May be let you test drive next meet up and you can sense more than me
sounds like we need a meetup ND for TMS, even last time it was hard to keep up with you
I wonder what it be like this time.
I will wait until you have the wheels and then I will have a meetup.

Bro, Definately worth to try it!

Guys see below my inital testing

Report (as of 19/July, senond day ACS Spring installed):
Cornering max speed that my horse could bear, it's much faster, as stable as like, well, a sport-sedan should be.
At open road it feel tighter, especially while heavy braking. The front-end is , if not at all, much less knee!

That's why I said not worth to ship those heavy stuffs here. More expansive than getting them here.
