Hmm these kinda interest me. I've been looking at the KW V3's because I don't want BC or others like them but idk if they worth the $1400 extra. I won't really be doing any tracking. If I do it'll be maybe once or twice a year. 99% of the time it'll be daily driven and some random canyon driving.

yea, I only get on a few times a year but unless im racing for times, or tournament points I cant see the point of 3k purple coilovers. Everyone has different purchase points though and that doesn't bother them.

Why is there an impression that Taiwan is a third world country?

Boy, I kind of want to compare these to the GMPP kit. I am not mr suspension adjustment guy, but this should take some of the worry out about how it might ride and setting the height correctly.

Hey, any new option for the market is good, especially a lower price one.

For limited support this car has youre right a new option is good. The mustang has twice as many options as us, but even as we get something new there will always be someone to blindly bash it even though it is performing well for me with no issues so far

8/4.

NNJR SCCA and MSNE are always at Met Life.

My car will be there on 8/4, but I'll be camping on the AT so stop by and ride along with Jeff if you want. My car is on MCS.

Fox news tells them "its China" and on a map there close to each other...


I have used K sports on some rides where there arnt any other options besides Motion and dont have a problem with cheaper products if they get the job done.


Riding on DSSV shocks hasnt convinced me $5000 shocks are that much better than $1000 shocks if designed and set up correctly.

If you're looking for seat time, MSNE has Test & Tune in morning - basically limited attendance event in morning and then Autox ( points event ) starting about 2pm.


In regards to quality of imported coilovers, ran BC coil overs on last car for years, no failures. Little over year on DSSV, both fronts have been replaced due to "clunking" so yeah so much for $2K/each shocks.


KOni still MIA ?
