• 1983 Audi quattro-Mocking up the Coilovers

    I’ve had some discussion and it looks like I should be fine with the MLS, even with the deck cooling opened up to something more along the lines of the AudiSport stuff. Also discussed some highly positive real world performance benefits from the mods.

    So, I’m in the process of revising the design and I’ll throw my test head back on the machine and remove some more material. Should have something in the next few weeks.

    In the meantime, I was able to dry fit my Honey Badger (TM) coilovers made up of $300 worth of new and second hand parts. I think they turned out pretty damn nice. We’ll see how these struts hold up. I’ve decided to try and bring my spring rates down a bit in hopes of not killing them, if they’re not half gone already…

    Sorry for the crappy Android photo…
