That's because you only like NON functional mods ;) Check out Turner Motorsport site, I am too lazy to link.

Because J-Stock is better!

Ohh i Forgot Big Baller!

It's not THAT expensive.

Ive never heard a bad thing regarding KONI/GC Combo.

I have nothing against it... but J-stock is better for ME

P.S. Mike, do you still wanna trade? And where is that link you promised me for a lightweight battery?*wave*

Thank you, supposed to be the best non adjustable set-up out there.
I've been researching suspensions almost since the day I bought the car. And short of MOTON ($6.000.00-$10.000.00) I don't see anything that's better.
At the June school my car leaned so much, my body was almost parallel to the ground (joke). Can't wait to have it installed and driiiiiive *rockout*

How are the springs and shocks alone without all the other components? Although I would love them I can't afford them and I am looking for a new spring shock combo for my e30

Should be pretty good. I've only ridden in cars with the full set-up and it's fantastic.
The shocks are re-valved Bilstein Sports and the springs are (I think) H&R Race, even with just that it should be very good, but if you drive your car on the street, I would get softer springs.

^^ so does that mean that car will be track only? i.e trail the car to and from track?
i've seen the weights for the j-stock - they look scary. Also you will probably want to consider returning that lower pillow on your sparco ;)

The car was always track only. I put on about 2000 street kms on the car since I bought it 3 years ago. 90% of those 2000 kms, is driving to and from the track.
I am in the market for a trailer right now.
My fat ass provides adequate cushioning:) , but you may be right, I may have to take the ass cushion out of storage.

What do you mean?

as in really really really stiff :)
if you still plan to go to and from track in the same car, it will probably be tiring to say the least. Once i rode a shotgun in a miata with a superstiff go-kart like suspension and racing slicks (with stiff sidewall): handling was phenomenal but after about 10min of drive my ass was numb

Oh no, it will be trailered from now on.

Ahhhh Gleb, that suspension looks awesome. Sounds like your E30 is really getting the royal treatment. That thing's gonna handle like it's on rails!
