when i first started driving the car i wound the dampers right up but soon learnt it doesnt work that way when you push it the car becomes all skittish and looses grip easy the suspension needs to move a bit to allow the tyres to grip were i live the roads arnt race track smooth so need alittle suspension just wondering really how people do get there cars to sit low and no have arch to tyre problems

ah they not that good then? i seen them in mini mag a couple of times and thought i would give one a go!
I think they are supposed to be very good,
Just couldnt figure using one on a standard 998 when ill probably change it soon anyway (and not likly for another carbed engine).
While i was there though he got a call from a "Mr Calver"
Just guessing / assuming it was Keith.

supermotolee i wish i could get my car run as low as that black one! i am on 13"s at the moment and cant get it anywhere near as low as that. i think that if you have 10" wheels the car naturally sits lower but you can also lower a car on 10"s more.
i think miglias manage to run so low because they cut the rear arches and re weld them higher up to give more clearance.
thats good to hear edr4an, dont want to sepend loads on an air filter for it to be no good, it probably was keith calver, i think they work together alot designing tuning parts, i know these air filters where a joint effort between the two of them.

i think it is from an mg metro because the valves look quite big, but they will be changed anyway!
