    my guess is not this week ;) Up side is the car plows real well and the tires work good in the deep :)

    The BC package did comes well packaged and looks very well built nice fit and finish and good instruction.. now if the Weather would just play along .. ;)

    Sorry for the delay. We have our new dyno coming in from dyno jet and it includes an OBDII interface that links to the graph. So much easier to tune with the PIDs overlaid on the curve. Cant wait to try it out. As I mentioned, this car would really do well with 250whp/260wtq. I'm hoping by the end of this year, this will be a simple combo of 4-5 parts and under $2K to get there.

    The BCs are a go. I've been riding on the 5K rear springs for two weeks (up from the 4K rear) and I like them but I think its a little too much rotation for the street. The 6/4K setup is such a great balance.

    Lets get a list going - who is in for a set? I'll update the site and we all can place our orders

    Thanks, Joe. We're still prodding people here. In the meantime, would you mind going back a page or so and addressing the BC questions regarding ride height, etc.?

    The height adjustment level is 2" higher than stock to 2.5" lower than stock (4.5" total). I dont recommend either of those extremes, but its very easy to find your happy medium with these.

    For daily, I run the dampening setting at +5 Rear (from full soft) and +4 Front (from full soft).

    The price ($950) includes free shipping. And you can add extra spring pairs (like a 5K rear, etc) for just $99 a pair.

    Please keep in mind, the car will ride "softer" with the BCs set at the dampening I mentioned above. Softer than stock. The bounciness and stiffness of the stock suspension goes away.

    ALSO: With BCs, the ride height setting is INDEPENDENT of the spring preload. Meaning, you can lengthen and shorten the entire shock body without effecting the shock travel or spring preload (unlike GCs or KWs). This means no matter how low or high you go, the shock will always perform the same.

    That sounds great! When you (your linked site, anyhow) states "valve matched" for the spring rates, what is done? I'm asking about the idea that we start with your suggested 6/4K then decide on significantly different rate springs, later.
     
  17. joe@2j-racing

    joe@2j-racing Active Member

    Each order is custom made - meaning, someone can order 7K/5K (thats +1K front/rear) and the valving for that specific set will be matched with the spring rate chosen. And its set up to run +- 2K, if you decide to go up or down in rates later on.

    Think of it like this, spring releases energy and its the job of the shock to dampen it. High spring rates, poor dampening equal a choppy ride. So the shock valving has to be matched to the spring energy.

    Thank you. You answered my real question as expressed in +/- 2K rate factor tolerance. I understand the basics of suspension theory. :)

    More body roll than stock, the same or less?

    Less body roll. The BC spring rates are HIGHER than stock, but the BCs are valved better than stock. So it feels more composed.
