Damn, I got a 12 hour jump from the mass email but didn't get a chance to update this thread until now, by the time the mass email already went out!

If things go smoothly, there is a chance you may still receive them; shipping from SoCal to NV doesn't take too long.

As usual, fingers crossed!

Also, jjc3925 - Got that 10k / 6k setup for you, as requested, no extra charge

As long as they get here before april 1st. im happy. Test and tune for my local autox club.

And a question tiltmode. If I decide to switch to high spring rates in the future, will those springs be available through you?

No worries I knew it would be close. But my fingers are crossed for sure for delivery on the near side of that time frame.

either way im not ganna cry about it haha it would just be nice to hit those California coast twisties with some new suspension. I live close enough to so-cal that its likely they will make it in time for me to install them and leave for my trip on the 18th*. im just all pumped up lol. if they dont make it (god forbid) I may cut my trip short just to get these on my car and hit this up... not the actual event but that road and downhill due to my lack of high power lol... I work 5 min away from that road.

We lucked out with some extras coming over - guaranteed 15 spots but got confirmation on the 20 just the other day

In the grand scheme of things, they are still pretty exclusive. That said, high quality, reasonably priced products have their own ways of becoming the go-to choice in any market

Do the initial setup adjustments video on the powertrix website apply to the rx8 as well? He is doing the install in a Z there.

I haven't seen the video, but I imagine the same basic concepts should apply.

I'll see if I can make a basic write-up on how to do an initial setup on the coilovers for regular use, that's an excellent idea!

The way I did initial setup was to thread the height adjustment on 25 full turns (1 turn = 360 degrees) on the front and rear, and then tighten the spring preload perch by hand so that it's snug, try to get them all about the same tension, just do it by feel.

You're going to need to take measurements and adjust at least one more time so as long as they're all the same for the initial setup you should be fine. Just make sure you thread the height adjustment in at LEAST 20 turns.

One more spot opened, so we've got a total of two spots open at the moment!

Aaron pretty much nailed it

There are a few things here and there that can be done slightly differently, such as measuring pre-load, but this is exactly the way you'll want to start out!

Updated OP!

Just in time too! What tires were you considering?

The last set is currently payment pending - for those of you who were interested, feel free to watch this thread for updates

The next shipment will most likely be in the next 1-1.5 months - this time we are striving to order enough to keep them in stock. As always, the Pre-Order Group Buy pricing will still be offered on the full quantity ordered this next time. So if you are on the fence but have some time to spare, sit tight for Round 3!
