Nopes nothing else Mohit. Am happy with the current mods and honestly haven't been able to drive it to the top speed in 5th gear.

Next on the list is a suspension mod job for better handling. Work has kept me a little busy , maybe in a months time or so will get the suspension hardened .

Thats great news riju. Where are you planning to go for the suspension job? Can we expect your car for the trackdays after this?

Hahaha Adi' my friend , you must be kidding . Track-days and My car maybe Track-days and My Camera is a good combination.

Playing around with stock suspension has been ruled out as of now. We are looking at getting Koni's some time soon, but then again depends on how much dabbu we have .

Why was stock suspension mods ruled out? Last time we talked you were not in favour of the Koni's.

After driving on the Mysore road, i understood why you are on 205 15 inchers and why u wanna stiffen the suspension...so what do you keep it pinned at? 150 or 160?

Mohit my only gripe earlier was that Koni's were a bit too expensive and couldnt afford it.
Also I still havent got clear info. as to if the stock suspension is hardened, can it be reversed ?

Another issue is that if I sell the car, not everyone(non tbhp'ians) would understand what each mod is all about and the value of it. So just in case I plan to get rid of it , I wish to sell the car stock.

Naah I am a sedate driver and floor it only once in while when I find these innova's trying to bully around on SH-17.

BTW the Dicor 2.2 VTT has been rigging my brains since yesterday .

Koni's is worth the money. If you are selling then you can exchange your Koni fitted shocks with some other baleno guy (like me for eg) and sell you car with stock shocks.

Stiffiening usually they put stiffer springs from gujli into your car. Konis are a different world altogether and worth the money and effort.

Hi,

They cannot be reversed as such. The person would have to remanufacture/assemble the internals to make them soft/OE spec which would lead to spending the same amount of money paid for hardening them.
