The CARBONETIC LSD responds to the demands of the novice or the professional driver seeking the most dependable control when competing in road racing, time attack, drifting competition or a rally event. A vehicle’s kinetic performance is largely determined by the potential of the selected LSD. CARBONETIC release the Carbon LSD and the Metal LSD. Those LSD have different character. You can choose the best one for your vehicle.



EXEDY organic racing clutches only use premium friction materials that are resistant to slippage and burst. Increased clamp loads give the necessary capacity to handle modified engines. This is the preferred clutch for street and light horsepower track use. Drivability is similar to the stock clutch. Pedal efforts will be slightly higher because of the higher clamp loads. All of the Stage 1 clutch discs have spring center dampers to reduce drivetrain shock.


Ultra-Fiber Organic Disc
• EXEDY Exclusive Friction Composition
• High Heat resins bond friction fibers
• Unlike competitors, EXEDY friction material has no need for steel backing to pass SFI burst test
• Maintains drivability of an OE-style disc
• Heavy Duty oil-quench hardened damper
• Heavy Duty rivets retain clutch material

High Performance Cover
• Average of 40% increase in clamp load
• Extra capacity holds common street car upgrades
• Ductile iron pressure plate provides high strength, anti-burst protection in all temperature ranges
• Stamped steel cover designed to reduce deflection


The MONO FLEX coilover kit has been developed for entry-level competition motorsports and advanced street driving. Features include 16-way damping force adjustability (combined compression and rebound), a mono-tube internal design, pillowball upper mounts, and EDFC compatibility. There are independent adjustments for ride-height and spring pre-load settings for increased suspension tuning. The new Mono Flex also includes TEIN’s latest technological innovation, Micro Speed Valving (MSV) system, which allows the driver to feel a greater difference in damping force adjustments. Designed and developed for consumers seeking aggressive handling on the street and at the track.



• Steel Construction
• Mono Tube internal construction
• Inverted design for strut type front and rear
• Ride Height adjustable via threaded body and spring seats
• 16 way adjustable dampers, compression and rebound combined
• M.S.V. Technology for improved damping force adjustability
• Pillow ball upper mounts for increased steering feel
• Upper camber adjustment on front for strut type vehicles
• EDFC (Electronic Damping Force Controller) compatible
• Anodized brackets with Teflon coated shock body for heavy duty rust prevention

TEIN TYPE AND STREET FLEX DAMPER SYSTEMS FOR THE BRZ

Tein Type Flex

TEIN TYPE FLEX
TEIN has used its years of experience in various motor sports to produce a kit that provides the ultimate balance between comfort and performance. Developed for drivers seeking an aggressive coilover that can be used daily, and provide all the adjustments needed for circuit use. The FLEX damper Kit features the latest technology for all drivers who are seeking performance, and adjustability, while not giving up all ride comfort. We have incorporated separate spring perch height, and shell case length adjustment, which allows the suspension to retain more stroke and allows for more suspension tuning. The FLEX damper kit includes pillow ball upper mounts, which increase steering response; 16 levels of damping force adjustment, and is compatible with the EDFC (Electronic Damping Force Controller) for added convenience and adjustability.

Tein Street Flex

TEIN STREET FLEX
The Street Flex damper is the evolution of our popular Type Flex coilover. Developed to provide the ultimate balance of comfort and performance for both street driving and circuit use, along with wide-range damping force adjustment using our new Advance Needle technology and new damper valving specs, giving the driver a much more noticeable feel in damping force change and controllability. The shortened shell case design provides optimum damper stroke at lower than standard vehicle ride height. Full-length adjustability offers separate spring preload and ride height adjustment. Updated internal components and external coatings increase durability and product life. Includes Pillowball Upper Mounts (camber adjustable for strut type applications) and is compatible with the EDFC and EDFC Active systems.

It feels like forever since we’ve done one of these projects. Glad to see there is still one or two local fellows out there with interest.

What we have here is a JDM DC5 5 lug conversion that includes calipers, rotors, knuckles, control arms, trailing arms and sensors. The front knuckles were taken from the parted out DC5 track car, so bonus goodies include once replaced complete hubs, extended studs and J’s Racing roll center adjusters. Also from the parted out track car, Swift front and rear sway bars are to be installed.

The front lower control arms received our regular treatment of SuperPro polyurethane bushings. This is a must for the DC5 and EP3 platform, these cars suffer from lack of castor.

Much is to be gained from this affordable upgrade;
• Constant steering geometry
• Better on road handling and control
• Traction control, more responsive steering
• Longer service life of suspension parts
• Increased tire life
• Extra off road stability
• Alignment correction and stability

TEIN Super Street coilovers will be used on this EP3;
TEIN Super Street damper kit was designed for drivers seeking improved handling on the street and at the track. A shortened shell case is utilized to allow the most piston stroke possible, which allows for a better ride at lowered ride heights, and increased grip at the track. Great for daily driving and occasion track use, whether it be at the drag strip, local circuit, or Auto-X course. Includes both ride height and damping force adjustment to allow the driver to dial in the suspension for various surface conditions.

Couple weeks ago a set of Skunk2 Pro S II coilovers were installed on the 2010 Honda Civic Si. Today the same car came back to have the Skunk2 coilovers replaced for a set of TEIN Super Street dampers.

Stability, comfort and control of the vehicle is now discovered from the newly installed TEIN Super Street. This was some how completely lost when Skunk2 developed the Pro S dampers.
