  1. Back from ... life; what shocks for track?

    FFR Type 65 Coupe
    It's been a few years, with spurts here and there working on my coupe. But I think life is settled down enough I will be working somewhat steadily. A lot of little things now, and tying things together... You know, 80% done. And 80% to go! A few years ago I had a stock 5.0 (still in the...
  2. What to do with your shocks/Injector, brake, u-joint questions

    Ask Gordon!
    Good day Gordon. I'm a happy owner of a set of your Koni shocks on my Coupe built primarily for track events. I have 11,000 miles and 4 or 5 years of 8 or so track events a year. At the start of each season and along the way I look hard at all the bits to make sure things are all good. I...
  3. For Sale: Bilstein Coilovers

    Parts For Sale / Wanted

No mention of how long this will take. I sure dont want the roadster setting on jack stands for a couple months before I...
  5. Koni shocks acting different upside down

    Factory Five GTM Forum
    I have been recently looking into upgrading to some better dampers considering the recent threads on chassis tuning and spending a little time wrenching with the PDG gang on the race GTM. Being of scientific nature I delved into experimentation mode and did some backyard testing. I climbed up...
  6. Anyone running IRS/FFR Konis/SAI/15" non-pindrive?

    Brake and Suspension Tech
    I know the SAI mod is intended for 17" wheels, but I love the classic look of the 15" wheels on these cars. I have looked through the forums and see that some have done the SAI mod with 15" pin-drives, but was wondering if anyone had the 15" non-pindrive set up this way. Just to re-cap, here...
