could be the rim change. could be ur coils are softer now. could be the timing on ur switch from when u were using taller tires.. the taller tire gives you a lil more bounce when ur hopping. thats one of the reason u see some people running a 13 or 14 but using a larger tire

I hop on 13's and I believe its harder to achieve higher inches when hopping on 14's or stocks. I think its from the tire size and amount of air in them. I don't know I could be wrong and there's more to it. I noticed that hoppers in LRM shows use 14's with bigger tires, I've never really take notice them using 13's. But I use Black Magics's comp cylinders and not those huge ones cause I was told they're more for double pumps.

I meant its harder to hop higher with 13's. (Correction on 1st. Sentence).

i believe that is one of my prob the 13 i mean. As for the cold cold weather it doesnt really get cold down here if anything for about a week tops at a time but it wasnt cold at the time i hopped my car.
