^ awesome...is the aduster allen key center???

if so, ya source a long allen key and access to that adjuster would be easy!

Dallas based - "Metric and Multi standard" has really long allen keys..

ya know jason, i have never really paid attention to that lol. i don't think so though.

i can fit my arm in there with my old lmgt4's and now with the te37's so i never really had the need. both 18's and a 13" rear brake rotor--i'm not a little guy either. if i went to 17's i would have an issue though.

i'll take a look tommorow if i decide to wrench on it.

sorry for the delay, i keep forgetting about looking.

anyways, the adjuster wheel does not have anything in the middle that would accept a tool. it has to be turned by hand.

1. Moton Club Sport
2. True or Stock Style (can be configured either way)
3. $4490 thru SPL parts, MSRP is around $4800
4. Do not come with Upper mounts or Springs
5. 2 way adjustable (compression and rebound)

Other than that, i will be installing them this week. The upper adjuster in the rear has no extention so i will just cut the hole to get to them. The other adjuster on the reservior is as hard as you make it to get to. I still havn't figured out where to mount mine. They are fully adjustable, fully rebuildable and custom valving not a problem.

I have 12k front and 10k rears right now, and may be converting to true coilover.

I'm not going to lie.....I was seriously considering getting them myself. I even forwarded them to scott (scott300) to see if he had any interest. Glad they went to someone who will really use them. Again...great pick up for a killer price.

Scott is on a Truechoice Phase IV setup that has excellent valving with the same adjustablity. Hard to beat something that was setup by a Grand am team doing the R&D. Though the moton's would likely have the advantage of having less hysterisis and the ability in a revalve to shape the damping curves to a greater degree. But then again the Truechoice setup is dialed in quite well out of the box.

I wasn't really sending it to Scott for him in particular, but for the west coast z racers.

Also shown in post 40, Here are more pics of the Hypermax 3 sport coilovers:

Spring rates 616/672
Min and Max ride height Front: 0 to -1.3 Rear: 0 to -1.8
Recommended ride height setting -.4"/-.7"
Notes: Valved and sprung as HKS's track ready coilover product, like the regular III it's rear dampers adjust from just above the lower shock mount so you do not have to pull the damper to adjust it or drill holes to access from above.

oem spring rates 2003-2004
314/342

oem spring rates 2004.5+
314/427

I installed a set of these and the install instructions were very descriptive and illustrated but were all in Japanese. Also they didn't come with brake line mounts. Finally. I don't know if anyone else experienced this but the bottom mounting hole for the rear struts was smaller then OEM bolts. We had to redrill the holes on the strut.

I don't see why the hell STANCE didn't make the **** hex shaped as well, as they are simple circles and rely solely on the allen key to hold it securely.

HOWEVER,
the top of the *** has a 3mm hex hole in it's center! this is by far what gives stance redemption as you can easily slip a ball end 3mm allen key on a T handle into it and adjust them with ease!

Like this:

Notice how these allen's have a ball end, for getting at the allen hole at a slight angle??? This allows easy access to the trapped rear adjustment **** in the rear strut bar hole:

honestly, with the ball nose 3mm T-handle allen keys you "MAY" not even need to drill up the hole at all!!



Though i would let you guys know my findings.


-J
Just for the record, i was able to adjust dampening with a standard length allen. but this was with stance gr+pro.

5. Has nut zip tied when purchased to rear shock lug.

Just installed these last night. Paid $849 plus shipping cane out to $899. I found them for $880 shipped but I really like my vendor. Anyways, so far so good. With 14kgF 12kgR spring rates they are very stiff yet I don't feel that they are that bad. I have them set in the middle on the dampening settings and it seems as though the compression and rebound rates make it more comfortable to drive even with the stiffer spring rates. They came with all necessary hardware, two adjustment extenders for the rears and two ride height adjustment wrenches. I dropped 1" all the way around. The rear ride height was actually perfect right out of the box and I don't even have to roll my fenders at my current height. The fronts were actually higher than stock when initially installed but after a little bit of adjusting, they settled in close to perfect. I will post some pictures up when I get a chance. My car is my daily driver and is used once to twice a month for autocross and about once every two to three months for time trials. As soon as I get some track time in with them I will give my amateur review of what I think of them. I've already found myself taking turns alot faster than I normally do but with so much of the body roll eliminated, I don't even notice that I'm going as fast as I am. All in all I am impressed with my sub $900 coilovers at this early point in time. Also, I believe but could be wrong, that they retail for $1450 but nobody really charges that much for them.

Mine do not have the gold hat either. so i assume they use the factory spring mount? in all pics i dont see the spring mount used but when spring installed without spring mount the spring in the bucket is loose (of course it wont be when unler load) but cant be good loose.
SO question: Use stock rubber spring mount on new BC BR versions?
