Has anyone heard about them? I did hear that they are very resistant to arch loss and might be something for futher leaf guys to look at. I heard they were a different composition or something.

2nd i don't want to start a aguement but i think that dyno was way off not the springs. everyone check the warranty with your springs. hypercoil stands behind there springs with in 2% of there mark rate afco sends behide there's 1% of the hight which a spring will never lose its hight. i have turned in a couple of hypercoil springs one off three and another off five pounds and got new ones free of charge.

I just looked up their web site becouse my boy's gonna run a leaf spring factory stock. It says they are made of an Epoxy Matrix Composite material. It's supposed to last 5 times longer and you don't need to keep the weight off of them when hauling or in the pits. I couldn't find a price, but they do mention that they are more expensive. I'm going to call and get more info, may even try a set on a modified . Here's the web address. visionmotorsports.com

We just got back from trade show/auction in DeMoines Iowa, Hypercoils had a booth there, got a good look at the new leaf springs. The Multi rated spring only weights 9lbs and the mono spring weights 6lbs. They had a set there that was ran 40 nights, and still had same arch as new set there. You could stand on springs and could not tell the difference in the used set and new set. "I WAS IMPRESSED" especially since my FR-1 chassis is a Leaf Spring type chassis. The cost ranges from $225.00 to $270.00 EACH depending on spring rate, and thats RACER Price, was told could be bought a little cheaper. I heard today that Bloomquest was going to try a set. THEY ARE LEGAL EXCEPT FOR IMCA AS FAR AS I WAS TOLD, (But i dont see anything in imca rules under suspension that says they are illegal. Will have to check into it. For the cost of buying springs during the season, they seem to be worth the money. I will wait for more test results, but thinking about a pair for my mod.
