Never really understood why people refer to people, specifically males, as "girls" in a derogatory manner.
Right.... I'm not the one posting retarded b/c racecar photos.

I would explain but it won't help you.

Actually its not the spring, the shock controls the spring. So if you have a "bouncy" car that means your shocks are not properly controlling the springs.

16kg rear spring is 900lbs which isn't that "stiff" on the e9x chassis. With good dampers 1000lbs+ will still be street compliant, it'll be a firm ride but not bone jarring stiff nor annoyingly bouncy.

IYR, I supported getting a great suspension over adding hp. Guess you missed that. Not such a great cop I guess.
No I'm not the forum police, I just found it funny that you went completely OT as you still are in this FS thread. Then you post "I think AE should start a new thread"... Well shit, if you didn't post all that junk then they wouldn't need a new thread.

IYR, I don't care what you support or said. It has nothing to do with the sale of the Ohlins, I don't need a cheerleader on my side.




Back to the Ohlins, and not the drama queens!

Regardless of what I said in the past, you still continue to make OT posts yourself.

If you reallllly want someone to stop going OT, then you yourself should stop going OT; this post I quoted is itself OT.
I am not preaching that you should stop going OT, you are preaching that I should go OT, thus I don't need to follow by example and stop replying to you.

Don't expect someone to listen to you if you don't lead by example; this goes for everything. I never expect those who work under me to do something, or not do something, if I myself don't lead by example.

Just a small hint: if you reply to me and go OT, you're not leading by example; just a helpful hint!


Nonetheless, even if I deleted my own posts, it's meaningless as there are several posts by numerous members that would in turn also need to be deleted (to take all of the OT posts out).
Quicker and more efficient for one individual to do one act rather than multiple individuals doing multiple acts; simple and basic principles of life.

Hi,

new around here. Not very familiar with 4-wheel suspensions but pretty familiar with ohlins goodies for the 2-wheel toys. Ohlins tend to have a narrower "sweet spot" compared to say penske counterparts.,, meaning they have to be dialed in just right to have them work really well... often requires a knowledgable technician by your side. However, when dialed in, there arent many better out there. Also, the top shelf suspension goodies should be serviced relatively frequently (bc they are made for racing!).

16kg rear spring is 900lbs which isn't that "stiff" on the e9x chassis. With good dampers 1000lbs+ will still be street compliant, it'll be a firm ride but not bone jarring stiff nor annoyingly bouncy.
You can have a higher rate spring then the shock was valved for, which is the case with lowering springs and EDC shocks (why H&R springs feel bouncy on our cars) and this is the most common case of a bouncy feel on a lowered car. The car rides on springs, the amount of compression and rebound of those springs is controlled by the shocks.
So 80% of the time when people complain of a bouncy car, they have the wrong spring rates vs matched shocks.

If you install 1000lbs. springs over the e9xm3s EDC shocks, your going to have a 'bone-jarring' ride. You have to match springs to a chassis, then have properly valved shocks to match the springs and suspension travel.

These Ohlins will have their spring rate range and suspension travel range.
If you put street rate springs on them (say 600/400) the shocks will have to work harder and be rebuilt more often. The ride will be better then OE as these shocks can handle a wider range of compression and rebound.
Like i said, that would be a waste of talent (like using a helicopter to fly 300 feet). These shocks should be used on the track with proper springs.

Ohlins, Penske and Sachs Motorsport = the best motorsport shock technology on this rock. The 2-wheel Ohlins market is what keeps the bills paid.

What made the purchase easier was the detailed information that Casey@Ae performance gave me. And also my car's weight and power set was almost 1:1 to their race car. So with that I will know that exactly what it's like to drive a "race " car with mega power and the handles to match that power. The only difference will be the "aero" on their car compared to mine but I'm not that far off.

Never the less I'm extremely excited
