However, if they tuned it for an ae86 why offer 8/6k default rates? They answer is marketing... everyone else does it so they prop figured they'd scare away potential customers by offering lower rates. That in itself is a huge compromise imo.
Can't argue with that one. I mentioned that a little further up.
You can't really blame them though. From what I read about the company, they really got their name on the map thanks to the s-chassis crowd, which of course ties into the drifting scene. And with drifting being the popular choice here in the states, gotta market to the crowd. Even with my own personal research (I literally read every single ae86 suspension thread on the internet) the 8/6 rate was the most common. What were they used for? Drifting Lol.
At least the valving is good because these rates on any other brand shock would be death Lol. I really can't stop praising the digressive valving though, by far the best I've ever felt.
