Ride: EL

Location: sydney
NSW, Australia

I had a EB with new Sensa tracs and the ride was much better, these are very firm, verging on harsh. I bought them because I was tight for cash at the time. The rears were $45 each, fronts $69 each. Iwas told by a couple of guys running rally cars that they were Monroes. There wouldn't be too many bumps on the "track" cant understand why a race car would use these? I'd like Konis also but theres not much point on a standard EL poverty pack. A friend of mine has them on a EL XR6 and it handles nicely.

Its not a race car its a track car, only ever fitted 1 pair of Sensa Trak, my personal opinion of them is crap, as for the Konis on the EL save up it will be worth it...hope you didnt get ripped off with front end clunk, thats why i asked about it

Konis are shocks, we have been talking about shocks not springs

Koni's aren't bad especially the adjustable ones or Bilstein which are brilliant, even used as original equipment on Mercedes sports and some high level porshes. :P
