I think the Konis can be used in a wider range of setups than the DRM's. The adjust ability allows for changes for varying course designs, concrete vs asphalt and different car setups. They may be...

Having a 2004 Z06 I would say the Bilstein Sports without the DRM valving are significantly better than the stock z06 shocks. The ride is much stiffer and the car is planted like on rails. The...

Some miscellaneous thoughts:

If you don't really, really understand what changing settings does to the car then it can be more of a hamper than a bonus.I put myself in that category after doing this for almost a decade. I now...

I think you need to decide whether or not you want/need adjust-ability. Then go from there.

I have the same questions, I know lots of autocrossers using the DRM and C4 bilsteins re valved by Bilstein for autocross. I am sure the Konis would be better for National caliber drivers, but for...

DRM may be more popular for the road course guys since they may run the same course over and over. Local autocross always has different courses so the ability to "tighten" or "loosen" each end of the...

Stock diameter ratio is 25.6 / 26.7 or a difference of 1.1". You're right about being closer to the stock diameter ratio, but is that really the ULTIMATE factor???

RE71R - 285/30/18 is 24.8 and...

If you're not opposed to running different brands, run the 71R's on the front with the 335 Rivals on the back. That worked better then the 275 Rivals and would still allow you to run the wider rears....

I have not on the C6GS, but did on the rear of BS C5FRC and honestly donít think contact patch is much different on a 9.5Ē wheel though as the 285 is squeezed.

Iíve tried both the Rival S and RE71r in the sizes you list. I do prefer the RE71r for better feel and steering response. But high heat is better for the Rival S. They need some heat in them to...
