I think of this as an extreme version of the regular question on fitting ST springs.

Yes they fit, but it isn't the best match. ST springs on a MkIII don't give the same "drop" as on an ST, these Vmaxx units were even worse for not being matched to the car.

Just because they'll bolt on doesn't make it a good choice.


Rebel Devil got caught in the middle, sourcing an item many wanted that they were told would work. That ended in a long drawn out mess, without a good resolution from what I saw of it.

While there's still a lot of pent up demand for such an item, it might be better to soft peddle any news on an upcoming product IMHO - at least until there's a confirmed release date. Everyone wants the "inside track" on what may soon be avail., but rumors soon become "facts" as the news spreads easily causing a lot of disappointment.

Plain and simple, these were designed for the Mk2 and never intended to fit anything else.

RDC put themselves in the middle-no one asked them to be there. This thread was designed to inform the community, not to bash RDC. Other members bought this product well before I did, but instead of informing the community they kept it to themselves and this thread was only intended to keep future members from getting stuck in the position I was in of having purchased a part that was marketed to a vehicle that it doesn't fit.

RDC wanted to jump in and try to defend the part or company despite all of the proof and the fact that Justin and I were trying to get resolution through V-Maxx. That was his choice because I never mentioned or even alluded to it being his fault. I've asked Mike countless times to stop perpetuating false hope here, in countless other threads, in pm, and through meditation via others. He is the one that chooses not to, and that does not benefit anyone else that either has interest or has been waiting two years for a fix.

I said it back in 2013 and it holds true to this day-vaporware. Whether someone likes it or not doesn't change it's truth, and that won't change with repeated promises-only with a legitimate part that physically exists.

Looks like we're on the same page here, "vaporware" until tested & available. A repeat of prev. problems wouldn't be good for anyone.
