    I have Koni adjustables with Tein springs. Made for a nice drop and ride and handling is still good.

    Are Slower than yours.
    Ground Control. IIRC it has Eibach ERS springs (linear rate) Koni double adjustable. I love it

    I'm running KSport but K&N has always been recommended to me as I'm looking into a new set (mine were put on 5 years ago from the previous owner). My setup is hard, so I can't tell you about comfort really because I haven't had time to jack it up and adjust the coils.

    Moton Clubsports.

    There is a huge jump going from something like a low end Koni/Bilstein designed for street use and to last 100,000 miles to a higher end Motion Control or KW designed for dual use.

    Once you go past that into dedicated competition use Penske/Ohlins/Motons/JRZ (where one shock can cost as much as an entire set of lower end shocks) there are substantially diminishing returns, but if you're competing with the car those diminishing returns can yield fractions of seconds, which can be the difference between winning and losing an event.

    I will say this - Moton's customer support is terrible. If I had to do it again I'd go JRZ.

    I use GC S/S. Car sees a fair amount of track regularly.

    Which is best for you is based upon how you use the car, what you want from it and how much you want to spend.
