On the kb1, how did you get the camber angle straight after lowering? Looks sick

I am a form follows function theorist and I am running only natural camber with laser alignment and have intentionally resisted from tucking the wheels or tires in all of my builds.. thanks for the positive words!

largus coilovers

Are you using the adjustable spring perch in the rear? Just trying to figure out how you got it so low?

Yes

Yes I am, and with much discussion with Jason KB2, I had decided to cut one revolution out of the rear coils. This has made my rear some what softer and this is not a bad thing. In actuality I have raised my car to the point that the rear Mugen under bumper would not snag on my parking spot blocks! The Mugen aero makes the car appear lower than it is. In actuality I have reduced the ride height 65 to 70mm from stock front and rear. if you have any other questions, feel free to use facebook messenger. Takanobu Roo Roo Kitao

Can you post a clearer shot of your phone holder? How is it installed? Thanks. Your car is ridiculously nice. Do you have auto close on trunk too?

So back to the KB1, I have finally decided to begin the postponed project. Currently on Largus Coilovers and BBS LM 19x8.5 +32 with 245/40-19R Yokohama Tires.

The goal here is to build a genuine M1.

The real JDM story is that the KB1 Legend M1 complete package was a 100 limited edition dealer installed option and was available from 2004 and was sold out by mid year 2005. I am believer and owner of the KB1-120xxx , 2007 final edition with the numerous refinements and updates and I will be using a donor 2004 car for this build. The ONLY way to own a 07 M1 was to build it this way. Part for Part and Mugen Complete. Stay Tuned.
