I did.... it has a lot of good info but no reviews. I'm looking more for people's experiences. I will probably get the Powertrix SSs, unless I can find the money for Ohlins R&Ts.

I have the PowerTrix UL's with swift springs and like them thus far. I only have 6k KM's on them and nothing to compare to however. Just received my rear extenders, will provide me with the ability to adjust damper settings from the trunk... just need to install.

I haven't played with dampers yet, too inconvenient. Currently set to neutral (8/8) but I intend to dial them in this spring.

Bump up the fronts by four to six clicks or lower your rears as much.

It'll be easy to just bump the fronts up. More weight over the front due to engine so it needs a bit more damping. That'll keep the jounce at bay. What spring rates did you go with?

I have 13K Front, 11K rear. I have bumped the fronts up for the ride home tonight.

Do you find the car any twitchier with the 13k/11k rates? Any hobby-horse like behavior over bumps?

I did the suspension and wheels at the same time... car handles really well but as APE mentioned a stiffer front setting should help it. I didn't get in enough seat time post install last year to get a grasp of it, but have made a couple longer runs this spring. The steering is direct and smooth, not twitchy at all.

What I have found it that the car really grabs the center-line rumble strip when I go to pass, most likely attributed to the wider tires... have others experienced this?

Wider + stickier tires do increase tramlining.

I'll try to start uploading photos here soon and replace all the bad image links. Photobucket d*cked everyone over.
