This is a call out to all MS6 owners in the So. Cal area.
If you live in the southern cali area and can give up your car for a bit,
Tein needs an MS6 for a full damper suspension r&d session.
if interested please let me know.

How long do they need the car for and will that person receive a free kit?

I'm sure you will recieve some sort of compensation. I just got in touch with them over the weekend
so i will get detailed information first thing monday.
i do not believe they will need the car for too long. But if there is someone ready and willing it gives me a little more fire power with tein.

I'm actually surprized Tein is going to do this. Their kit for the regular 6 is already so much stiffer than the the MS6 rates. It will be interesting to see what they come up with.

I am located in san diego and willing and able to donate my car for the sake of all MS6 owners out there. I would like to know for how long will they need it and where?

Ok i just spoke with Tein. Heres whats up.
Tein will need a car that is as stock as possible ( intake exhaust rims are ok) No aftermarket sub box or anything that can alter the weight of the car drasticly.

Tein will need the car for 2-3 days.

As far as compensation, heres what they told me. SOMETIMES...tein will let the donar keep the parts that they test on the car. The guy said it is not a guarentee, but it is a possibility.

I know a couple of you already PMed me saying u are wiling to donate.

PM me again if your car fits what TEIN needs. If not, whoever pms me first will be who i contact TEIN about.

Thanks Guys, sucks being on east coast i'd donate my car in a heartbeat

Sounds good. The no guarantee for free parts is SOP for TEIN.

:drive:

Whoever donates their car, tell them you want Tein FLEX or better. They may cost less, but they're cheaply constructed (skinny shafts, unimpressive valving). Basically, I'd bet they wouldn't be better than stock, save for being adjustable. Tein's FLEX and RA are decent products though.

The difference between these two products is only $200, but a huge leap in quality:

Super Street:


FLEX:

I had Tein CS Coilovers on my 01 Lexus GS430 and the ride was quite nice. I also used the EDFC controller and it enabled me to make adjustments on the fly from the drivers seat :D
