DGR Suspension

Just wanted to give a big shout out to Russ at DGR Suspension! Russ is sending us a set of his track coilovers for our PROJECT HEX13! Russ was great to work with and we’re super excited that he wants to help our project out! We’re also going to be providing all of his company stickers so this has been a great relationship for both of us.

Be sure to get over to their all new website and online store to check out what they might have for you vehicle. They have TONS of applications. I was surprised to see so many different options, not to mention, the fact they they have shock dyno proof and all the tech to back up their claims. Definitely a great move from your typical imported coilover!

We’ll be sure to post up pictures when the suspension gets here! Thanks again Russ!

Introducing Project HEX13 (Parts i – iii)

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

We here at ihatestickers.com have started a project car! We’re hoping to get this car finished by Carlisle so we can debut it there! If not, whatever the next show after that is when we’ll bring it out! :) Anyways, we’re giving some other companies a chance to get some exposure on our blog, especially some of our sticker customers and their friends. We encourage you guys to spread the word about our project and we’ll continue to post updates about it. We’ll also be featuring select companies who have decided to help us out with this build.

Some details about our build:

  • 1989 Nissan 240SX Coupe
  • Driver: Mike “Peacock” Centola
  • Motor: Fully Built SR20
  • Suspension: TBD
  • Electronics: TBD

As you can see, we are still working out the details of the project. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t get started!!!!
