Second H&R suspension kit for the Achtuning Golf R

Posted on February 6, 2012 – 11:39 am

H&R sent us a second set of coil-overs to test on the Golf R on Friday. After the first Test N’ Tune session we felt we could use something a little stiffer and the H&R RSS coil-over kit┬áis designed for the committed motorsport enthusiast who is willing to relinquish some ride comfort in return for ultimate handling performance.

After installation we threw the Golf R on our alignment rack for corner-balancing before heading to the Test N’ Tune session on Saturday. The stiffer suspension helped shave seconds off already good lap times so we are very pleased with the results, though we’d definitely not recommend the set-up for the typical street-driven car.
