His previous coilovers? Megan Racing.
Your argument here is sorta flawed here and im gonna throw it up as the driver getting more experience then the dampers for the 3 seconds..
in the video hes averaging around the 1:40-1:44 range at sow cw... most stock sti's will run a 1:35 range at this track. so you can see that if we're using your example a lightly sprung stock shock is better then a coilover on the track.
If this was a car running 1:25 and shed 3 seconds.. different story. Altho i do love my kw's.
