No. I don't ever see the price on the Dinan Stroker go down. I don't see how S65 blocks and heads become significantly more abundant and how the machine work or expertise to build these motors changes. They may make minor adjustments based on future efforts to campaign the engine in Rolex.

Let's talk about the E9X M3 suspension...which I am wholly disappointed in. IMO, it amounts to glorified lowering springs. Compared to their past suspension systems which were excellent AND included dampers. I was really looking forward to some upgraded dampers.

Their exhaust is fantastic!

I have the Stage II + GC plates. I like the subtle drop but I detect a minimal increase in performance. Yes, the car is more neutral with a square tire setup but you still have to wait to put the power down. The rear just runs out of travel and starts bouncing off the bump stops. The hp is useless on exit. I estimate that my 330 (25-30whp less) is about 1-1.5 seconds faster per lap, per mile because I'm getting back on power way sooner and much more aggressively.

I've since went from RS3s to NT01s which have helped keep the rear more stable and I think puts it on pace with my 330. I know I'm still crushing the bump stops on the exits of tighter corners.

I want to get the TC Kline D/A or maybe the KW CS but this car still needs to be comfortable. I do think the TCKs can be comfortable but I don't want to take that risk at this point.

I have Dinan Stage 3. You should add the carbon rear toe links and carbon strut tower braces from Dinan. My car handles incredibly well.

Don't doubt that those things help but think bigjae is saying needs strut and shock change as well to truely work. Dinan spring rates can't go up much on stock components.

Carbon strut tower braces? Really? That's gonna make it handle better than the strut tower braces it came with?

Yep, every component matters - Sum of its parts.

I have the rear toe links and they do absolutely nothing. Back on the stock links which look stronger than the dinan links

Interesting. I felt they improved both acceleration and braking.
