Thanks to my friend Vitor for these nice photos























After one day of hard work, finally I got the coilovers and 20mm Project Kics spacers on the BRZ, the spacers are for the future use of my stock wheels for drifting and track days after I finish my STI calipers conversion. Adding the 20mm spacers makes the stock wheel look more aggressive and stand out.

Next project is the STI calipers conversion, in conjunction with these wheels on the car. Sorry, I haven't gotten a chance to take some photo with them. so just the wheels for now.

Sweet progress. It's amazing what some spacers can do for looks of the stock wheels!

I will have to do some more refinement on the front and rear ride height, I need raise the front by around half inch, and drop half inch to the rear. I am afraid the front will touch the fender during counter steering in drifting.

Indeed, the spacers did a better job than I was expected, the spacers were served the purpose of when I got the BBK upgrade and I can still use my stock wheels for drift and track days.

But now I can recolor the wheels to have a better look of the stock wheels. , I wasn't a FAN of the stock wheels until the spacers installed and dropped

Any plans for an exhaust or are you waiting for the turbo? The spacers look sweet

Great ride like stock or feel better than stock in soft, and dial them on hard then it rides like a race car.

Hands down, I have a DC5 coil for my 350z for drifting competition and daily compares to Fortune auto i felt equally great, cant wait for the next track day or drift even to try on the new setup. Great job on the shocks build and with the springs rate opinion from the owner, he is very knowledgeable. So far I was able to do something drift testing around where I live has an unoccupied play ground that I can do, so I will keep on update on the coilovers, for people dont know this brand, just keep this in mind, fortun auto is ISO standard company everything it made has follow the standard and specifications, ISO=great.

8kg for front and rear, this spring rate good for drifting and autocross, track race need to set on hard with the correct tires combination, the car will transform into a corner monster.

HI,

It looks great. Where you buy your spacer?

What's the suitable size for that? I saw some people use 25 mm and

some use 20 mm. How do you think?

http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22596

Thanks.
