-10/8 GROUP BUY CANCELLED-



UPDATE 8/12
The Pay Now buttons are being nothing but trouble! PayPal has different rules for them than they do if payment is made via your Send Money tab, so I'm going to stop using the buttons.

I have 2 PayPal accounts;
If your funding source is a bank account or PayPal balance, then send your payment of $325 to my Personal account, which is [email protected]

If your funding source is a credit or debit card, then send your payment of $335 (the extra $10 is to cover the 3% fee) to my Premier account, which is [email protected]

UPDATE 8/7
Guys, PayPal is being a pain in my ass. All of a sudden they're enforcing an incoming limit of $500 per month on my Personal account. So unfortunately, I can't accept payment into my Personal account, only the Premier account, or Money Order. Sorry for the hassle.

UPDATE 8/5
We're now accepting payments for the B13 & B14 springs. Please use the PayPal buttons below. Shipping will be calculated once the springs are produced and ready to ship. At that time I will PM you your shipping price, but for now just pay for the springs.

Estimated production time is 9 to 12 weeks after everyone has paid up. I will update this post daily to indicate who we've received payment from.

When paying, you must include your forum name, and whether you want B13 or B14 springs.

I have 2 PayPal accounts;
If your funding source is a bank account or PayPal balance, then send your payment of $325 to my Personal account, which is [email protected]

If your funding source is a credit or debit card, then send your payment of $335 (the extra $10 is to cover the 3% fee) to my Premier account, which is [email protected].

If you'd rather send a money order, mail $325 to:

For any questions, please reply to this thread, or PM me.

Thanks!
Chris


************************************************************

Damn, but you guys have been beating down our doors! Hyperco's getting calls, people are calling Rick's cell phone, I'm getting emails and PM's, and some of you are even threatening to go direct with Hyperco and start your own group buy (ain't gonna happen by the way).

Hyperco will ONLY deal with Rick and me, that's the way it's always been. We all work well together, and it's not going to change.

That said, I'm happy to say we're going to start another group buy for these springs..... with a little twist.

Hyperco's crack engineering staff is going to develop a common front spring to be used on the B13 & B14 chassis. This allows us to run a combination group buy, and get these out to you faster. They can explain it allot better then me, so here's a quote directly from their head engineer.

The B13 and B14 front springs have slightly different spring rates and the checking load and heights are different.

The B13 checking load is 750 lb at 6.525" with a 280 lb/in rate. The B14 spring has a higher checking load of 815 lb at 6.50" with a 300 lb/in rate.

Scenario 1 - If an existing B13 spring were installed in a B14 car, the front would drop an additional 0.26" when compared to the existing B14 kit.

Scenario 2 - if an existing B14 spring were installed in a B13 car, the front end would be lifted approximately 0.19" when compared to the existing B13 kit.

We could compromise and come up with a common front spring that would split the difference on rate and ride height - lifting the B13 about 0.100" and dropping the B14 about 0.100". Given all the different mods these guys are doing - weight reduction, battery relocation, turbos, etc. - I would think they would understand that all of these are going to affect ride height and make it impossible for us to hit a specific target for all cars.

From a feasibility standpoint, this would be a pretty straight-forward design change to implement

There you have it - a common front spring for both chassis with a ride height within one TENTH of an inch of the previously made chassis-specific spring. Pretty nifty, but not surprising since it's coming from Hyperco.

Details on pricing and availability are being worked out, and we expect to have more information in about a week. Our initial guess is a price of $325 per set plus shipping.

In order for the Group Buy to be sucessful, we need to sell at least 25 B13 sets and 25 B14 sets. If we hit our target quickly, we may be able to have more made, but I don't want to penalize you guys who pay early by keeping it open for the stragglers to make up their minds.

I have a list of people who have contacted us since the last group buy closed, and I will be contacting them with a link to this group buy.


That's all I have time for right now. You guys know me, I'll stay on top of this and this will be a sucessful group buy. Updates will be posted as soon as they come in.


So, let's roll on this. Who's in?

About freaking time Chris. . . . . .nah I'm just kidding man but thank you for doing this again.

Considering these things are like gold I might even get 2 sets depending on how the group buy is going and the final results of the custom springs, but I definitely need a set for a B14

Thank You

No funds due yet, and no end date yet either. Give us a little time to get our ducks in a row, and check back on this thread often.

I know it may seem like we're a little premature on this GB, but Hyperco and Rick were getting inquiries up the wazoo, and we just want to let you guys know that we hear you loud and clear, so I wanted to at least get this thing started.

I think I'm going to get rid of my gc's and camber plates for a set of these springs... i rode in two b13 equipped ones and honestly fell in love.

Depending on how long this lasts I may be in...

Final numbers aren't in yet, but the drop will be within .1" of the previous Hyperco's.
