I have the DRM coilovers with custom valved Bilstein shocks and love the setup. I pull 1.08 Gs using Michelin PS tires on a 2003 427 C5R Z06...Using Toyo Proxies I should be good for over 2.0 Gs with this suspension according to Rippie...

Wow!

I would think you'd have to mod your oiling system too in order for it to keep doing it's job while pulling those kind of G's.

The coliovers were $2,350 installed which is not a bad price for well-made coilovers.

I have pulled 1.08 on street tires - that;s enough pull for me at this point...

Hey Brian-

Sounds like you are stepping up again! I need to get modding I guess.....

I rode some laps at Road America with Lou Gigliotti and in a car with his coilover kit, and I thought the car was on rails.

Here is what a Z can do with Bilsteins and Hotchkis bars, and race tires...this was at MAM.
