I have them on my tC and have seen many other cars on Racelands. Usually they slam very nicely. Katie had them on her Mk3 GTi.

They go low on a lot of cars but don't go any lower than 3" on the 1st gens

I found out because a friend sent me a text to ask my opinion on them. I told him that I like mine but I'd wait until a few people get on them to see how they are.

Re: Raceland's for second gen

There's a local guy that got the first set for fitment purposes. He's an older guy, and the car isn't even remotely close to hammered.
I need to swing by their warehouse and talk to someone. We need a set in the hands of someone that will properly hammer an xB2.
Lucky thing for them, I know a guy.

Re: Raceland's for second gen

So buy them. They're really not that much. Until someone actually buys them, no one will know.

If I come up on some time, I could swing by their place. But that's few and far between.

That is super cheap for coilovers. Am I missing something?

Use them with air. A good friend of mine with an STI has Raceland and is strongly considering this. The UAS bags will fit on the bodies of the Racelands, so everything should work well. He has called them with the idea and, of course, they recommend him to not proceed. Only problem I can forsee would be higher wear on the dampers.
