Hey Andrew, sorry to hi-jack but I recall someone (it may have been you) from RCE mentioning using BRZ oem front springs and FRS oem rears. Does that ring a bell. I'll probably be changing to B6s later this year and don't really want to lower the car for all the reasons others have stated.

thanks.

I've never tried it, but yeah I thought that would be solid for a non-lowered set up.

Remember though the BRZ springs have changed over the years, so be sure to get the right ones.

But on the other hand the RCE is a nice set with good use and support and we know it works.

I don't want to make my car tail happy, I want it neutral and to handle better, grip better, not be a drift car so I want proper front/rear balance. I know the BRZ has already done this a bit better than the Toyota but I want to keep or slightly improve on that rather than make it more like the Toyota
This was exactly my criteria and just personally I didn't want to lower the car a whole lot. I just wanted to capitalize on the BRZ neutral handling and a good balance with good grip. I am 100% satisfied with RCE Yellows as they did exactly that. Also, having a good alignment truly helps as well. I think you will be more than content with the RCE Yellows. Now I have them paired with Bilstein B6 and its been amazing.

@ Racecomp Engineering. What do you say?


The shipping rates are killing during these times and the above package will be achievable sometime very soon.
Stock springs work just fine. On sticky tires you end up on the bump stops a lot. Stiffer springs like yellows help with that. Trade off with yellows is a hit to ride quality. If I lived in a spot where I was constantly driving on terrible roads any spring would probably be too much for me.

300tw range tires from my usage on the street has been a good sweet spot. Previously ran on PS4S tires, now on advan V105s.
Very much keeps the playful nature of the car.

I drove a friend's car on silver coils and 255 RS4 tires. It feels very track spec by comparison. Grip for days and takes corners with little drama around town. You can push the car and it takes it with no fuss.

Yellow combo retains the stock feel but sharpens it. The overly loose feeling at speed from the rear end is gone, but I can still get it to rotate pretty easily without purposely upsetting the balance of the car.
