Im looking for a road racer that is currently looking into their suspension. I have this ambition of mine to make one hell of a handling car using UPR products. I know they are mainly known for straight performance, but with the right products and spring rates I believe it can be done.

I just need one guy that we can put together a package and build on from there. Of course pricing will be no where near advertised. Please message me if your interested. Consider this as a partial sponsorship.:salute:

Just curious, does UPR offer a panhard bar, watts link, and/or torque arm? If not, there's no point for any serious road racer to take you up on your offer (at least for fox/SN95 platforms).

You make a good point. The 05's and up its available.

+1 to that. If they don't offer either then you're pinned to the 05+ stock panhard cars if you want to use only UPR. There's a lot more people playing with fox and SN95/New Edge cars

I trust MM a lot more when it comes to drastic suspension changes like Mcstrut to coilover, quadra bind to TA, etc

Yeah you guys make a good point. I still think it can be done but one would have to mix and match parts.

Once upon a time I along with a fellow track buddy came in and talked about this very thing to a gentleman there. I forget who he was but he was in charge at the time. Not sure if he's still there. Basically told him to sell us on the idea of using UPR parts for road racing vs the others. He had some ideas about adding metal here and there to the current line of parts for added strength. The price was very tempting to but in the end it was hard to buy parts for road coarse use from a company that's never been in that market. I believe the main fear was the use of the thin walled chromoly tubbing that you guys use for weight advantage. We just didn't think it could hold up under heavy turns. I think it's a good idea and a start, to take a car and start running test like your planning. Big market the road racing deal. Not a bad idea to try and get a piece of it.

Would the same apply to the mild steel k member?
