Lanner can your hub set up for the Mendeola work with the 996TT brakes? I would like to buy the Mendeola front and rear and use the big brakes.

Kevin give me a call and let me know how far until you are ready for your kit. Can we buy your suspension without hubs and buy the Lanner units? I need to get the suspension on in the next month.

Thanks Guys

Yeah,
I can set it up for anything basically. IMHO, that's overkill, the rotors (24lbs ea) will be boat-anchors, but I guess the composite does help offset the weight. The Boxster S setup is a good compromise between performance and weight, on lighter cars I prefer regular boxster.

No return email in 10 days. No return phone calls either in those 10 days. Suspension pre-paid in full just to "get in line". No delivery date. I would just sell off the 993TT brake calipers and source some Cayman S ones if that would speed things up for existing design, but no response from Kevin. Week 5 of waiting for suspension is still no fun...

So it might actually be quicker to ship one from Europe! I think the most frustrating thing is one sees the photos of acres of suspension parts and assembled suspensions which makes you think that delivery is just an assembly away. Kevin call me.

Hi Super RSi.

Would have been good business to let us all know. But thank you for letting me know. We are supposed to have the car at SEMA but not going to make it so that was not helping my attitude. Oh well, next year.

Can not answer you that, as I am only one of his customers. But I can understand you about the show. Earlier this year we were invited to the Car Crazy TV show and we were very late waiting from suppliers. We managed to pull it off at the last minute! So do not lost hope!

Hello, Guys

Sorry I did not post I was going on vacation, however I took my laptop thinking the Hawaii was like the states with wifi in every hotel. It turned out that was not the case. I am back now and trying to get everything back up to speed.

Super RSI what is your true name? I would like to follow up on your kit so I can give you a status on it. Sorry about SEMA, I know how you feel, been there done that.

SEMA is responsible for more ulcers than spicy curry.

Kevin, if you would just return my repeated voice mails or your emails you would have talked to me this week. If you looked at my location and my signature line you would have known who I am. Yet another week goes by...

Well I got fed up and finally just called Mike Mendeola at Mendeola Transmissions today. Very nice guy. It seems there was only six sets of suspensions built in this last run and they should be ready to go to powdercoat maybe today and be finished in a week or two. So says the man. And when these suspensions are delivered that will be the end of Mendeola suspensions. Mike said the low demand is causing him to shut the doors on the Suspension division upon delivery of this build unit. I can only hope that they can stay in the transmission business as I would love to have a Mendeola trans some day. Beautiful work. And hope our suspensions will be too! I told him the way Kevin behaved I thought he might be the nephew he had to give a job to...
