GSR wheels susp and brakes

Someone needed to start a thread in this section.

So I say we discuss how crappy the GSR's wheels, suspension and brakes are compared to the MR's.
Go go go!!!

Actually the reviews i've read said there wasn't a noticeable difference between the way the GSR and MR handled. So I don't think the suspension is much better. If you want the MR breaks I'm sure you can just buy them from Mitsu or maybe even brembo, probably will just be a direct bolt on.

or... you could just get an MR and have the better brakes right off the bat.

Right off the bat? When is said 'bat' flying in? Looks like the GSR is going to be the Evo X of choice, this year at least.

Haha, youre canadian!!! I guess you guys don't have all the same "sayings" The phrase "right off the bat" isn't referring to the animal. Its a phrase that means, right from the start.

Ho ho ho, Green Giant!

Dude, I know we sometimes sound funny, but we speaka da same English as you's crazy Yanks!

What I meant was that you are still waiting on your MR (I changed the meaning of what you said, such that the MR is now the bat and it is no where to be found), and you will still be waiting for some time, when all these other Evo X folks have been rocking their GSR's and enjoying themselves.

Ok well the MR isn't out yet so I was just pointing out that fact that it would not be hard to get the upgrades. Also a lot of people prefer the manual gearbox to the paddle shifts so that puts the MR out of the question.
