    JRZ RS Pro coilovers

    I don't know much about this setup but just though the picture looked awesome. Not sure on the pricing, specs, etc., but I know that VAC carries them:

    Yeah, JRZ has never been known to be cheap, but they sure as hell look awesome. Ive seen them installed on an M5 before, the car sat nicely. I didnt get to drive it, but the owner said it felt amazing.

    We sell a lot of JRZ suspension kits. Just last week we fit:
    -RS Pro w/ optional quick disconnect to a N55 335i w/ full M3 conversion
    -RS1 to a 335d w/ most M3 bits

    I have an RS kit going on an IP e36 M3 tomorrow, and we have 2 more IP E36 M3s in house that we upgraded to RS last season. I stock JRZ kits.

    Long story short: you get what you pay for. Jan, the founder of JRZ revolutionized the game and its quite obvious when you switch to his dampers. I can custom valve a damper set to your specific needs - no worries Click here to enlarge

    LMK if you have any specific questions.

    I know this isn't usually the goal but what about setting one up for drag racing?

    My question is would this one be dampened to work in that fashion or would it require a different approach?

    Mike,

    Sorry to step in here, but I'm the only one that I know of to take a high-end road race suspension (Moton) to the drag strip, and adapt it for use there.

    Sticky,

    You can set it up for both street and drag strip pretty easily with the right tools. It will depend a LOT on the tire package you use as well, but I found the biggest gains from adjusting reservior pressure versus damping. (It is in effect changing spring rates)

    I think a lot more emphasis in the drag world is on the front suspension, as the cars usually have a front weight bias. With BMW, I've found both static and dynamic loads on the front suspension with weight transfer to be pretty consistent. The bottom line for me is what you can do to work on occilations on the rear tire, and that comes down to how finely a damper can control motion...small motion. High end dampers are great at this....I never had any issues with wheel hop on the 330Ci.


    The best way I can explain what a good damper can do, is that it feels like gravity changes. I chassis will to unbelievable things...

    Sorry I missed this. Our 10second E92M3 ran on both the road course (PSS and R6) and drag strip (ET Streets) with virtually the same exact suspension settings. We run triple adjustable Nitrons on that car. So Sticky, yes.
