1M on JRZ RS

Hello I was wondering if anyone was using JRZ RS (2 way adjustable without the remote reservoir)?

These are the dampeners in between the RS1 and RS Pro.

Thoughts on your setup?

I just have them installed. I had the RS 1 way adjustable and wanted something more. The feel is very good. The extra adjustment is lovely on track. You have more adjustability to get a car you want and don t have to install the extra canisters.

JRZ also have 2 option on springs. Softer and Little harder. I have gone for the harder springs front and rear. The ride hide is also adjustable front and rear. And you can use them with camber plates or with original top mounts. I have gone for original top mounts for a little more comfort.

With the harder springs and low bump and rebound setting there is still enough comfort in normal driving.

Next week i am going to the Nurburgring with the new setup.

Advevo,

Will you be attempting to set a low 1M lap time?

Which tires will you use?

Will it be the 1M with cage and are your two 1Ms still with stock engine tune/map? It would be great if you could tell us exactly the set up of your 1M before or after your Ring day by the way.

Stock size PSS are an intentional choice for you I guess? Agility and lightness over anything else including an otherwise perfectly fitting 255/275 combo? (I also have stock size PSS by the way)

I bet you are not a fan of fat tires

No fat tires are for people who want to drive on rails. When i want to travel on rails i take the train.

WRC cars have only 225 wide tires for tarmac.

I take the white one with cage. Engine original only 135i midpipe

Hmmm... for track use, I'm about to switch to 285/30-18s all around.

Also, I'd imagine you could spec whatever spring you want with the dampers. I certainly did so with my JRZ RS1s.

The dampers are fantastic. if you want more from youre shocks the double adjustable is a very nice upgrade.

With the wide rims front it s better to go with a camber plate and smaller race style springs. It gives you more inside space front to run wider tires and rims.

I am very happy with them.

Damn. I am using the staggered apex setup and was hoping I could at least keep the rears and run them square. I will likely be making the same move to the 18x10 next year.

Thanks Neil!
