Some of the best wheels available for the Evo right there. The only downside is how Rota copied them with the Torques, but I know that in person, the CR KAIs look WAY BETTER than Rota Torques - you just can't convey that in pics.

As for the "drop," I suggest not thinking of it as a "drop," because that means you'll get lowering springs that harm the handling dynamics of the car and blow your shocks. Think about improving the overall suspension with a set of coilovers, and when you do that, you will end up with a lower ride height that also provides the improved visual effect you're hoping for...

Yeah Warr, drop was a wrong choice of word... I meant coilovers and am struggling to find some decent ones here.. they have Tein flex and D2's available at the moment..

Is running with no center caps a new style I am not aware of yet? The wheels themselves look awesome, I was just startled to see them on the car without any center caps.

Not sure if it's the same with the Work rims, but my knockoff Rota Torques fit so that the hub pushes through the center of the rim far enough that the cap won't fit.

dxbtune forgot to mention that Cusco 02R coilovers are also available here.

Strangely enough, the TEIN Flex is only cheaper than the Cusco 02R by just US$180.

Are TEIN Flex coilovers any good for track, or would we be better off going with the 02R coilovers?

The Tein Flex are generally frowned upon in the Evo community, but I know nothing about those Cuscos.

You'll have to give us the feedback, since you're the only one who has them.

Be sure to get them aligned and corner balanced so that you get the most out of them.

Doh!
Ok ill let you know...
Ghoonk on this forum warned me to do my alignment asap after the install...
Ill let him test them out after they are on the car and see how he reviews them..
Aparently Cusco is popular around the middle east and well reputed I wonder why they arent in the states...

Cusco is reputable everywhere, but not necessarily for their coilovers.

The alignment is important, but the most crucial element is to get corner balanced.

Cusco 02R > HKS Hipermax 2

some people find that

Zeal Super Function_R > Ohlins Flag-L > Ohlins PCV > JIC > Cusco 02R > TEIN Super Racing > HKS Hipermax Pro > HKS Hipermax 2 > TEIN Super Street > TEIN Flex

Of course, all that subject to the skill of the installer in setting up the coilovers right

Not if you disregard outside factors and base it primarily off the quality and ability of the dampers themselves.
