Racecomp Engineering Tarmac II Coilovers

Don't settle for anything less



shown with Racecomp Front Camber Plates and Rear Pillowballs

This is the exact same kit used by the Subaru of Gwinnett team, who had the highest placing Subaru Impreza in the 2007 One Lap of America ....the ultimate test of performance, durability, and driveability.

For 4 years, RCE has been regarded as the authority on suspension and brake components in the Subaru Impreza community, focusing on the track day and hardcore enthusiast.

With much success in coilover sales and properly mating end users with a suspension that best suits their needs, Racecomp Engineering has again filled the gap and addressed the niche market of the Impreza STi version model years 2004-2007 (including 02-07 WRX and GC8 Impreza) with the introduction of their own threaded body dampers (coilovers).

Reviews are finally popping up across the internet for this highly anticipated solution for users desiring the ultimate in performance and ride quality. A small sample of the reviews we are hearing from customers:

I believe r-compounds will allow me to fully use what's available with the coilovers...that's soon as I'll use my autox tires/wheels for the next HPDE...
Trailbraking led to a very controllable rotation and track-out was "push-free". It was strange, I tried to find a situation where the car would fight me...not do what I wanted...and I was not able to find that! Turn in was immediate, mid-corner hold was high and when it slid it was very neutral, and track-out had no "push"...it was just a very comfortable 4-wheel slide when traction broke = VERY EASY TO DRIVE.

Without a doubt, the Tarmac2s with the 500/400 rates are a transformative modification...the car has become an animal, and why I now call her the "Grey Dragon"...due to the predatory-like abilities of the car. I am growing very fond of this STI...

My initial impression was that of great surprise. These honestly did not feel any harsher than the stock setup. But this was on my local roads that are in very good condition. I wanted to see what happened on my first trip, which was to lovely Secaucus, NJ.

My job in Secaucus forced my to take some of the most chewed up roads I have ever seen, as the Company is in an industrial park which is dominated by large trucks. This suspension soaked up every pothole it could find. Nothing harsh. No noise. Kidneys in tact. In fact, I really think in some ways it is BETTER than the stock struts, especially for smaller and medium size hits. I am just amazed.

This is also where I was SO HAPPY that I ordered from RCE. Each time I was unsure as to how to properly proceed, I just made a quick call the RCE, and Andrew or Mike walked me through. They were always available, and very happy to help. I know there are a lot of great vendors on here, and I am sure many of them would do what RCE does. But through the entire process I felt like I was speaking to someone with DIRECT knowledge of the product, especially concerning installation and setup. I would have had a much more difficult time without their expertise, so for me, this really made a HUGE difference.
The real hard part in designing a suspension system is finding a balance between ride quality and performance. Unlike a 1 way adjustable damper adjusting only rebound, or worse, bump and rebound at the same time, a true 2 way damper allows you to have vastly different set-ups for both street and track. Neither is a compromise with the other, and you can really get the best of both worlds. Couple this with advanced German valving and loads of travel that you won't find on JDM and Chinese coilovers, and you've got a suspension that rides better then a stock STi.

A little bit about customer service and support after the sale. We are available at all times of the day, after hours, and on weekends. We can walk you through an install if you're stuck in your garage or we can help dial in the perfect handling you're looking for when you're at the track.

We are now offering these coilovers preassembled with any configuration of top mounts available. The standard spring rates for the Tarmac 2's is 500lbs front and 400lbs rear. We do offer a variety of spring rates, either higher or lower to fit your specific needs.

Available for:
2002 - 2007 Subaru Impreza STI, WRX sedan, WRX Wagon, and 2.5RS
1993 - 2001 Subaru Impreza Coupe, Sedan, and Wagon

MID-A ONLY PRICE:
Coilovers preassembled with Front and Rear STi Group-N Mounts: $2249 picked up OR $2598 installed
Coilovers preassembled with Racecomp Engineering Front Non-Lowering Camber Plates and Rear Pillowball Mounts: $2599 picked up OR $2948 installed

Racecomp Engineering Yellow Springs

The ultimate lowering spring for your STi




Racecomp Engineering is proud to offer the RCE Super Sport Street/Track Springs (RCE Yellows), an OEM replacement spring for 2004-2007 Subaru WRX STi. Designed for use with standard STi inverted struts or Ohlins Fixed Perch Replacement Struts, these springs are intended for both the daily driven street driver as well as the autocross and track day weekend warrior. Spring rates are 295lbs front and 275lbs rear.

Also a perfect spring for a WRX with upgraded struts!

A sample of the reviews and feedback we've heard from customers:

Cornering is flat and turn-in is accomplished with knife-like precision. The car is transformed. In addition to feeling the power of the STI, it now feels like it has the control to match.
MID-A ONLY PRICE - $299 picked up OR $479 installed!!!

Racecomp Engineering Regular Guy Springs (RCE Blacks)

The long awaited "mild drop" high performance spring for your STi



Introducing the RCE Regular Guy Springs (RCE Blacks), an OEM replacement spring for 2004-2007 Subaru WRX STi. Designed for use with standard STi inverted struts or Ohlins Fixed Perch Replacement Struts, these springs are intended for both the daily driven street driver as well as the autocross and track day weekend warrior.

Also a perfect spring for a WRX with upgraded struts!

Using similar spring rates as the extremely popular and successful RCE Yellow Springs, but having a much more subtle/mild drop in comparison, these are perfect for STi owners not looking for a ride height much lower then stock, and yet are still looking for increased spring rates. Spring rates are 285lbs front and 269lbs rear.

MID-A ONLY PRICE - $299 picked up OR $479 installed!!!

Racecomp Engineering Street/Track Wagon Springs

The ONLY high performance spring designed specifically for the Subaru WRX Wagon with upgraded struts



Finally, an option exists for Subaru WRX Wagon owners with upgraded struts!

Rather then having to choose between spring rates that are too soft (most wagon specific springs) and a saggy rear end (most sedan specific springs), Racecomp Engineering is proud to announce an OEM replacement spring for the 2002-2007 Subaru WRX Wagon.

Designed for use with standard STi inverted struts, Koni Inserts, Tokico D-Spec struts or Ohlins Fixed Perch Replacement struts, these springs are intended for both the daily driven street driver as well as the autocross and track day weekend warrior. Using spring rates of 278lbs front and 259lbs rear, but having a wagon specific ride height, these are perfect for wagon owners not looking to compromise either ride height or spring rates.

Designed with direct feedback from wagon owners, these are THE solution for Impreza owners looking to prove what a properly set-up wagon with upgraded struts can really do!

MID-A ONLY PRICE - $299 picked up OR $479 installed!!!

Dragicon, I'll be having RCE blacks installed at RCE on Saturday and my car is white which should make it easier to tell the drop. I have an appointment already so I'll post up pics then aside from anything Drew has.

Beautiful! I will respond to your PM on IWSTI sometime soon, but long story short, they are overlays. Cannot wait for the blacks pics. You still on stock rims?
