[QUOTE][B]Suspension [/B]

The 3-way adjustable edo/KW Competition shock absorbers and sports suspension systems are designed for motorsports. For our 3-way adjustable shock absorbers we employ gas mono-tube shocks that are adjustable for compression and rebound (separate adjustments for low-/high- speed compression damping) and that feature a remote oil reservoir. The damping forces can be adjusted individually.

Optionally we offer an electro-hydraulic nose lift system.

What are Edo going to do when they've run out of current supercars to make better? Maybe they could work their way back through the years, Ferrari F50, 288GTO, Countach, Miura, Alfa Stradale, Duesenberg SSJ, Bugatti 57SC, Mercedes 60hp...

I would like to seee them get their hands on a CCX though.:eek:

The first and last pictures look more like chops in the first post.

I hate it when they try to make it "look" like it's been tuned. Instead, they're just dumb chops. They might as well make it first. Showing me a chop proves nothing.

so... you know it's real, right?

F1_Master 12-14-2007 10:43 PM

I must be seeing things. Is this car sporting an actual race-like spoiler in some shots, and the factory spoiler in others?

MadMax13 12-15-2007 12:06 AM

Maybe its removable, for when you DONT want to look like a tosser...

To be fair, Edo tune their cars for track use, and on a track with over 700bhp, I think I'd want more downforce than Porsche supply as standard. I am glad they make it removable.:)

Sweet car.

Super GT 12-16-2007 07:59 PM

Edo proved to be great with lambo. Now this is going to be unbeleviable.

Super GT 12-16-2007 08:02 PM

It also could use a little body kit. If you know what I mean. Gemballa has a nice one the mirage GT. [url]http://farm1.static.flickr.com/130/329113458_2e42c5b800.jpg[/url]

I really like the way these guys work. Increasing characteristics so much for such cars. What is more, thay avoid those loosy bodykits.

I don't think the huge wing in the first post first pic is real.

But yeah, the rest of the car is real.
