The BFG MaxR now features upgraded TT RS uprights!

The uprights correct problems created from lowering the car. Basically as you start lowering, you have a tendency to alter the stock geometry in a negative way, if you go too far, which can introduce bump steer. The TT RS suspension was designed to be lower than the Golf R, so a lower upright was created which helps correct some of the geometry alterations.

Another added benefit of the uprights is strength and weight. The TT RS uprights are much stronger (we've actually seen the OEM GTI parts crack on our race cars) and they drop a healthy 4 LBS on each front wheel (from 10lbs to 6lbs).

Not too bad!

Light: TT RS
Dark: Golf R

sound choice. Front arms? Are they the newer mkvi style, or the heavier mkv?

Damn that's nice. Love suspension upgrades!!

Arin, are the TTRS parts a bolt on swap or do they require modification to fit?
