When I had my si wheels on my ek it ride ruff meaning every single bump I hit is like going into a mad ass pot hole.

After I install my racing sparco ns2 wheels it feel smooth over bumps:redface:.

Could yall tell me the reason why it feel smooth with my sparco wheels comparing to si oem??

suspension spec: skunk2 integra coilover and agx adjustable setting at 3 front and 6 rear.

Also, if the offset on the new wheels is lower than the OEM ones, it will not only change where/if it rubs, but it will effectively lower your spring rate a little.

Not really. If it fixes your rubbing and is a marginally softer ride, then so be it.

try explaining this to RC guys, whole rear pod is unsprung weight in my class.

I was half bullshitting my way thru the fight, but had the right ideas. The national champ wannabes said I was wrong.........but the champs confirmed my findings.

I just can't drive the lines they do.........dang it!

is that bad to have?

Unsprung weight means the stuff that doesn't ride on your suspension. Everyone has some amount of it. Your brakes, axles, wheels and tires are all unsprung weight because that stuff directly touches the ground through the wheels, while stuff like your frame and motor all are floating you could say on the suspension.

Sweet, I actually still have my TC3. Running a 13T motor in it. Pretty fast. I bet an 8 turn would be crazy!
