That info is not correct re Taiwanese components for V3's which are actually made totally in-house, V3's are based on the tech from the racing application and can be serviced and rebuilt just the same but in some areas they are stronger (incl bump stops) enabling the struts/dampers to deal with pot holes etc you may encounter on roads, as for the DDC, my opinion and experience it works very well, but If my 1M was used frequently and mainly as a track tool like my OPC then clubsports would be my choice, but with the clubsports matched with progressive competition springs I wouldn't even consider using my OPC as a frequent use road car other than driving to and from track as I do, it is harsh on the road, so you need to rule up where you are looking to gain and where you are willing to loose ..... plus with 3 ways you really want to know what you are doing when it comes to chassie adjustment if you are looking to frequently change the settings.
