Performance = racing

I am getting the suspension kit from toyopartz.net . TC TRD performance parts

First thing that is getting done is 5% tint on all windows except for the winshield. That is getting 50% put on it. Then that suspension kit from conicelli parts center and last but not least 3M front film protection. That is all getting done before it is even driven off of the lot.

Is suspension used to make your car handle better or what?

hey people, glad to see that there's already a forum going on for the Tc. I am going to get mine sometime in the next month or two. I am closely associated with HKS and from what I heard... They are working on stuff for it. Most likely an exhaust, turbo application, and electronic harnesses.

yes. the trd springs lower the vehicle at all four corners about 1.2 inches initially, with a bit of room to settle after a few thousand miles. the shock replacements are designed to work with the lowering springs as a kit to both lower the overall stance of the car, and to improve ride, handling, cornering. lower center of gravity, together with a stiffer spring = flat around that corner.

Would getting a new suspension be good for the everyday driver, or just someone who's planning on racing the car?

Well if your racing a car, your only going straight...

Suspensions are used on turns, so it doesn't matter. It's good for both.

Ahh, good point. I guess it all depends if the owner has the money and would want to invest into his/her car.

ok, first off, hi all...

now i really don't have the intention of coming off rude, but SilverX.....
that's not right at all..
suspention is VARY importent when racing.. be it in a strate line (Drag, red light) or anything els (auto-X, rally, highway cat&mouse).

one of the main reasonse Y many tuners will turn to the Scion Tc is because it has the same type of suspention as the celica, @ a fraction of the cost.... and yet it can still benifit from modifications. the only thing that will turn off some tuners from the Tc is the fact that all of that glass up top makes it very top heavy, and raises the center of gravety. so lowering it will help alot. plz
i don't think that "i know it all" but i do do ALOT of reading..... hope my rant was not Tooo agresive for the first one that i post on this new board....

and plz excuse my (SP) it's 4:00am here..... bout to hit the sack....
