This is more of a poll/light discussion on what everyone is using for a true coilover. It seems the Maximum Motorsport/Bilstein setup is probably most common on competitive cars I've seen. I'm personally using the MM/Koni SA setup with pretty good results. I've been wanting to switch over to MCS coilovers from Vorshlag for a couple years now but I'm not ready to swallow the price tag yet. Brett won CAM-T at Nationals on Cortex. I've also seen Viking and Strange used in autocross/road race setups.

So, whatcha got?

I’m actually using the MMCO-1 kit and MM RA3 struts (2nd generation) that came off Brett’s car when he upgraded to the JRi’s! We are very proud to have the HANO logo on Modzilla and can’t wait for its return to competition.

If you know Brett, tell him HANO by FANO!
He’ll know who sent you!

Would agree with the MCS suggestion, though you might get by with single or double adjustable -- they are pricey, but state of the art! When I was selling Vipers we were actually taking off the KW shocks off the ACR-X race cars and substituting them with an MCS suspension and finding even more benefits. Plenty of good choices, though, but your funds will come into play in determining your final choice.

I ran dual adjustable MCS shocks on my Boss 302S and was super pleased. My fabricator who was a Penske devotee was blown away by them, dyno'd them was even more impressed.
 
I ran Maximum Motorsports on Koni SAs years ago on my 2001 Bullitt. That car is gone but we have another new edge in the drive way still with Koni SAs but using traditional springs. I was very happy with the MM/Koni setup.

This is what I've been running for the last few years. I'd like to upgrade to the next tier with some more adjustability and more spring rate than the Koni's can handle.
