Since the lengths, weight etc is no secret you will get high performing shocks some anyone willing to truly design them and not only adapt something from the shelf.
My single adjustable setup (KH Motorsport using improved TTX parts) works wonders compared to many others but it's now sold for $3+k (sans tax). You gotta pay for someones time.

But which of the well designed offerings is the fastest for you? Get one of each setup and compare yourself.
Even if there were a spec series with open shock/springs you would not be able to judge from the outside since there are too many other variables. The tool holding the wrench plays a bigger role than the wrench itself.

We are installing a set of doubles on John's car today. Testing at Oregon Raceway Park this weekend for his car and mine.

A quick video of me chasing my friend George around Oregon Raceway Park clockwise. He was in his evo IX on Ohlins doubles, Dunlop z2s, bolt ons, and tune, puts down around 330 wheel or so.

Laz went under 2 minutes with Eddie Nakato driving. IIRC Martin managed a 2 flat towards the end. I had a 2:01.7 mid-day, later I managed a 2:02.1 with my student in the car.

Our cars are pretty evenly matched, it was good times chasing each other. My 600lb penalty compared to Laz hurts

I finished the day with a 1:59.8 with me driving. Eddie took the car to a 1:59.2 with me riding passenger. Car has more left in it but my exhaust was leaking more and more as the day progressed and eventually the whole rear of the muffler flew off, car felt super down on power by the end of the day.

I was right around there when we went in 2012 (1:59.x CW). Rover at ~125whp on NT-01s. You were on SM6 takeoffs?

Yeah, I was on SM6 takeoffs, I know for a fact the car has 1-2 seconds in it at least in the current configuration. The big limiting factor at this point is the flacid 235K chassis. I dont have the means to cage the car yet so we are going to do some door bars for it.

As far as the exhaust I think the new packing is working, we just need to actually weld it together instead of using rivets. Car was losing power throughout the day as the exhaust leaked more and more.

Ideally the car will have the VVT motor in before then but I'd like to get it below 1:30 around PIR on the 1.6 before then.

Not making excuses just pointing out where improvements can be made. Lord knows my driving isn't perfect.

I'm starting to very seriously consider a set of single adjustable MCS for my NC.
