I met with BryanR this past weekend in Boston, MA for a quick photo shoot of the ViVA Performance Project S60R. I saw some of Bryan's photo's in the following thread, I wanted to see more of his photographing talents!


Bryan - Thanks for taking some time out of your day to snap these great pictures of ViVA Performance Project S60R. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Great looking car; Nice wheels!

One of the pics reminded me of the ill-fated marketing idea of the "sky-hook" 4C system.


Beautiful car. Immaculately maintained and looks to kill.

George what is the extra brace under your car? It looks like some sort of chassis brace. Did I miss a previous thread on this?

That's our lower front chassi brace. PN VP-077205.

Stock front springs, rear TME sedan springs.

What's the reason you did not also go with front TME springs?

The front was low enough for my tastes.

The wheels are 18x8" with 235/40-18 Vredestein tires.

Does this affect the handling in one way or another since the characteristics are not the same for all springs?

My handling is significantly improved. It is perfectly balanced with oversteer easily achieved in sharp turns and more throttle. This is how the R should have been from the factory.

Who wants a ride?

They are decent tires, but they can't handle what the R is throwing their way anymore. They are the weakest link in my entire suspension setup now!

You need to inflate them more

They are already at 40psi!

Helmut, you need to get a ride in my R. The tires aren't sticky enough for my driving style
