Using the stock rear rubber mounts even the Zl-1 or 1LE negatively effects the dampening of the rear shock. It would be nice if BC racing made a rear monoball shock top mount for their kit to function properly.

Do you know the spring rates for the Clubsports? V3 seems to be just ~5 kg/mm at the fronts (unlisted for the rears), which sounds very low to me for serious track use. Do they fit on 2012+ models?

I've been looking to replace my broken Pfadt with Megan Racing. They are fairly cheap at $1450.00 CAD but no body that I spoke with ever heard of them.

Which model did you buy? Do you track the car (road track)?

I second that as well... the bc racing set ups an entry setup thats price/feature competitive with any brand and the fact that you DO NOT lose suspension travel from height adjustment ensures the degree you lower your car doesnt affect the damper (strutss/shocks)..as all dampers are designed to operate with a certain range of motion.

If you have a need for an external reservoir used in heavy road race etc... the bc racing also has an ER version available

And if anyone hasnt noticed by now... pedders, petty racing and bc racing all come from the same base company...bc racing. Just different colors and exclusivity in pricetag. Same specs and adjustments if you look at different brands and models specs.

I'm leaning towards BC Racing ER coilovers, too. They provide three valving options with these coilovers. I'll definitely go with the track-biased valving, but I'm not yet sure if I should opt with different spring rates.
