they are a bit soft. I think the car could easily use a few hundred pound heavier springs front and rear. i have 3kg front and 2.2 kg rear now, so thats like 166 front and 124 lbs now, i would like to see about 300 front and 250 rear at least, so double what they are now. the car is really well balanced, so it doesnt seem to need alot of rear spring on a road course (autox may be different.) anyways, without coilovers, i dont see that happening anytime soon so i guess i just have to leave it as is. right now, the most idea set up would be a front pair of tiger tec springs and rear S techs (so 4kg F, 3.5kg R), that would help, but could still use more spring rate.

Yes, 07 with 34000 miles. A huge chunk of the block came off, about the size of a big doritos.

And I don't know about the fit, he seemed quick but we were not in the same group.

im curious to know how they would do back to back with similar mods. i havent looked much into their aftermarket support, but i wouldnt doubt that its probably a bit stronger. i think stock for stock, a Fit sport would be a little quicker despite the weight disadvantage, but i dont know that for sure.
