I've ordered the Street Performance with 10/4 for my R33 GTS-T, also keen to see how they ride, I went around in circles for ages looking at all the options, it does your head in, everyone's opinion is different. But I'm confident I've made the right choice in the end.

Same, but I was too poor for reds so I went blues. I'm not complaining though, although slightly harsh for the street, it has been perfect on the track (14kg front and 9kg rear)

I want to say this is because MCA have always used 'different' sping rates and make the difference up with valving.

Or something. Their numbers have always been signifigantly higher but it doesn't translate to 'more hardness/firmness' as such as if you ran around running 14/11 BC's or Bilsteins or Tein's or Shockworks or etc.

I agree Kinkstaah, high spring rates don't mean everything and it does depend on valving, however having one of the first sets of blues that came off the line I can confirm they are valved somewhat agressive (have heard from someone who had purples say the valving of my blues was a lot harsher). I don't know if this has changed since the blues were first released but they are definitely not valved to be comfortable haha.

As mentioned even in the last year their product range has about doubled and their naming has changed to boot. Makes sense that they're continually refining the product, I guess as they can now say "WTAC Winnars" you'd want to make sure your product is front line and catering to as many needs as you can :P

Their pricing has also had a bump and if you want custom none off the shelf spring rates that's another $50 on top.

But yes high spring rates mean nothing, I was probably one of the first to try out their X-Series range with success and high spring rates back 2-3 years ago, funny enough they didn't even have boxes to fit R33 rear coilovers in so mine came in a king springs box lol 

Dirty plug, I can get MCA stuff too now
