    We at MeisterR are always listening to customers feedback and working on new ideas.
    A very common request we get are Affordable "Track Focused" Suspension.

    These will be suspension are are design for track performance and generally use sticky compound / semi-slick tyres.
    The springs rate are on the high side and road compliancy will be compromised for better weight transfer control during track use.

    Our aim will be have a setup under £1,000. That is where we want to set our bar.

    Of course, some setup will be cheaper and other a bit more expensive depending on what is required to make the best setup possible.
    Some setup will need helper springs in order to achieve enough droop travel due to high springs rate, etc.

    I want to know what are some concerns potential customers will have?
    What are some questions you may have?

    Let me know and I want to hear opinion of current track car drivers and concerns of potential future customers.

    Having coilovers on my EP3 I run F10kg/mm R16kg/mm, Which suit me fine on track. A concern I have with all coilovers for the McPherson equipped cars is the lower collar coming loose and knocking out alignment. A robust solution to this problem would be a great selling point for EP3 owners IMO, As I know numerous people have tried to solve the problem themselves.

    Sounds about right or a EP3, I would opt for the front to be a little softer to avoid suspension harmonics.
    But that will depends on the corner weight of the car.

    The front of the EP3 can be a pain, we haven't had any problem with that lower bracket coming lose however.
    But of course it can happen, but generally it is few and far between.
