Hey guys,

with winter past us (for the most part), and race season preparations now under way, MFactory/YCW Suspension/SWIFT Springs are now looking for serious individuals to add to our marketing team!

the sponsored driver(s) will be responsible for helping us to promote MFactory/YCW Suspension/SWIFT Springs, in particular, our new range of coilovers: http://www.focusst.org/forum/mfacto...series-coilovers-official-pre-order-list.html







Why MFactory/YCW Suspension/SWIFT Springs?
For those of you whom are not familiar with YCW Engineering, we are the parent company for MFactory (LSD's, Axles, Clutches, Flywheels etc). Whilst MFactory is but a "brand", YCW is the engineering company behind it all, with our own in-house manufacturing facility in Taiwan with several million dollars worth of specialist CNC and Measuring/Diagnosis Equipment.

You're probably wondering why/how a Drivetrain company can develop and manufacture Coilover Kits? Well, the majority of the components that make up a Coilover Kit are machined (which is where we excel over other Coilover brands due to our in-house manufacturing experience), so not only do we do the final assembly of our Coilover Kits ourselves, we machine all of the "machined" components ourselves (and those familiar with MFactory can testify to the quality of our machined components).

As for SWIFT Springs, a lot of you may already be familiar with this brand/company. Founded in 1997 in Tokyo Japan as a motor sports division of Tokyo Hatsujo Manufacturing Co, Ltd (S.W.I.F.T: Springs With Intelligence From Tohatsu), our sole purpose was to demonstrate our superior engineering in springs by developing the next generation of motor sports suspension coil springs. They had to have the best characteristics of any brand or design in the market, which required the springs to be the lightest in weight and most durable, and to exhibit the most linear characteristics while still being cost effective (unlike Titanium). With this in mind, we set out to produce a new material for coil springs: a proprietary steel alloy we call "HS5.TW". This material was created in order to maintain the following 4 factors:

1) The most consistent spring rate throughout the stroke
2) The largest amount of stroke
3) The highest durability against loss of spring height
4) The lightest in weight

Our priority was to achieve the fastest reaction speed possible to get compliance on road surface conditions. Our springs are created with proprietary winding methods, as well as some other trade secrets focused on ensuring our springs separation from the standard market.

SWIFT’s impressive motor sports history dated back to 1998, first was with Nissan Skyline GT-R in the Super Taikyu Endurance championship series in Japan. Then SWIFT got involved with the championship teams in Le Mans 24hrs, Nurburgring 24hrs, Super GT (JGTC), Super Taikyu series, D-1 World Grand Prix, F3, F3000, Formula Toyota, and many other world class races. In 2004, Team Goh Audi R8 won 1st place at the world renowned Le Mans 24hrs race on swift springs

We only just sorted out our deal/status with SWIFT last week regarding marketing/promotion, hence why this was only posted up now :(
