softer springs? i feel the stock springs are way too sof already...how much top speed does it get with the 2 speed and everything stock...

the stock springs are way too hard and the car tends to hop with those springs...u should easily hit 55-60kph with the 2 speed

i dunno....i think your mistaking...cuz compared to my stock street force springs them things are really soft...this is rs4 from back in the day where the exhaust still comes out the back...
