how is the handling with the KW????
Unbeleivable. But I dont have much else to compare to, otther than stock shocks/struts with rs-r down springs.

I asume the treewsays is good enough for the WTCC, it has to be worth something. Not to mention, its being used by BMS on their Rally Reno.
Hand made in Holland? *snigger*
Is that what the WTCC actually uses? I know they have KW but I doubt its the same model sold.

I asume they sell a more road comfort equipped one to the public. My Swaybars "...arnt as agressive as the ones on the Rally Reno"-Chip
I asume there is a comfort factor in it

Mostly likely but yet again there arent repling to my e-mail...
Man I wished I lived in the US cause everytime I order something from someone for my Optra it always costs me the double due to customs and all.

Guess Kinky was right we should just stick to the KW coilovers because the cobra suspension kits actually cost $1150.67EURO so I think its like $1491.16 US and $1752.88 CAD and I dont think it covers the shipping & handling cost

For what it's worth... the suspension on the WTCC car is NOTHING like the street car. The front is an entirely different geometry and components (the control arm is fabricated, not a stamped sheet piece).


FRONT




REAR



FRONT ENGINE BAY (note the braces and the fabricated tubular control arms, also the steering rack is way way lower and is solidly mounted to the sub-frame)

okay...but where can we get the WTCC suspension?
All of the WTCC seems to sue KW Suspention. Its easaly obtained from BMS. It woant be the race suspention, but its the best consumer set out there. It woant be race due to the road conditions of your adverate street being less then what you find on the track
