Hey Earl,Hi Scott, have you driven an R8 with stock vs ohlins ttx on the road? If yes, can you give a bit of insight into the differences beyond the ability to form up the ride on the mag shocks. Also, I visited your website and didn't see any specs or pricing for R8's. Do you have a set up that you recommend? Thanks, Earl
I am sorry you didn't find the R8 stuff. It is here: http://www.ahlmanperformance.com/products#Audi-R8-TTX. I have to get the pricing up there. It is $4790 for the coilover set and $510 for the magnetic ride delete if it is needed.
I have not driven it back to back yet, but will be in the next few weeks and give you feedback right away. Ohlins developed the kit for the Gen1 R8 V8, but didn't feel it was right for the V10 so we will be doing the V10 package adjustments. I am modeling the V8 and V10 now to get a big jump on it. And we can adjust these packages specific to your needs like we have for the FGT. So if you do mostly street and the track once in a great while we can set that up for springs and damper settings. 95% of our customers run a package they can lower the car, rides as well and handles better than stock even though it is 25% stiffer in springing and corresponding damping than stock. The setup is a little stiffer than stock to lower the car since we have to control the suspension in a smaller travel range and you don't want to crash into the bumpstops all of the time.
