Anyone else have any updates they'd like to share?

I'm very interested in pursuing something custom/different than the Koni 861X route and the robustness of the Bilsteins has me intrigued....

I built a set for a friend's B13 Sentra. Working very well so far.

Im trying to get a friend to pick up an s13 for rallycrossing and ice racing. Anyone ever build a set of these for such a car?

Contact JVAB in Seattle and get these.

They are the best bang for the buck and made to be indestructible. He has them custom valved to your setup and can get Bilstien goodies from the old country that the USA office won't deal with.

I did a RallyX down in the Oregon gravel pit and did a tarmac drift day with a set of these dampers installed on a fully sorted stage rally Murker X4Ti. They are awesome, can bomb through anything, and did well on tarmac as well (got to be patient for the weight to transfer with all that extra travel!)

Might be overkill for ice racing. A Koni twin tube in S13 OEM sized housings might be better for low traction surfaces vs the higher hysteresis of a gas mono-tube. Hell, bone stock suspension works perfectly on snow/ice.

Car build threads (stage rally S13 - Started out on 3KGT Bilstein inserts in OEM housings which didn't work well and were destroyed the first season, then upgraded to the JVAB kit):

Look through the JVAB web site galleries for his other fab work.

This is how he builds Bilstein Struts (doesn't use the kit in the original post and does it at a lower cost with much stronger and more serviceable housings. Costs for a full set of 4 dampers are usually around the $2400 range IIRC.

50mm vs 40mm
