10 years of Battle Version

One of the 4 links

Back in the early days of Corolla tuning in the states.  The only way to get a hold of the sexiest of  suspension bits and other performance parts, was either to buy and get it shipped from Japan, or have it custom made.  Neither method was cheap.  Fortunately, an out of the boxing thinking hawaiian who also owned a Corolla decided to make parts.  This was the birth of Battle Version by Alex P.

After driving Corolla for a little over a year, on a basic suspension of springs and shocks.  I decided it was time for a suspension addition.  I was one of the first to pick up the 5 link kit and was very excited to try it out.  It was a very beefy setup right out of the box.

After 10 years of service I still have the same links I first bought from Alex P.  From canyons to the track, hardparking at meets and shows, the links have held up to whatever I threw at it.  A testament to the strength of Battle Version parts.
