Hi guys, we recently completed a VRH lift system for a forum member,

KWV3 coil overs were utilized as well as our own monoball upper mount conversion and Swift Springs.

VRH applications are available for all coil overs.

Lift amount is approx 2.5" and response is lightning quick.

The trunk mounted power unit features quick release connections, so removal at the track is very easy.

The system is suppled with a prewired control harness that features a separate shutoff switch for the compressor, for the situations where the compressor cycling is undesirable

Total system weight is approx. 20 lbs

Feedback will be available shortly as well :)

Is it fully adjustable, or is it only a fully slammed or fully raised setup. Like, can you drive around at 30% height?

The design of the system is to remain in the lowered position, and then lift to clear obstacles such as driveways, speed bumps potholes etc.

Optimal handling will be in the lowered position, however driving in the lifted position for extended periods of time is possible.

Thanks

Hi, our VRH system requires an adjustable coilover suspension for installation.
We can offer coilovers if you have not bought them already.

Pricing of the VRH system is based on which coilovers you have, and what parts
are necessary to outfit the lift canister to the damper.

Base price for front only is $2100
Base price for front and rear is $3100

Thanks :)

Ravi

Yikes!

So it's $5200 for the lift kit minus the coil over suspension?

It's $3100 for the full setup but $2100 if you only want to do the front.

I have been speaking with Ravi on the phone and will be ordering his lift system the first part of the week. I am really impressed with what I have learned so far about his product (development and materials) and the conversations we have had on the phone. I will be sure and post up a full review of the product once mine is installed and functioning.

Could the lift full up be used for a GTR in Rallycross? Wild idea huh? :irock:

Doesn't sound like there is any position between full down and full up.

Sorry about the long wait for an update guys.  My local shop GST Motorsports has been crazy busy,  but all we are waiting for now is some Megan adjustment extender knobs for the rears to come in and we can get it installed.  I'm hoping for sometime next week.  Then I can finally be free of all this stupid wood for the steep driveway lol!!!

Interesting product!

So The system weighs 20lbs in total, how much of this weight does the pump account for?
