I forget - what's the target market for these? Mostly street with a little track time or mostly track oriented?

btw it doesn't look like you could possibly design in much more travel than that! <3

I'm also interested in the differences between these and the normal KW V3

Subscribed. I'm very interested in these. On Facebook it was mentioned that they'd cost about the same as the KW V3s.

More aggressive and shifting the range upward some to accommodate firmer rates yet still able to use the softer rates ( still firmer than the standard v3) for street use. so standard will be 400/400 but capable of 600/600 which after testing with 500/500's will be in order for those using slicks, Hoosiers, or running time attack. As well we can do custom rates offset for your needs ( 400/450 etc)

They look great too, i know function > form but still am surprised at why so many coilovers use such strange colors i guess it's a marketing thing.

Several ways to skin a cat. Price point alone is VERY different. These are an offering in the 2k range while the JRZ are over almost 4k.

Monotube versus twintube. The JRZ is basically a race shock for the street and allows you to adjust nitrogen levels internally. The T2 is more of a Clubsport level shock for track day, time attack and autocrossing yet has a strong warranty and can take some serious abuse at the same time.

2 VERY different approaches to damping.

The T2's offer a lifetime warranty and are stainless steel and wont rust. The T2's are a 2 way shock while the RS-1 is a single adjustable. Yet one could run a LOW spring rate and yet raise the gas pressure in the RS-1 and have massive amounts of "platform" for cornering yet SERIOUS comfort for wives/back issues/new borns/nasty NYC-Detroit like roads.

So the bottom line is each of these serves a particular end user.

I love both. Both are major confidence inspiring dampers that wont disappoint.

No, i'm sure they will offer some really awesome forged plates to go with them though for the front

rear you will have to use lower control arms or whiteline camber bushings
