CA Fatcat Coilovers - 7k/5k springs (street/track setup)- SOLD!

Selling a set of Fatcat Motorsports coilovers; 7k front / 5k rear.

Bought them used from someone else - decided to go a different direction with my coilovers.

The suspension is great for driveability with exceptional performance on the track - it's these or Ohlins until you start spending way more $$.

These are non-adjustable, but are custom valved for the spring rates. They can be revalved by Shaikh at FCM for different spring rates if you decide to make changes at another point down the line. They are, however, ride height adjustable.

let me know if you have any questions - $1350 OBO, in the Los Angeles, CA area. Will ship at buyer's expense.

Photos of the car with them on in my driveway and at Laguna... because... it's Laguna.

-PCS



EDIT: SOLD!!

ride on the street was firm, but smooth. Seemed to be a step up from the R3 bilsteins - definitely not a jarring super stiff setup.

it did end up being a little soft for the track for what I am trying to do, but it was great on the track - still felt super balanced and smooth; just a little softer than I was looking for. Still enough to put down a 2:06 at buttonwillow #13cw on 200tw tires (which was great for me, at least).

Nice! so as far as the valving goes could you just slap on higher spring rates general rule for most coilovers set ups is about 2kg could you up 2kg front and rear on these without a re-valve? Or would it be recommended to get them re-valved? I know they do some juju-magic at fat cat motorsports.
