Hey guys,

 

I'm in the market for a coil over setup, with many brands to choose from, Vorshlag(MCS TT2). Cortex-JRI, Griggs Vari set up, what do you guys suggest?

Car isn't a DD so no worries on that, open track is my only concern. 

 

I had a great conversation with Jason over at Vorshlag which he explained the "non coil over in the rear" setup which seems interesting versus the rest i mentioned.

 

Any thoughts?

Hi Chriss302:

No doubt Vorschlag is good, but my money on the current competition winning setup is from Cortex Racing. They recently revised and fine tuned their JRI coilover valve rates and they have gotten rave reviews.

Give them a call, you'll find their Customer Service is beyond First Class.

Plus, they have a full competition suspension setup that you can grow into, or install the full suspension setup with the coilover upgrade.

Please keep us posted,

I chatted with Jason @ Vorshlag about the MCS TT2 along with their Whiteline bars, seems like an excellent combo. I recall that Drew over at TMO has these, right? 

I emailed Filip over at Cortex but haven't heard back from them, the price for their JRI-Cortex coil over is fairly high.

 

Now to see what Griggs has to say about their setup.

Drew is a very successful S197 Chassis Boss 302 Owner/Builder/Driver and has won his Race Division more than once. He is very competitive and continuously upgrades his 2012 Mustang Boss 302. Check him out and send him a PM, or look at his build thread, he's a great guy and is always willing to assist Mustang owners.

I've learned that spring rates are very important in a good coilover setup.

Kenny Brown is the other Race suspension supplier that has won many races in the S197 Mustang Chassis. Hi son, Paul Brown, (RIP), won the triple crown Championship in 2011 (Driver/Comstructors/Manufacturer), before SCCA placed restriction on the U-Code engine in a mid 2012 season rules changes. Paul's 2011 race season matched P. Jones 1970 SCCA TransAm Championship winning season.

I currently run a KB rear suspension set up and will change over to the Cortex based Watts Link at some point.

Please keep us posted on your findings/decisions. Lots of choices out there.

Thanks for the info. I've seen several owners with the Cortex Coil over setup and seem to be very happy with them. Most likely i'll give  Drew a shout and see what his input is.

Thanks for the help
