NC KONI RACE COILOVERS!

Post by Brian »

A project percolating along on the back burner just might see the light of day before this year is over. Back in the day our friends at KONI did a motorsports Koni Race valving setup for the NC for GrandAm Racing. They sent us a set of fixed length shortened body KONI RACE shocks with that valving for the first round of testing and we LOVED IT. We loved it because it rode amazing and yet it handled race sharp. But we wanted it in a height adjustable shock body in addition to the magic damping and the adjustable damping feature of the first test set sent to us. Prototype of this second stage of development is on the way for testing.

Please don't ask me what it will cost because we don't yet have any idea on costs or eta, still just paying with potential new item here but it has evolved far enough to get me excited to show you the prototypes. Posting in this thread because thinking we might use the supercharged project car to track and autocross test this setup. Otherwise might put it in my latest 2.5 project and use that for SCCA XS-B.

I was really hoping to see something related to this setup at Koni's SEMA booth. The free stickers sorta made up for it, ha!

Until more info is out on the product launch
for dates/prices, can you tease us with some development pics; wheel droop on an NC? :wink:
I'll be interested as an early tester next year

Had our friends from Grassroots MotorSports Magazine drive and photoshoot the project NC that is featuring the new KONI setup. Picked a favorite canyon road for fun charging up and own the curves. Development takes time, production takes time. My hope is new setup on shelf by late Spring.

Our Maverick was photo chase vehicle today.
