Anyone have any experience with a Koni Yellow set up

Hey everybody hows it going. I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with a Koni Yellow strut and shock set up. I enjoy tracking my 2012 and as of now im lowerd on Eibach prokit with camber bolts, front and rear adjustable sway bars and lower control arms with relocation brackets. I was just wondering if I will notice a improvement on handling with koni yellows or save my money and go coilovers. I daily drive my stang and track it around 6 -8 times a year.

From everything thing I've read, they are the best shocks you can put on these cars. 6-8 visits a year is a bunch in my book, but you will spend real money to go coilovers.

I upgraded to the Koni Yellows a few months ago because everyone recommended them above all others so I installed with the steesa sport lowering springs and FRPP jounce bumpers and man I am pleased. My 14 is a DD but the performance and handling is really impeccable. My younger brother has eibachs on his 08 and I hated the ride, it was real rigid and uncomfortable so I looked elsewhere and I'm so glad I did. I have yet to actually adjust them though...should probably do that to at least exercise the choice to adjust them to justify the extra few $100. I do sort of wish I had coilovers now so I could adjust the height at will but I'm happy with my moderately lowered stance and the soft yet firm handling from the Koni yellows. I found them the cheapest at TMMOTORSPORTS and they were a whopping like $70 total less than everywhere else for the full set so yeah.

I did Koni yellows with:
BMR springs
BMR lower control arm relocation brackets
BMR panhard bar
GT500 strut mounts


All at once. I can tell you I am very happy with the results. I have left the Konis on full soft and have noticed I can take long curved highway ramps at higher speeds than with the stock setup. There are a few spots on my way to work where on these long curved highway ramps I would feel the rear of the car hopping to the side when hitting some uneven spots or expansion joints in the road. Enough so that I would have to correct my steering to stay in my lane. With the Konis and the new springs I feel the bumps, but do not have to do ANY steering correction now, even at higher speeds than before. Not sure how much of that is a result of the shocks themselves or in combination with the springs.... I went with the yellow because I couldn't find Oranges anywhere in stock this summer when I had the $$$.

I am very happy with my Yellows, I was within 0.9 seconds per lap on a very skilled driver in a brand new 911 GT3 on an 82 second course this weekend (not bad for being up on weight, down on power, and costing about $150,000 less). The main issue that I am now having is that I corner hard enough to lift the inside front tire about 2 inches off the ground on almost all corners, but that is more of a soft spring, stiff bar, combined with unibody twist issue (it does this on my street/road course tires, 285mm Bridgestone RE-11s on all four, it is worse on the Hoosiers). I can also attest to the Yellows being very durable, I let a friend drive my first 2014, he rolled it, and three of the four survived.

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.
