They're superb for street driving. If you plan to track the car, I hear that they're not up to the task. Grab some coilovers if you wanted to drive it to the limits.

The speedbump thing still exists with the FSD's cause that's what they're designed to do. Rides stiff on smooth roads, soft over bumps. They're supposed to feel like stiff shocks and when you hit any impurities in the road, it opens up a valve or something and lets the shock absorb more.

Car is much more planted with much less body roll and she still rides as soft/comfortably as stock.

I don't know if that's the answer you want, but yeah. I rub on speed bumps at medium speeds also. My previous car was SLAMMED so I'm so used to going slow around the common problems of being low that I don't even mind it anymore.

If you want a ride, shoot me a PM. I'm best available from 4-7 PM daily if the drive is close or on a weekend.

I think focusedsketch says he was free Sunday or Monday, so we can do it either of those days.

Freak night huh? My buddies told me to go buy a ticket to see girls half naked. I didn't care for that. Who F'ing knew that they were going to have Ferry Corsten and Benny Benassi playing. Meh, Just found out .

Sad how I wasn't excited for the ladies, but stoked for the DJ's...

But... Ferry Corsten!!!

Haha, nah, would have taken the day off today if I was gonna go (or knew about the tickets still being on sale).

Been up since 3 AM, I don't think I could handle freaknight right now.

Have fun though, sounds like a blast.

Thanks for the reply. You got pretty much what I was asking for. Interesting how the shocks 'soften' up when the road gets rough. I'll have to look into them a bit more.

You should come out to the next meet. I'd be happy to let you take her for a spin.
