Where is the best place to purchase the Kars Stage 3 kit? I've had it with this wheel hop problem. It gets wet here in Seattle now and then and the rear hops all freakin day unless I baby the hell out of the car. The GM bushings just aren't cutting it.

Also, where is a good place to get the Hotchkis sways?

I thought that he quit making them. I hope I'm wrong. Maybe he'd start up again if there was enough interest. To date this was the only confirmed cure for wheel hop, I also remember some handling benefits as well.

Hmmm, lots of interest -- maybe a short run of new pieces???

I can do them, we thought we were losing the V, but so far we have been fortunate enough to keep her!!!!

I'll post my #, hopefully the mods won't boot me, as I was a paying vendor for awhile.....:)

Call 1-866-255-7068 ask for Doug, I can have up to 5-6 kits ready in about 3 to 4 weeks.

Let me know!!!

Will the '05 owners need to do any welding?

Is there anyone here with one installed that can share their experience???
I hate hopping or worse bogging when I try to get off the line fast.
Is the kars kit a big improvement over the gm bushings???
I love the V but don't have the launch technique down at all:crying:

Just went by R&S, but there was no V there. I talked to one of your colleagues, so I know it is th eright place. I def want to take a look at the kit and see how it works, What do you think half a car length or a full one to 60:hide:
What other mods do you have???
I can't believe you work right behind my office and I have never seen the car.
I always see it on 87.

Back to the thread
HOW DOES THE KARS KIT WORK???
