Black Art Design with Russain Guy / Dennis top mounts
PS I do has a pair !
I've gone 2/1 ratio giving me a slightly softer damper which I can ramp up with 32 adjustment settings ...
Nothing more than Russain Guy had really apart from Dennis had 3/1 .
I'm doing Combe which is bumpy more & Prescott where you need softer springs for hill climb .
Basically I've got a softer damper at the 1 setting ...
I've really not got any smooth Tracks around me to ramp the setting up & Black Art Design chap who's driven Combe said 2/1 it's bloody bumpy upto most circuits ..
loving these mate. Now, I have a question... I have the Spax RSX coilovers and I genuinely like them and the performed great at brandshatch and Prescot hill but on the road even with the dampers turned down soft a fair bit they can be a bit crashy. Would different springs alleviate this or will they always be a little crashy by virtue of being coilovers? And how would I find out if there is a spring that fits that might better suit the damper? The dampers have the original spring they come with but I've no idea what poundage they are.

Fair enough. Was worth an ask. They work well for what I want ultimately would have been if I could alter the spring rate for a slightly nicer road ride but hey ho. Cheers for the response. Smile

Well its the damping in regard to the spring so a different spring rate might well work better.
Just ring them and ask, or it might well be written on the spring as part of the part code - tends be on most

Crashy could also be a mismatch between front and rear, depends what its doing and the size of the bump it 'crashes' on. And the tyre/wheel type and pressure.

I'm using slightly softer springs in my KW v2s as I didn't like the originals on the road, but they worked better on track. Think they are 280lb which is what I had in the ASTs on my original Rallye versus rear 21mm bars. Because of the difficulty in changing the rear koni damping rate they are set on high which is a bit interesting when pushing on as Ash found out on a bumpy road a week ago. On track though they are ok if not a bit soft all round - Snetterton was smooth so they felt a bit soft but they work at Combe which is bumpy as hell.

Welshpug & AdamB know more about this Aaron than me but here's how I see it .....
The red main spring at the top is like 650lb say for argument Sake & the dark green spring at the bottom is 160lb say ?
This gives them a soft progressive type action being so long together ....the green softer one takes the bumps smooth until it's compressed to the point where it's at max & then the red 650Ib ones needed ....so it gives me the all round shock for what I want but for smooth tracks I'm going to hard /dial the setting up ...

Ollie £1400 plus vat for the pair .....£1000 more plus vat if you want 3ways fitted & ive copied Russain Guy & taken his advice & had blank take offs fitted so if I was stupid enough to want to go 3way I could upgrade at a later date Thumbs up

Hmmm... see for on track they were brilliant. The car felt pretty well balanced and showed up nigh on everything there on that day. I think the issue is I use it a lot in country lanes which obviously are not th smoothest roads. My old more traditional PSX kit was fine on them but the RSX are a bit harsh. I may give spax a call/email and see what they recommend. Cheers fo the help lads. Sorry for the little thread hijack Damien. Your cars looking awesome by the way. Wink

I think what Black Art have done for Russain Guy /Dennis is try & create a great all round front Damper & cover all bases ...these shocks are so say better ride on bumpy roads than Bilstein B8s which is hard to believe with a Coil over & then when you go on the track be it bumpy or smooth you have a Proper hard core Coil-over that you still have suspension on not just lose your fillings ...

Cheap Coil overs have bad Road work & bumpy tracks problems ...great on smooth tracks though but then you don't need suspension as much ....

It appears that's why great Rally suspension costs so much....it needs to work & stop you bouncing off !

Look I know I could get better suspension just for Combe but then what about Prescott hill climb ....when you need soft suspension ?
My front B8s with Eibachs were unreal at Pugfest & couldn't imagine better ...but I go to Combe more & I really do feel these will cover everything well ...or I bloody hope they do for how much they cost LOL

I guess it's not going forward of the bulkhead? Not a bad thing if it doesn't.

Mine uses the strong part of the bulkhead as the cross brace under the dash and I've been meaning to put in gussets on the door bars
