better question is this better than the "TRACK PACK" since they offer the same type of options and adjustability

and if spring rates and valving could be customized to your need, the major thing to "wonder" about it is overall build quality and reliabilty

i am ready for new suspension, and as far as price this looks to be promising

With hundreds of customers who have bought from us, only one has ever returned their set of BC's. That should tell you something about quality and reliability.

pretty much every coilover system from greddy, stance, apex, etc. are made by BC. BC can thus give a product that is pretty much the same if not better than the more expensive brands for less because it cuts out the middle man. The subi and evo guys love them and so do the 350z and g35 guys. Pete from BC has a very successful twin turbo G35 that is time attack driven by Scott Bush from Relentless Autosports.

BC's surprise everyone in terms of quality and performance, so if you're looking for a cost efficient coilover system, they are the ones you want.

I think I'm sold... I wasn't planning on doing suspension anything, but this seems to be a good value.

sweet...from all i've read and from what i've heard from others this sounds like a very good offering, especially since you can choose your spring rates and have them valved accordingly...the 8/10k sound good to me, maybe even the 10/12k if they wouldn't be to miserable on the street

I was just about to pull trigger on Nitrons since they have been on sale for quite some time . From what I have read sound pretty good , considering diferent spring rates and valving at no additional cost . Somebody is selling track pack for $900 with 15000 miles . If I can get brand new set of coil overs for couple hunded bucks more . sounds good .
If you could also post weight of them .
I guess you can post or PM me with details for payment .

Dannggitt! These look promising. Now I got to do some suspension research.

Here's a link to the Subi board and their opinion on BC coilovers...bc racing coilovers - Page 16 - NASIOC

To the 350Z board...BC Racing BR series coilovers for 03+ 350Z + G35 Intro Special - Page 6 - MY350Z.COM Forums

On your website, you state that if there's a problem with the shocks "they" will take care of it. I guess "they" are BC... So I take it that you will be out of the loop for valving, service, setup, and spring rate changes? I'm not harping, just questioning who the point of contact is after the purchase... you or BC? If BC, where is BC (besides in Taiwan) and what kind of turn around time and phone service do they have? In otherwords, how available are "they"???...

Thanks,

Phil

Any further 'user' reviews on this product? Also what's the piston size? Need to pick up some coilovers soon. Was looking at Nitron one ways then came across this thread.

Check some of the Subaru forums -- do a search and you'll get quite a bit of info on these coil overs.

I would not even think about putting these on a Lotus. They are junk.

Anyone from the "import" scene knows that they are cheaply made and most people purchase them because of the price and to just lower their cars to the ground.

If I see shocks advertised in the Taiwanese Option Magazines at the boba teahouses around Socal, I generally stay away.

I currently have them on my ride,if you do ever track your car,stay away from this coil over,they are a piece of ****!only good for the street.bc Taiwan dun make any spring rate higher than 8kg for the lotus application.

From my other post you could see that I am looking for spring as those spec were give by bc to source on my own.

In short they support most Japanese make,they have variable spring rate to support but not for lotus,unless this us reseller have their own source of spring for our application.

If I can't get any better spring I will have to look over to nitrons or ohlins.

Comment is base on my personal experience,ultimately you guy have to decide if it's worth it
