Has anyone found any hood dampers to use with carbon fiber hoods for a GR?I searched and found someone talking about the NRG dampers, but I can't find any for a GR?
Why not just change the gas pressure in the gas spring, or order new ones at a lower pressure? Since the CF hoods are lighter, they should work at a lower pressure, wind notwithstanding.The problem isn't mounting holes, I think all the CF hoods I've seen have the correct mounting for the stock dampers? The problem is the stock dampers being far too strong for a light weight CF hood. If I do have the stock dampers attached when I close the hood it bends the hood up and throws off the alignment. I've also heard of this potentially cracking the hood over time.
Good idea in theory. But, I have not been able to find out how much pressure our OEM ones exert... If we knew that, we could find a set with the correct dimensions, and be set...
No, I do not have to force anything. When you use the both of the stock dampers, it pushes up on both sides a little, creating a small gap between the fenders and hood. But, if you only use one stock damper, it pushes up on the corresponding side.What larger gap?
You mean you force the hood closed with the stiffer dampers installed?
Sheesh. No wonder ppl need to use hood latches.
