Default Silver WRX Wagon with Tein Wagon coilover and Rota Subzero

Ride height set to 3 finger gaps all around. Notice in this tight turn, even with the 280/163 spring rate, the car looks very balanced. I still can't explain the strange 280/163 spring rates for the Tein Wagon, but during my day at Willow Springs, the car handled very well with a slight touch of understeer which made it easy for me to throttle steer around the constant radius turns.

Specs for the search engine:

Silver WRX Wagon
Tein Wagon Coilover
Rota Subzero 17" x 7.5"
Bridgestone S03s 225/45/17
Vishnu Stage 0

Tein Wagon Coilover! How is the performance? It is nonadjustable right and how much you paid for it?

Default price is unbeatable. performance is perfectly matched to the car.

In a group buy, I paid less than $900 shipped to my door. Some sellers include Z1 Performance, GermanAutowerks, etc... I got mine from Z1 Performance (Adam). I couldn't be happier with Z1.

I didn't get sway bars installed before my track day. At first, I was worried because of the body roll and the rubbing I was getting. This has been discussed in my other posts. However, after raising the car in the rear by a bit, all of the rubbing went away.

At the track, the car was amazingly neutral with just a tad of understeer - very little plowing as compared to stock struts and springs with RE92s (experienced at AutoX). I was able to take turn 2 at Willow Springs at 78 mph up to 82 mph if you drive the tire to the limit and jerk back and forth to recover from the tire's limit. Near the limit, you can throttle steer the car by lifting the throttle to turn in and adding throttle to drift out.

I can't see how dampening adjustment could have made any noticeable difference for me at the track. If there were a dampening adjustment, I'm not sure I'd figure out where to set it. Maybe a more experienced driver would benefit from adjustable dampening. Tein has done a good job making the Wagon Type coilovers a good performing coilover for daily driving as well as track or autox. For the money, you can't beat it.
