Vivid Racing has upped the suspension on the Scion FR-S with the help of KW Variant 3 Coilovers.
Online PR News – 13-July-2012 – Gilbert, AZ 85233 – In the latest installments of performance parts, Vivid Racing’s Project Scion FR-S has just received a new set of coilovers by KW. The KW Variant 3 model that fits both the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S offers the ultimate in suspension performance. Having used the KW coilovers on other project cars, VR was sure to get their maximum performance on the FR-S, too. Featuring independent rebound and compression adjustments, the Variant 3 allows you to really dial in the ride quality and handling. The compression adjustments allow you to fine tune how the shock goes down on bump absorption and the rebound on how the shock expands back out. Depending on your vehicle use, you might want softer compression on the rear of a rear wheel drive car to give you more traction or “squat”. With a majority of the weight up front, it’s good to keep the compression stiffer. Rebound adjustments will depend on streets or track to eliminate any unnecessary bounciness that can occur. The KW V3 adjustable ride height gives a very low stance on the FR-S. Coupled with the Agency Power rear sway bar and adjustable rear control arms, the Scion FR-S suspension is basically completed.
