For the Track:
  • ESS VT2-600
  • JRZ RS Pro
  • Vorshlag Camber/Caster plates
  • RD Sport Sway Bars
  • Volk TE37SL 18"
  • Michelin Cup Tires
  • Endeless Brembo Pads
  • Alekshop CWB (corner weight balanced)
  • Alekshop Alignment
  • Alekshop RoadForce
  • AiM Solo DL

For the Street:
  • Combox retrofit
  • V1 Mirror detector








Setting the pressure







CWB

After





Done, time to enjoy it ...















Enjoy!

Well that is one heck of a way to improve handling, add power, and set it up for the track!

JRZ RS Pro are amazing dampers! Must feel amazing both on the street and track!

Did your client have any lap times before and after the JRZ RS Pro?
What spring rates are they running?

Great work guys!

We don't have any track time before the suspension was installed.

We actually had to change springs 3 times to make it right and I would need to look up what we decided to go with.

If any of you decide to go with JRZ, please spend a few extra $$$ and get Vorshlag CP . GC CPs are not a good match for this car.

Being the 3rd time at Laguna Seca, my customer did pretty good ... his time was improving every session and I believe the best time was 1:45

A bit more downforce would definitely help to keep the car planted going from T11 to T2. Once you go over the crest and land at T1 , the car feels a bit shaky as it gets very light at 125-127mph ...

We also used street pads on the rear so when you brake hard at T2 the rear doesn't lock up like it does with Pagid RS19 ...

We are going back this Wednesday so hopefully it will go down to 1:42 or so

That's my kind of mods, all go.

I would love to have the same suspension setup later down the road.

Great setup.

Nice setup!

I'd really like to know why GC camber plates "are not a good match for this car"?

The plate with the 3 studs tend to bend even at 13lbs of torque ... GC recommends 18lbs which will result in pulling one of the studs from the plate ... Also very noisy ... We have had 4 cars with the issues with GC plates ... One of them went back directly to GC and they were unable to fix it and offered my customer a refund. We of course were not compensated for the labor time and this is why we don't install GC anymore.

Vorshlag so far trouble free ...
