Once I learned about the B12 set up it sounded right.

I was searching for a return of the solid, planted, communicative feel I enjoyed with the PSS10 set-up along with a bit quicker steering response and less sway/roll in the corners and less of a skipping sensation with chatter over bumps.

Essentially, all above desires were satisfied to an incredible degree with the B12 kit. My ride feels more athletic, composed, stable....but as well is just as if not more comfortable than with the stock sport suspension. I did not have to compromise comfort for performance --- actually gained in both areas. Very happy with this set up.
I am also driving the Houston roads. How does the B12 handle the constant cracks and small bumps all over these roads vs PSS10 and stock sport suspensions? Sounds good, but want to confirm. Any downside you have found yet?
