Love your car man! You have very tatsteful way of moding. Have you had time to see what difference all suspensions mods have done to your car? If so please state what it feels like. Thanks Bro! One again fantastic F man!
Thanks! As for the suspension here is the best way I can answer. Of all the cars I've had or built the HKS Hypermax III I have in the Supra and KWs have been the best riding suspensions I experienced to date. I was in what I thought was a jam because I wanted it all....my tires to fit, the car a bit lower, great handling and as good or if not a better ride then the Supra especially since i want this car to still be comfortable. The other thing is that I live in the Boston area and the roads are scary around here.
Figs assured me that I would be happy with the dampers, spring rates, ect. and it would perform to my liking. He knows way more about suspension tuning and ISFs then me so I did what he said and I couldn't be happier. The car has a nice ride with the damper as high as 25, the car handles great and my tires fit. It rides as well if not better then the HKS or KWs that I have to compare to and is softer then stock. So I highly suggest the BCRs with swift springs as well as all the other parts Figs offers.

Thanks, Zapa. It's never done!!! Right now I'm finishing the grill and trying to decide between matte black or SGM for the trunk emblems. My Figs/RB front rotors arrive tomorrow. I have to order rear rotors and track pads for them next. Over the winter I plan on doing the O.S. Giken diff., Extrude Honing the intake manifold and porting the Throttle Body.
Maybe some CF sides and a wald trunk in the future, who knows

^^^^ I ran a drill bit in to my **** because it would not thread any deeper without creating more space. Lou, where you able to thread the stock **** down further without drilling it or was that just with the F sport?
BTW how is that F sport ****? it looks nice in your car. I noticed a few people commenting on it coming apart after time but yours looks like it's held up well. I like that it matches the seats but I never picked one up because I didn't want it to separate after a while.

Yea, that's the plan. I'm pretty excited about learning how to drive this car on the track. Just working with Figs to make sure I have proper alignment settings. I also just received my Figs fornt brake rotors today so I just need to get the pads and I'm ready to learn how good or bad I can drive on a road corse

Thanks, I enjoy putting cars together as much as driving them so parts make things fun for me.
FIGS came through with another amazing upgrade for the ISF. Today I received the new FIGS Two Piece Rear Rotors to complete the full set. These rotors look amazing to say the least!
My Stoptech brake pads that will be handeling street duty also showed up today.
(If anyone wants to save some money on Wearever pads with less then 1k miles on them PM me )
I'm really going to make an effort to get these things installed and bedded tomorrow. Saturday I hit the drag strip for the last time this year and then I'm off to the Dyno with a few other ISFs from the area. Updates to follow...........
