    Car looks great on the Sportlines! I am about to buy a set as well.

    Did you need camber arms to clear the 265/35/18 tire on the +43 offset wheels? Mine are 18x9.5 +42 and I'm wondering if I can get away without using the camber arms.

    Also, how is the performance and ride of these new springs versus stock (and particularly in +R mode)? Thanks!

    Thanks, I didn't need camber arms to clear the arches, I bought them to run a more aggressive setup for track.

    The springs defo made a difference with body roll and handling on track, although they are noticeably stiffer.

    Where did you get the gel plates from?

    I am wanting to order a set for my 2019 Sonic Grey Sport Hatch

    We did another track session at Silverstone and the car absolutely blew me away!

    I was also over at Dream Automotive talking about more car parts and got my Dream Hardlagged Catless Downpipe fitted along with USR PTP Turbo Blanket:

    And now the fun bit... :drive:

    Went over to TDI North (one of the most reputable Honda tuners in the UK) to get some more power...

    Had the KTuner V1.2 custom tuned and made some good power on 99 octane fuel:

    The FK8 made about 350whp and you can defo feel the extra torque!
