Big single, twins, and a GT45 comparo at the end.

I wish he would have chose some different twins to test

Agreed.

He's trying to appeal to a crowd with testing, I'm in that crowd most of the time but not all of the time. I'd love to see him test twin 7875's, but he won't because it's not a street friendly setup. But it will identify something that is getting overlooked. And he has the motor and cam to do it, or he could get Tooley to throw him a Stage 3 or Stage 4 cam to spin it into the mid 8000 range.

Not enough carnage :banana:

If you wait a few months the new owner of my wagon should have his 'sequential' SXE364 and S483 setup running.

As much as I love boobies - I am re-railing this thread.

Ordered these today:

Yes, they are for a Honda Civic. The rear springs are said to be ~250lb/in, 6.1" free height, and a 2.6" ID. The maximum collapsed height (smash-town) is 5" once the frame is finalized, and there isn't a lot of room between the spring pocket and rail now (2.5" radius by my measurements). I estimate a 7" free-height spring would have been best. But, this allows me to add isolators to make up the difference at either end... or maybe even use the provided death collars?

some random dude in the Amazon review section said:
Large spring (front): O.D. 3.575", I.D. 2.620", Length 6.375", Wire O.D. .480", Spring rate @ 1" compression 450-500#. Small spring (rear): O.D 3.400", I.D. 2.600", Length 6.160", Wire O.D. .400, Spring rate @ 1" compression 250#. Adjusting sleeve: O.D. 2.275" I.D. 2.027, Length 4.730", Thread length 3.835" usable adjustment 3.165", Threads "Square" type (not Acme) looks like 1mm pitch. Adjustable Spring seat nut: O.D. 3.354", I.D. 2.320". O.D. where the I.D. of the spring locates 2.520". Top Spring seat (aluminum disc): O.D. 3.320". top hole 8mm. O.D. where the I.D. of the spring locates 2.435"

$65 CDN to the door gets me started.
