The original VR-4 is all wheel steering but that feature is not something useful to us at the drag strip. So to save weight we eliminated the rear steering controls all together. The hydraulic lines to the rear steering box were removed and new static rear steering arms for alignment were installed.

The VR-4 is also all wheel drive which we have kept. While this makes for some steering difficulties at high speeds (due to needing larger tires in front as well as rear) it provides some extreme traction when launching.

For our suspension struts we chose the TEIN FLEX system. It is one of the best out there in quality and performance for track suspensions.

These are fully adjustable from 0-16 in stiffness which allows us to dial in our suspension very accurately.

While this system also has an EDFC system (control front and rear settings from in the car) we did not install that option because we do not need to change the settings on the fly on a car set up for 1/4 mile drag racing.

All other aspects of the vehicle suspension have been kept stock. The only changes made were to make sure all parts were in spec and in perfect condition. The steering wheel has been changed out to accomodate a removable wheel and one with brake lock control button(s).
