After more than 1000Km with the Teins SF I can say that are a very good product.

Actually I've tested on road only, good tarmac surface and not so good, low speed, bumps and highway speeds.

I'm riding with default spring settings and 10clicks (from soft) front and 9rear, factory suggestion alignment



From street point of view, satisfied at 100%, with Bridgestone RE002 I think to have now a perfect setup for my needs.
Cars lose most of oversteer attitude and its very very precise.

In the next weeks I plan to add more camber in the front to test on the track, with also R888 tires, with and without change clicks.

I'll add my comments than.

You will love them on the track. But from personal experience, I suggest to stiffen up the shocks a bit for the track and with that sticky of a tire. With a street tire, the tire will loose grip before the shock moves on a stiffer setting. However with a R888 and the track the tire will be able to hold a substantially higher amounts of lateral load which could start exhibiting some body roll as a result if you run them on the softer setting.
But this can also depend on how bumpy the track is, as if its a smooth track run them stiffer, however if its a bumpy/worn out track run them a softer to prevent lost of stability in high speed corners.
Thats the fun thing about the track, is you get to mess around with fun things like suspension settings, alignments, tire and pad compounds to improve on your time

PS. if you move the inner bolt on the top hat over to one hole outward, and move the outer bolt to one hole over as well you can get much more adjustment out of the top hat for camber before the bolts get in the way of the adjustment.

You were right!

Yesterday I've tested the car on track, I kept street Bridgestone Re002, same stiffness.

Loved it, absolutely perfect setup. Next time, I'll try the other setup, sticky R888, some more stiff and camber as you suggest.

To whom is looking for lower, good street ride and fun on the track, StreetFlex is the product!

Do these have 40mm or larger shafts?
From NASA TT book,
2) Non-BTM shocks/struts/dampers with a “Piggy Back” external reservoir (fixed reservoir
without a connecting hose) OR with shaft diameter 40mm or greater—must still take
additional points for the springs below +5
3) Non-BTM or modified/re-valved shocks/struts/dampers +3 (all others)(springs not included)

I know this is super late of a post revival but is there any rough estimates of highest ride height setting or is the 1.3in the initial drop and can choose to go lower from there. Not really any other reviews on this one and I'm curious about how high I can keep the settings to scrape less when leaving parking lots.
