You should look up actual track grade coilovers. All the Nitron stuff is around $5000 for a good set. JZR has kits in the $14,000 - $18,000 range.
True but lets be honest. Most will buy the "cheaper" stuff and be 100% fine with it. Which the "cheaper" stuff is by no means bad, just not as "good."

Agreed. I actually had to convince a dude the other day that he should buy the 500s and not the 510s because he only occasionally did track days. These are for people chasing tenths.

I appreciate the kind jester of driver mod LoL, but I’ve had well over 15 days on this track.. in this car previously and was looking for tenths. Car was on the same tire, powertrain, and brake setup as previous year.. only changes were roughly 64 lbs less ( if not less because I had a full tank, we’re last year the car was scaled with a 1/8), the 510’s, camber bolts and motor mounts and we picked up over 6 seconds!! Was able to carry 8mph more in some corners.

The people on here, yes, even most with very track capable rides but who still drive them on the street, are NOT going to like those rear lower damper spherical bearing mounts at all, given how they HATE any NVH. [:(]

Yes, those bearings will make everything much more 'precise' (or as precise as one can be with a beam rear axle anyway) on a glass smooth track, but they will knock like rabid jackhammers on any road surface not as perfect as said tracks.
This will happen even if they use the very highest grade, Delrin lined, race quality, spherical bearings.
Surprisingly Enough with my car fully gutted I don’t notice much noise from these when it has been on the street, but in all fairness I have solid motormounts and a extremely solid chassis so there is a ton of NVH, so I could be missing that lol they are very stiff on the street ( could turn dampers down but it doesn’t bother me enough to do so for the small about it sees the street!)

Suspension and balance is absolutely the best mod for reducing laptimes, no doubt about it. That level of reduction is extremely impressive.

Do you know if the rear adjustment extenders work with the Fiesta? I had rear Konis before, and was hoping adjustments would be easier.

Just go with Meister R Gt1's and be done. A little more expensive, but it's a coilover designed for track use, and well worth it.

I'm sure these are great, but I just found out that I can get a set of the Fiesta R2T tarmac spec M-Sport Reigers (3 way adjustable, remote reservoir, front and rear), yes used, but freshly rebuilt, for ~$2500.00 or so. [driving]

And yeah, before you say it, I will, they are not necessarily the ideal for open tracking. [wink]
