97 test days at the track
872 million data points
2682 gigabytes of video footage
3742 gallons of gas
9 sets of brake pads
These are the numbers that culminate in today's announcement.
CounterSpace Garage is proud to present the CSG Spec Tein SRC for performance enthusiasts. Originating from years of testing by CounterSpace Garage at the race track, Tein has customized the SRC with specifications developed by CounterSpace Garage. Optimized for high performance driving, these coilovers are designed to maximize grip both on the street and at the track.
Developed from actual competition, TEIN was able to create a fully adjustable damper that can be easily tuned for any track and weather conditions. Super Racing Dampers utilize a full-length adjustment system to allow shock length and spring pre-load to be adjusted independently. Separate 16 - way adjustments for compression and rebound damping enable the user to fine tune for any situation. TEIN has incorporated both camber and caster adjustment into the front pillow ball upper mounts for strut type vehicles. External reservoirs on SA type dampers allow for added oil capacity. Spring rates and shock valving were derived from many years of motorsports support, to provide the ultimate damper. Designed and tested for by advanced and professional drivers who are seeking complete damper tuning capability. [/quote]

Buttonwillow Raceway 13CW track configuration is a very famous race track for time attacking in California. It's trademark rough surface, rhythmic driving line, elevation changes, and various types of corners make it one of the most demanding tracks in the world. It is here where many different suspension systems and aero setups are developed and put to the test. Breaking the 2-minute mark on the 13CW configuration using street tires (140TW+) is the guideline for a fast driver and properly setup car.
CSG's sponsored driver, Ryan Houck, takes his 2009 Honda S2000 out to Buttonwillow with our CSG Spec valved TEIN Super Racing Circuit (SRC) coilovers on 16kg/mm springs. Prior to this setup, Ryan was on KW Variant 3 coilovers and wanted to compare the KWs to the newly acquired TEIN SRCs. Needless to say, Ryan broke into the 1:59s during his suspension testing, making him the first street tired (140 TW+), naturally aspirated S2000 on factory OEM aero additions to break the 2 minute barrier. Check out Ryan's 1:59 video below!

TEIN SRC - CSG Spec Coilovers
It almost feels like yesterday, but our testing on TEIN Super Racing Circuit (SRC) coilovers on our BRZ yielded some amazing results. TEIN SRCs is TEIN's motorsports grade 2-way adjustable compression/rebound suspension kit. On the first day of testing on the very first set of TEIN SRCs in the US, we lapped an amazing 2:01 with just Hankook RS3s and worn brake pads (the TEIN R&D Engineer was sitting shotgun with our beloved CSG driver). That lap record was held for nearly a year before it was finally taken down by Maxrev's Street Tuned BRZ, also fitted with TEIN SRCs. An amazing feat for Toyota/Subaru's much anticipated sports car, as well as, a testament to the capabilities of TEIN's SRC 2-way adjustable coilover.
Since then, we have been the street tire record holders for multiple Southern California tracks with only three basic modifications to our car: TEIN SRC coilovers, Hankook RS3s, and Project Mu 999 Front/Rear brake pads. We eventually added the Essex AP Sprint Kit to reduce our brake pad consumption from all the testing, driving instruction, and joy rides we have provided to the community.
Check out a video of our Maxxis RC-1 testing in the winter of 2012 when we ran a 2:00 and nearly broke into 59s on the first day of testing:

Project Mu 999 Front - BRZ/FRS - $300.00
Project Mu 999 Rear - BRZ/FRS - $300.00
