So I had the R mapped last year at 400bhp and ive never felt safe  using the power so been driving it on low boost (350bhp)  .
And even at that it's all over the road on hard acceleration.
But that's because it was fairly standard suspension it had new standard  front shocks and gab rally rears .

Got some brand new BC  coil overs from jonny  2 weeks ago .
I fitted them the other day and all also fitted my whiteline 4point under body brace .

Set the ride height yesterday ( my god what a chore that is getting it right )
Had the geometry set up and got them to set  -1.3 camber .

Well fuck me it handles so well now its unreal .
Turns in lovely and just has endless amounts of grip .

Suppose it's all come together  nicely .

Suspension spec is
BC coil overs  all round set on softest on front and 10 clicks on rear
Cusco strut braces front and rear
White line anti dive kit
White line 4point under body brace
Seam welded front arms
White line anti roll bars
Fully poly bushed
Yokohama parada spec 2  in  215/40/17

I also had the wheels redone and now I think looks the nuts

that looks frikkin sweet mate!

I found the BC's I had on my last R were just too stiff and crashy. I'm currently rocking standard springs and shocks and much prefer the way it handles the "roads" up here. Probably different spring rates to what you have though...

slightly off topic but, what are those vents on the side of the front bumper off? I like them Very Happy

Spring rates are 5kg and 4kg and 3mm of pre load on springs .

The vents are from the rear 1/4 of a Nissan bluebird hatchback

I have the Whiteline under body brace, but I had to take it off. Even with my ride height set pretty high, I was hitting it on the asphalt all the time and now half of the bottom of it is ground away lol.
