Nurburgring Suspension

Hi All,

I currently have coilies on my STi and I am in need of some new ones, looking at BC racing ones!

However I am going to the Nurburgring next year and I have been told a standard set up and whiteline anti-roll bar is the best path to go down ?

Can anyone shed some light and advice ?

Thanks
Luke

seems to depends who you ask, i know a couple of companies that supplied them way before they ever appered on scoobynet as the next 'must have' hyped up product, both companies dropped them due to problems with them.

there is the other issue of do you need coilover? most folks never change the settings so there a waste of time.

Basically I have 225/40/18 's so the standard suspension is useless because it rubs constantly, and I want best of both worlds (impossible I know )

would you say standard set up and smaller wheels is better handling than 18's with coilies around the nurburgring ??
