A little bit about me,.......I'm the forum member that purchased these for testing purposes only (near the beginning of this thread) & actually had them tested.

RRT (Road Race Technologys) in VA put them through a very extensive round of both Spring & Strut/Shock computerized testing. The end result was complete failure. They then sat down with me & showed me all of the raceland deficiencies, the end result was this: They thought they would be unsafe on a street driven BMW.

So when I talk about raceland, I'm Not talking from the stand point of assumption.

Like I said do your homework
Raceland makes the standard coilover that's red and there Ultimos are green which go lower
What irritates me about all this,this is the same f##king argument over and over again
Most people put racelands on there car to go low as possible and there car will never see a track or a parking lot with speed bumps and if your buying racelands to race at the track with,your an idiot
They have no valve adjustability just height
I guess I need to go bash everybody with KWs because they don't go low enough
But I have a life

RaceLand Coilover Review

I've been on Racelands for about a year now and the ware n tear is pretty good.. They squeek a lot and bounce a bit more now than when I put them on in the beginning but overall, can't complain, especially for a daily driver!

I did,............that's why I had them tested.


Like I said, I'm glad you enjoy them; But I wouldn't even put them on my lawnmower.

I'm not interested in tracking my car, I don't race, or be stupid driving fast.
I just drive to University and other places, it may seem like i'm trying to justify buying them, but I've read many people have them many miles.

So back to my question, where can i get a low priced set?
