They still need to shorten the housings though.
Do you have the standard 135/335 pin to pin rear damper? If I remember right, the 4200 in pin to eye(1M/M3 and converted rear lower camber links) has a shorten housing for increase compression travel already.

I do plan to do some testing on softer secondary springs(I don't like to call them bump stops, because I don't use them as such) for better street manners and track performance.

Agreed. APEX Arc-8 very light track wheels and they look good too. Came to around $1200 for a new set when I was playing around with the shopping cart on their website.

So the last pieces of the puzzle arrived today..Rogue Engineerings sealed bearing rear toe arms...I was amazed at how light they are and the rubber seal surrounding the bearing will mean worry-free operation from dust and dirt contaminating the bearing.

Nice!! Mine are on order and will take a bit longer as I wanted them black anodized.

How much camber do you plan to run in the rear? I will have it set to -2,5 degrees on my car.

megan racing products are basically bootleg shit. quality is no different than some generic stuff you find on ebay. what they did right however, is market the "megan racing" brand and have a bunch of the new generation honda-tech fanboys hype it up to the point where it's a "name brand". garbage.

What we are trying to solve is the rear toe change under load, which affects traction and rear stability.

The additional adjustment is just another benefit of installing these.

Correct leaded gas will damage o2 sensors and cat converters (if you have em ) Unleaded race gas is perfectly fine to use..

Shouldnt we all know this by now?
