    I'm pretty sure Okayama is the name of the fellow that owns and runs Yashio Factory.

    Although, I thought his racing suit was pink... at least more recently. Maybe back in the day it was just a plain white suit.

      Hmm maybe... first time I saw it, totally accidental find so I bookmarked it and posted here in case someone knows more. Would love to know more about the car.

      However Okayama (TI) means the okayama international circuit

                but tracks in america pale in comparison to how smooth the tracks in japan are. if US had glass smooth tracks i'd run 12kg/14kg rates too...

                  Will your chassis and tires actually benefit from running that high of spring rate though?

                  S-chassis aren't that heavy, and the chassis is not really that stiff, so I don't even know if that high of spring rates would actually do anything other than hurting your hands and bum when you hit the kerbs...

                    I'd rather run large sways and softer springs on shocks with proper valving and compression and rebound adjustment. Dont need that much spring on a car that weighs less than 2600lbs.

                      idk, I run 11k front and 16k rear on my autox civic with a ST rear swaybar.
                      It's very neutral.

                      It is ff though.

                        And it's double wishbone, which has a completely different wheel rate than on a 240's MacP front and multilink rear

                          iirc it's the yellow PS13 from AutoSelect.

                          Scroll down the page and you will see the car.

                            Interesting spring rates if so:

                            AUTO SELECT : suspension kit(for circuit)
                            F:EIBACH 12kg/mm
                            R:EIBACH 13kg/mm
