anyone have this issue. so frustrating. coming out of a fast turn, the car jolts. kinda like when you first learn manual the car jolts. it only happens when i'm coming out from a high speed turn. i stiffened the suspension towards hard and minimized it quite a bit but still there. i'm guessing its the shocks on the FA coilovers?

iSpoon, I don’t experience any jolting at high speed turns and I’m not sure what it could be. My Progress coilovers have super soft pre-dampening though.
Maybe bad motor mounts? Wheel bearing? I believe WarmMilk experienced his FA coils causing a hopping effect while in high speed corners and he had to send them back for revalving.

motor mounts are brand new, hardrace. just put them in about 8-9 months or so. ill wait for warmmilks response.

unfortunately FA wont service the coilovers anymore since they don't service the dc5 anymore. i asked them if i could upgrade them to 510 and different rates and they wont.

the kinda hopping I experienced doesn't sound like what you're describing... all of mine was in reaction to what the car was driving over, you're saying yours happens when accelerating out of a corner, on presumably a smooth track? to me that sounds like something is binding up in the suspension... or maybe something with the engine since you're saying its like someone learning to drive a manual... does this happen every single time or is it on and off? is it possible it only happens when you're relatively low on fuel and its fuel starvation?

yeah I never had anything like that... its definitely not fuel starvation...

my guess would be binding. maybe a steering issue? either the rack itself or the rack bushings? are all of your front suspension bushings the PCI sphrical or are some still rubber? maybe the zero compliance mixed with soft stock compliance aren't playing nice together?

all guesses tho...

Is it track season yet? This kid at work tells me his type-s won't start anymore after racing a girl in a 2017 STi and revving his shit to 9000 rpm lol.

It's always track season in Arizona. I had a dude look at my DB8 ITR the other day. Not sure how I feel about it. I put it up for sale as I'd rather use the money to pay off the rest of the debt I owe AMEX from getting divorced. If this dude buys my ITR, I'm strongly considering getting a Corolla XRS so that I can retire the wagon as a DD and turn it into a project.
