Moton Sexy Time

Just got back from the PRI show, where I saw the new Moton Street Sport suspension for the E92 M3. These were designed as an alternative to those who did not want to run the Moton Club Sports (with canisters).

Some specs:
  • Seperate Compression (7) and Rebound (7) controls
  • Springs fit original upper mounts
  • Ride height adjustable
  • Unique blow off valve system for compression and rebound controls
  • Integrated reservoir for easy installation
  • Lightweight dual tube design
  • Larger piston rod diameter
  • "Track" kit allows for use of variable rate race springs and bearing plates

No list price at this time.

Nissan GTR kit is also being produced at this time, as well as E60 M5 and E63 M6.

Plans for E36 M3 (not sure why) and E46 M3 kits are forthcoming.

That's all the info I have at the moment.

Because E36s are very popular in BMW Club racing.

If an E36 is being club raced, why stop at the Street Sports? Just get the Club Sports. Again, the Street Sport is designed for those who drive their cars daily...with occiasional track days.

So if the 335i 2-way kit is $7k.... what'll the M3 kit be, $8k?

Either way, sexy time indeed and probably worth it.

Do you have EDC?

If not, you'd be a PERFECT candidate for these. Call me at the shop for more information.

Club sports are illegal in stock and prepared classes of BMWCCA. Remote canister shock absorbers are not allowed. I believe this is case in SCCA and NASA as well. Modified classes like EP (SCCA) and C-mod (BMWCCA) do allow remote canister shocks, but who would run club sports in those classes? The club sports are not race shocks.

Not true. You can run whatever you want in NASA GT series and SCCA (assuming you are not in T2). BMWCCA is a little silly on this constraint in that they allow the JRZ integrated canister shock, but no motons. Only a matter of time before it's legal.

Spoke to Moton USA this AM regarding the suspension.

The E92 M3 suspension pictured are samples, produced just 2 days before the PRI show. They are going to be testing the setup very shortly, on a street car. ETA on availability will most likely be sometime after Jan 09.

Based on the Nissan GTR price point, the BMW E92 M3 setup may be slightly more (if not the same) in price. List price on the kit is $4695. The Race Kit (which includes camber plates, race springs, tender springs, rear mounts) lists for $1295. Again, this is based on Nissan GTR pricing.

For those in the NJ/NY/CT area, you can look to us for local installation and purchase in the future.
