we ran them four five races, they are great increased side bite considerably, but the leaf folded about fives back from front bolt, they said we over loaded the spring, horse ****!!! my suggestion dont buy them..

I have one Hypercoil leaf- worked great until RR tire let go and wrapped tight around hub/caliperand busted leaf. Willing to sell if anyone is interested $75 + shipping. Put steels on after and had to tighten up the 5th coil a bunch and add rear weight to get as much forward bite.

I should specify that one is broken, and one is good. The good one is for sale. They did wrap nicely- much better than the steel leafs.

hi dirtmod0 thats what i was talking about how did you like it i was thinking of trying this because i am having problems with the rr leaf going flat(and i dont want to use a stiffer spring like how the car works) so i would think a hpercoil composit on the rr would help out and still run the stacked on the lr did you run a mono on the lr or stacked ?

side bite is unreal, had to free up the car a bit. you have to be careful when the track gets rough they seem not to do good when rough thats when ours got bucked up. we always run multi left,mono right, even with steel rr we havent had any problems with it going flat what kind of ride heights are you running?
