Coilovers

For any of you road course guys, what coilovers are you using and why?

I've been looking for a good set of coils that are both adjustable (height and compression/rebound) and affordable. I think the best deal I've come across so far are the BC Racing BR Series Coilovers for $995. 30 levels of damping adjustment, full ride height adjustment, under $1,000, and come with cc plates. Anybody have any experience with BC coilovers?

BC is decent, depends on which set up you get though. I run Maximum Motorsport coilovers on my 01. Haven't been to a track yet with them though.

I was thinking probably coils and then a watts link being the two major components for my 2014. Of course I would still have to do control arms and sway bars, but I think the coils and watts link would probably be the biggest difference makers. I've heard that those two together completely transform the feel of the solid axle setup.

The type of coilover you choose is going to depend on your budget. I would make sure that compression and rebound are separately adjustable. How much time do you have on a road course?

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.

I don't have any track time yet as I'm waiting to upgrade to a GT, because when I sell my V6 I don't want a buyer to shy away due to it being "abused."

So no track time yet, and that's why I wanted a more entry-level setup that still allows for some adjustability, i.e., something that's fairly cheap and allows for more than just ride height adjustments.

For 04 and down I usually recommend Maximum Motorsports. That's the set up I have. If I had an 05+ I would be using Griggs
