    Thank you everyone for your kind reviews!

    Here is my little project which is about bringing out the bad-ass in the Pessima.

    Do you have questions, or want to make a suggestion?
    Please post them under Discussion after reading the FAQ below :)


    Will you make mods for 200BX?
    Maybe in the future. Personally I'm a bigger Pessima fan than 200BX which is why I made this mod to begin with, in order to make the Pessima rival the 200BX as a drift car. That said, some simple mods might be looked into in the future, like increased steering lock for example. I'm however not interested in making cosmetic upgrades for the 200BX.

    Will you make a V8 swap for the Pessima?
    At this point I'm not sure. LS swapped japanese cars isn't something I'm particularly fond of. If I make a V8 option it would be something more like a lexus 1uz-fe.

    Why are the spring rates not adjustable?
    They are. However I changed the format a bit with this mod. Instead of adjusting the spring rate from the tuning menu, you now have to go into the parts menu and physically change springs.

    Why do the coilovers have less tuning options than normal?
    I decided to clean up the tuning menu as much as possible by doing the following:
    Bundeling some options which affect both sides like for example front camber.
    Removing fast/slow damping and knee. Real coilovers usually don't provide progressive or digressive damping unless it's some really high end stuff found in WRC rally cars.
    With the slimmed down tuning menu it should be easier to navigate and work with and still provide everything you need.

    I love this mod and I love drifting in it, but I took away the star because the solid axle rear suspension has wheel hop to no end, and the independent rear suspension gets bucket loads of toe in when put under load. Otherwise amazing mod.

    Is there a possibility where you can add a side exhaust to this?

      I've thought about doing more interesting exhaust configs including hood exit and side exit at some point yes! :)

    Looks great, drives great, not any issue to report here. Hopefully doesn't get destroyed by updates lol. Do you happen to know what the music is in the beginning of the video, though? I'd really like to hear more of it. Thanks, and awesome mod! :)

    3 stars bc we don't have a stock config for the jdm pessima, so we either need to build or own or take away all the discolored parts, stickers, etc, not cause i'm lazy but in general it's just crappy in my opinion

      While you can use the mod in whatever way you want, the purpose of the mod is, and always was drift car. That's all I'm interested in making. I'm not so interested in making stock variations. The stock version would be the normal Pessima without this mod.
