Did you compare the RS1 and DFV on the street AND track?

What are the max spring rates the F and R e92 M3 DFV dampers capable of handling?
You will have to loosen up the nut and bolt to adjust ride height. The main purpose of this set up is not to load or pre-load the spring.

Yes, just the main spring...see photo. Even with the use of a helper, the height adjustment is not affected. And here is link as well:

Not on the track yet, but road feel and runs through the very rough road, mountains and canyons tell me the dampers are more precise than the RS1.

Since the R&T has such a wide range of adjustments, I am confidant that it can handle 450-500F and 800-900 rear without any issues.
