George at KW sent out an email telling a little bit about KW’s suspension development for the R35 GT-R. KW Germany made a micro site that breaks down some of their development including some cross comparison testing of stock suspensions vs. KW V3’s and KW Motorsport 3way, photos, track layouts and online movies. Check out the movies at Hockenheim and Nurburgring. The Rammstein style German headbanger music they rock in the videos is cool.
Since KW set XS up with some triple adjustable motorsport coilovers for the BNR32 Time Attack car, I have started to use more KW suspension. On the XS car, the super broad range of damping adjustment sold me the first time out (we just need more track time!). I setup several BMW 335s and EVOs (friends cars) with the KW Variant 3s and I thought they were excellent for both street and track. Anyhow, I think its great that companies like KW are spending serious time (and money) developing products for the R35 GT-R.
These are the actual KW Clubsport coilovers for the R35 GT-R.
