Probably best off keeping Facebook for friends and family and opening a business page on Facebook, that would you can still be referred to clients but don't have to listen to the **** anytime you open Facebook. Haters gonna hate innit.
Already got a Facebook page man.

A valid question Frankwhat would you do differently in hindsight then andy ?
Aye that's true but it does make a great deal if sense now in what he was saying.Ed does,nt cater for your "average micra owner" tho eh, and there is a big market for them because of the lack of aftermarket stuff availiable.
personally, i would have concentrated on the panhard rods, offset bushes and strut braces etc, trying to juggle with too many balls in the air is tempting fate.
and i would have made sure there were many items already built/in stock, so that there was no waiting times involved, and like you say, no credit/multi payments crap
Hello mate... I've been reading through your cut springs thread and I'm not going to lie I didn't fully understand all of it... but one thing I did get from it was that you know suspension... and that's enough for me.Cut springs and the facts. End of. No questions. That's it
First off I took a spring...its a 100lb/in spring with a 13.2in free length
12.5mm material thickness (w/t)
335mm free length (f/l)
87.5mm closed length (c/l)
Currently on H701 is a smaller 10.5in 113lb/in spring..
And the same 12.5 w/t
Anyway to the cutting
The spring has 7 coils
So I calculated the height and spring rate
1 full coil off gives
And 117lb/in +17% (40mm)
2 coils off gave
And 140lb/in +40% (95mm)
Cant go no lower as I want to remain captive and my aim is 125lb/in
So 1.5 coils off
And 127lb/in +20% (67mm)
Its official... cut standard springs are better than lowering springs in terms of rate...
As more coil off ups rate I need to go less..
So 1.25 coils off
And 122lb/in +22% (46mm)
You could say 1/4 coil is 5lb/in but that's incorrect.. rate goes up the more of the coil is cut.
1 - 17%
1.25 - 22%
1.5 - 27%
2 - 40%
The rate machine cycled each spring 100 times continuously so they're well settled. No sign of sag of wear. They retained their rates
Now I fiddled and tweaked my numbers about.
Chucked H701 on the scales and I got the static l/r weight balance 50/50. Weighing a massive 220kg on each front corner. And 93kg on each rear corner. 57% front/rear balance which is about right
Looking at the roll centres on the car there's more weight transition from right to left than the other way round only by a small margin and the only way to counteract that is varying spring weights... I cut the springs accordingly to give the right rate. 1.15 and 1.25 coils was my selection in the end.
Shimmed the height to reset the crossweights to where I like em
Normally varying weights on the springs isn't that plausible... trimming the coils gives me that flexibility
So I got 50/50 static and now 50/50 dynamic... not done that before on mine so it should corner like a lunatic now on some rough surfaces
So in summary as much as I hate cut springs. Providing they're cut correctly they can be extremely efficient. I don't recommend going beyond the max shock length, so they can remain captive. Other than that they should serve you well providing you get the right height and rate from them
