I think you're chasing up the wrong tree.

As far as s2ki vendors go, I have to say Urge design is one of my favorite vendors. They are a relatively small company because they deal specifically with s2000s and actually perform R&d on their products but they are always extremely fast to reply, extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. I will be testing the urge DFV vs kwV3 suspension, the stoptech rear BBK vs OEM rear brake setup vs urge rear flow rotor BBK and the berk exhaust vs urge scavenger exhaust with a complete and detailed write up when the next track season arrives in approximately 4-5 months (give me some time to write up the specifics once the data has been acquired). Stay tuned for the results (this will include lap times, dyno charts, heat differentials etc.)

I don't post much but be on the lookout in a few months when these writeups will be published with the help of Urge Designs

What spring rate are you running?
I'm running the Upgraded rates.

My thought on the helper is right now when the car sits the ground it's sitting at about 3/4 inch compression of the shock. Since the spring is taught on the shock that means once the car rolls more then that amount it's going to lift the inside tire with no resistance since the shock will be at full extension. I'm thinking use the helper spring to put the shock further into it's compression travel when sitting static. It will reduce overall travel and thats the downside.
How's the ride on the street with the upgraded spring rates? Did you go 12/10 or 13/11? I drive my S on the street a lot and drive to and from the track. Just wondering how rough the ride will be going 12/10 or 13/11 on the DFVs for daily driving duties.
Thanks.

I'm curious too, looks like I may have to send mine in for service so it'd be the perfect time to upgrade the springs.
