Locost Adjustable Front Suspension - Part 3 of 3 - Coilover Shocks
A simple approach to an adjustable front suspension for a locost sevenesque
roadster . You can build a double wishbone suspension using off-the-shelf
parts and nearly any donor with just a tape measure and this simple DIY
process. The key to this solution is adjustability in those components
that matter the most (and that you can realistically control).

Pfadt Tests their Corvette Carbon Driveshaft
Designed to yield at a much higher torque value than an OEM Corvette
driveshaft, the Pfadt Carbon Driveshaft proves its worth in this video.
After already having done durability testing long before the product was
introduced to the public, we decided to test a new carbon weave for
ultimate torque holding capacity. What we found was pretty much as
expected, with this shaft yielding at 4500 lb-ft of torque, at the bond
between the aluminum ends and the carbon tube itself.
How to adjust ride height & corner balance your car - KW Suspension DDC - Technik
Setting your ride height is just the start when you switch to coilovers.
The real beauty of using KW DDC coilovers for us was in being able to lower
the car and maintain the OEM corner balance. KW and other coilovers also
let you improve the corner balance or weight distribution of your car if
your car doesn't already have a good set up from the factory.
Technik and GTChannel show you how to set up the KW Suspension DDC using
our project BMW E92 M3. We changed our wheels and tires to a square set up
and in doing so raised the front ride height. This changed the handling
characteristics. By putting on the DDC coilovers we were able to adjust the
ride height and more importantly regain the stock corner weights despite
the taller front tires.
Robert Choo lends us his expertise and garage to do the adjustments.

the strength of the GM Coil Mount, and that mounting aftermarket coil-overs
are safe for your corvette, as long as the mount is designed properly.
After the tests, Lou describes in detail the design attributes of the LG
product, and GM's design. Thank you for watching.
