Just wondering if anyone has Racing Beat springs on their 3rd Gen 3? Have you had any issues, what is the ride quality like?
The .75" drop is the max I'm looking for and just looking for somebody's input.

I do and its perfect. Not too low, not too harsh. Looks good as well.

This is my general sentiment as well. I can't go too low due to a number of steep driveways I encounter. Ride on the interstate is great, just a bit firmer. Really only noticeable on rougher sections.

Performance seems stellar. Once I replace my mediocre all season tires, I feel like the suspension upgrades will really shine.

My only minor complaint is I feel like there is still a decent amount of nosedive under heavy breaking.

This is on my 16' hatch, with RB springs, Koni Reds, Progress sway bar (stiff setting), Megan strut bar and Megan front chassis brace.

this is literally my wishlist for my car. i have the progress RSB, how is the combo with koni reds and RB springs? a match made in heaven or would your recommend something else over the other and why.

Visually, I wish it looked more like the Eibachs. I just wasn't sure if it would be too low for some of the driveways I encounter.

For a daily driver (~90 miles a day), it's comfortable (enough), with sharp and responsive handling. Even with all-seasons, it feels great. With better tires, I'm sure it would really come alive. Despite the all seasons, I can push the car pretty hard, harder than I'm willing to do on public roads.

Hope that helps

My Koni special active reds and racing beat springs are perfect together. My progress sway bar is on stiff as well. I run on michelin pilot all seasons with lighter konigs. I love my setup. Handling is crisp and not harsh at all. Cornering is a joy.
