Enough to smoke your oil pan..

H&R races will slightly tuck the front tire.

how else would you pay for them? Cash is the only way.

Why coilovers? Clearly, you don't have enough money for it, settle for decent lowering springs and appropriate shocks. Don't cut corners, going to cost you more in the end, and its dangerous (namely those el cheapo ebay coilovers)

Ireland Engineering springs, and Bilstein Sport shocks are a good, solid budget setup. I ran this in my car a few years back, and I liked them. They were suitable for use on the racetrack and AutoXs.

The H&R cupkit is okay, but for extreme performance useage like AutoX or track, its fairly soft.
