    Track Setup

    I am about to take the plunge and put a track suspension in my E36. Thoughts on Ground Control (not advance design) vs. TC Kline vs. Turner Group N?? I drive the car to the track and around town once a week or so. I am leaning toward the Ground Control parts. Thanks

    I went with the Ground Control Set up. Although on the pricey side, it works extremely well and has thus far proved reliable. I use it on my ITS car in conjunction with various other components and alignment specs. Where are you located?

    I am in Northern Virginia. Are you using the GC with the Konis or the Advance Design shocks?

    I use the Koni's. The Advance Design are good, but not advised unless you do your own shock rebuilding and often. Being on the East Coast, kinda far from GC, I'd do the Koni's for sure.

    I have heard Grp N are STIFF

    and you may hate them on strt. You cannot go wrong w/ GC for adjustability and dual srt/trk useage.

    I can't give you comparisons, I have GC setup

    on my E36 M3 and I don't see how it could get much better. GC is certainly top notch. Their service is excellent, too.<img src="http://members.roadfly.com/cosmosm3/TheBeach.jpg">

    From personal experience with many different set ups . .

    for your use TC Kline! The set up is much better, the qualit far exceeds GC and TC's DA Koni's are simply awesome.

    Unlike GC , TC Kline's staff is also much more helpful when it comes to set up and adjustments.

    Re: Track Setup

    If you were to track the car, then I would strongly advise you to get the Bilstein GrpN. 600 and 300 front springs and separate rear 750 springs. I bought a set from Chuck Stickley (CSS Motorsports) for an e36 racecar I built two years ago. In fact, they were sold by Turner, but rebound was revalved by Chuch. I like using threaded bodies instead of sleeve-over.
