Ew no just run like 8"wide all around and run a smaller tire up front :) win

We should have the fix for the rear adjustment issue very soon (within the first 2 weeks of Sept.). The update will be given to the current owners and applied to the remaining in stock kits.
I think we're just waiting for this time frame to occur ^^^...


Just more vaporware.

I have contacted a member on here that is a machinist to make these parts and providing costs are not astronomical, RDC will pay for these parts and get them to the members that want more adjustment. The initial quote from the local shop was too high and VMaxx said to try to source out a place with a better price. For any immediate issues please contact V-Maxx about them... contact info is listed in thos thread

Currently, yes. Some have gotten lower using coils fitted from other cars, but these are the lowest Focus-specific coils.
