out nice. As soon as you get sick of the bottom of the podium, give Myles a call
