FLAT DOWN IT IS HARD AS STEEL ON A BUMPY ROAD BUT I ALSO DROVE IT AT THE RACETRACK AT MOST FULL DOWN AND IT WAS EXTREMELY FAST WOUT WITH THE GREEN PICKUP ON THIS FORUM CAN CONFIRM THIS BECAUSE IT WAS FASTER THAN HIS 44 BHP CAR BUT MY CAR DROVE LIKE A GOCART AND WAS A LOT FASTER IN THE CURVES.

I am going to mount 4 extra valves so i can do side to side and each wheel seperately.Then i am going to mount the titanium sparkle blocks .And i have to make more stabilisators front and rear .I will mount the same extra seat for my wife and a childrens bucket seat for my 20 month old son and this will be mounted higher so he can look out of the windows .And when my house is ready i already have plans for another project completely out of the picture .WAIT AND SEE.

Great job! I like your car. Shocked
Air ride is very cool. I want to see a video with the 4 valves!
PS: Can you tell me the price of your air-ride kit?

Hey!

Very cool car, i like the principle of the suspension because it is simple, quite easy to mount versus hydro of GS.

The only problem is that the stiffness depends of the high of the car, you have to do with. That is due to the fact that the volume of air on the one you work depends of the hight, when the volume is small it's hard. That's not the problem of hydro, because you just change the volume of oil to get the hight you want, so you don't change the volume of air.

But to get a lots of fun, mountings these air cylinders is surely the better way!
