That's a pretty good price for the flex's if they are in pretty good condition so I would probably jump on those.

You can take this for what it's worth, but the last two years the STU national champion driving a Subaru STi won on off the shelf Tein Flex's. Last year Brian Peters whooped us all at the Denver Tour on off the shelf Flex's as well.

Not so hot on the Evo, though. They are frowned upon, but part of that has to do with their cost NEW. You are getting them for $900, so what I'd do is offer $800, sell them for $1200 on EvoM, then get the PIC TSOs for $1550, and you'll have a great setup.

fdiaz, they are what I consider the best setup for under 2k. Instead of linking people to EvoM every time, I'm going to invite them here to educate us all on their great setup.

I don't understand the first question. Is it expected for something to work well on different platforms? That's not often the case.

How? Because most people don't know any better. If you want them, then get them. I've given you my input in an attempt to help you make the best choice.

ive always been under the impression that the evo and sti are similar cars in platform but if i am wrong definatly correct me.

I want a decent setup that will not be bone jarring around town and FUN at autoX not necesarily the best set up car out there. im in SM anyways so theres no way for me to properly prep my car.

Even in its stock form and a new driver i am running within 3-5 seconds of the SM cars and we have a decent region.

thats just my thoughts. im just wondering if they will be an improvement at all or if it is an absolute waste of money.

Yes, of course, they will be an improvement over stock.

The Evo and STI are both AWD and turbo, but they behave much differently.

The PIC TSO's (Tuner Shoot-Out Editions) are a custom setup that we developed in conjunction with Pure Tuning for their Evo8, which was campaigned in the 06 Evo Tuner Shoot-Out. It was the driver's first time in the car with that setup, and his first time at the track CMP, and he managed to land us in 2nd place, .2 off the pace of the first place car in the Street class when all was said and done.

Originally there were no plans to offer the setup for others to purchase, but a decent amount of folks were interested in the setup, and so Pure approached us and asked us to produce this set to their specs, using their specified valving and spring rates, to offer to their customers. It's offered with or without the pre-set camber and height settings as used on the original Pure Evo8. With those settings in place, you're looking a true out-of-the-box ready to race setup.

Ghoonk, click on Noob4life's name and look for his other posts - he only has a few. I asked him to join us from EvoM, because I know he is the man to talk to about these. I believe PIC and Pure Tuning built them together, but I think Pure Tuning is the shop who actually sells them. Anyway, you'll see the contact info in of Noob4life's other posts.
