KW sponsored a ton of cars in the VLN - it's not a fair comparison.
I would say that it's very possible that a switch to Ohlins could yield faster lap times.
And i believe it was last years 2-time VLN champions that were running Ohlins.
Also, Eugene ... why do you not have a set of helper springs on that kit?
And how are you reinforcing your rear shock tower to combat the additional force of the springs? = it was not designed for that type of setup in the rear.
