Thanks Gum, but if they are US doubtless they will get cained for VAT, tax and parcelforce fees when they arrive :shake:

Could do with them this week as well so I can get the car back on the road for the B.H. weekend :)

Yes he does and that may well be my next port of call, but at the moment I was just looking at replacement discs and AP's don't nececerilly get the best write ups on here. I don't have much idea what is available and at what price.

If you need some urgently then your best or only option may be to just get a new set of standard discs from mitsi for now and upgrade next time when there is a bit more choice.Im pretty sure Mitsi can get parts next day.;)

I had DBAs 2 piece discs on my Z, superb discs, stopping wise, but the anodised bells faded (red to pink) really quickly and the bolts rusted, I wouldn't go there again :(

I think the standard brakes are very good with a decent set of pads,unless like Sider you do a lot of trackdays they are more than upto the job.
Think my next upgrade will be a set of coilovers,especially if it turns out that my struts are goosed!!:wallbang:

If i thought they make a big difference, BC would be my budget I couldnt justify spending 2K+ on suspension. Mind you i spent nearly that on wheels, but at least I can see those :lol:

Maybe its getting good people who know the kit to set them up properly which would make the difference.

A set up is a set up, if the angles etc are the same there wont be much difference who does it I suppose, but each brand of coilover will be different as to how it is valved etc which governs it's performance. (The prices that were mentioned the other day for the Exe-tc were fitted and set up prices)

I got ****ed one night and made the wife pregnant :smthumbdo with our first child due in November :smthumbup so I'm trying to get as much done now coz meternity pay runs out after 4 months and she wants to take a year off.

Or so she thinks, got mods to pay for :lol:

What about the level of firmness altered by notches/clicks? i suppose you would need to know the right number of clicks for road use then adjust for track.

This is all new to me :confused:

This where you need to try the service that is provided by each manufacturer.
I can only speak on my experience but that firm design their units specifically for the Evo, what I mean is they fit some and test them and adjust etc to suit. They come with a reccomended set up to start with and you can play with them from there, or speak to the manufacturer (in England) to discuss.

There you go you see, once you are happy with your ride height (which I think is easy) with mine you just lift the bonnet or open the boot :smthumbup

I'm learning all the time

So take wheels off to adjust ride height and firmness is adjusted from the top via boot or bonnet. I see :smthumbup

Ride height yes, but the position of the damping adjustment depends on the make ;)

Doesn't say directly says -

BR coilovers feature 30 way damping adjustment that combines both rebound and compression in one adjuster for simplicity and ease of use. This adjustable facility allows you to fine tune the vehicle to meet the relevant conditions.

looks like there is a black "nob" on the top looks like a dial

Yep, the position of that "black knob" is what you want. But it does also say "* some features are dependent on model" so check first. I know tangodeltasierra3 has fitted them to his VIII, may be worth asking him :smthumbup

Touch wood,it seems fine upto now,but I never launch the car,always get her rolling first then have some fun!!:D
There are a few on here who went for the BC kits and have raved about the ride and build quality for the money.I couldnt justify spending 2k on a set,but then i dont do any trackdays,i suppose if like Sider I did do a lot of trackdays then a decent suspension set up is a must,and if i was seriously into tracking my car then I would think about spending 2k on such a vital area of the car.;)

I haven't tried the BC's so don't want to slate them, or any others, but, apart from the lack of ride height adjustment, the standard X suspension is very good (IMHO) Even at standard "crop sprayer" ride height it will show earlier models up round a track :smthumbup

i read that one of the tuners had the clutch slipping in 5th at around 420 if i remember so they eased off a little.

The BC Coilovers adjust as so:

BR Series:
Front - Top
Rear - Top

RM (inverted) Series:
Front - Bottom (inverted strut)
Rear - Top

Not sure on the ER but as they are external canister there will probably be adjusters on the top of the damper and on the top of the canister for seperate compression and rebound adjustment.

Cheers,
Stevie

p.s. Dylan, any pics of the wheels on the car matey?

I have the BR's adjustable via the top.

Nice ride height and very easy to adjust - fitted them after a few hundred miles so can't remember stock very well but I run them most of the time on 3 clicks from softest (comfy) as its my daily ride. The firm up very well LOADS of adjustment.

recommended - great value for money imho. Should be so much better than lowering springs.

Mine slipped on A.I.s dyno at 398 bhp @ 5000 miles, about 1500 miles after a tune, never launched or tracked :( Cusco twin feels so much better, so glad I chose it...now I'm kinda over the bill.............:cry::o [email protected] is unbeatable in my experience for twins :)
