has any 1 got them?what do they think.my step bro has just spent 600 quid on them for his vr6 and i know they handle like crap but he said its v good now .so if i start with a great handling car how good will it be?
i read ktecs site and its says there kit drops the back 30mm thought u had to adjust torsion bar to drop the back of the car?

Unless yuo are going alot of track days i personally dont think its worth it.


You will end up running a 'copy' standard set up on the road anyway.

Lowering the back seems a bit gay. I thought youd want to drop the front slightly and run standard rears.

I'd say you must be looking at a mk2 kit if it's saying -30mm drop on the back...as it's torsion bar as you say. I have coilovers on my williams and rate them highly...if you give your williams some stick on the track or your current suspension is feeling a bit tired I'd recommend them! Ps don't take notice of stromba his willy never sees more than 2500 rpm! :wink: :D

It won't handle better on rough b roads as the coilovers will be a harder ride but will be a lot better A or B roads with a half decent road surface..IMO of course

martin - can't believe you were going them speeds with the petrol light on, that guy likes to live dangerously!!!

Where was it hitting the limiter at martin?

Coilovers are a shout, they will be on the list when willy track gets converted!

Loads of petrol left there mate...it came on during my top speed run! It did'nt actually hit the limiter either looks like over 7k on the dials but it just ran out of go at just shy of 150mph...
