    Mobil 1 should bring back the 0W40 New Life and dump the Fuel save.

      Really?! Your conclusion is that the $2500 set is better than the $350 set? Despite being 7x more expensive and yet slower?! I'm nominating you guys to MENSA.

                  This is cool. I would have picked better cars to do this with.

                          The low car should have gone with a reasonable set of coil overs like Tien and then compare, I bet Tien would win for value and reasonable performance instead of this result which was entertaining but come on, they’re $2,200 apart. That is 7 times the difference! $25,000 Honda Vs $175,000 Porsche?!

                                              For anyone who bought the low-end MaXpeeding suspension, some of those parts from factory will rattle like hell. I have my own set, and the driver's side rear was absolutely terrifying to try and figure out driving back and forth to work. However, I did find after putting it up and down four times torqued and done correctly, that the holes on the top mounting plate were too big for the studs, and that the plate itself was warped. Not only that, but the MaXpeeding rod's threads did not match perfectly with their lower housing. This allowed movement enough to replicate the noise I heard while driving irregardless of what height it was set to. Infuriated, I went ham hard, channelling MacGyver with a roll of aluminum tape in hand. I set about 5 layers of 1/2" x 2" cuts for a top shim, rolled about 8 times around a pencil to thread it through the holes, (sliding these on the studs with the pencil, and then keeping the pencils hanging from the studs to guide the plate through), cut the tape high as I could to the plate and grinded the threads down with a die to get the exess off. That solved the top. The bottom mount? I just slapped a whole piece of aluminum tape on the inside of the housing and screwed it down. Haven't had a problem since.

So basically you would have a crank on both sides of the bike i it sounds crazy but talking to my cousin we figured if we can weld it and it can move it’s possible
