Default Urge/Ohlins TTX36 Initial Thoughts...

From the start I knew I should be looking at suspension to be more successful on the track. When I finally took the plunge late in 2014, the result was not surprising. It was trans-formative. Although I haven’t had much track time to fine tune, with the help of Patrick (and some dumb luck?) the initial results have exceeded my expectations.

’08 CR
Ohlins TTX/12k, 10k/all the bits and pieces/double adj. /Lowered about 1”
Hoosier 235/620x17 on CE28x9’s
Carbotech pads-10’s and 8’s
Adj front sway at 566#
-3 camber /0 toe; -3 camber/1/16 total toe in-rear

Installation was straightforward. After having the car corner balanced and aligned, I found it negotiated crappy Ohio roads much more comfortably than stock. Starting the adjusters both mid range, at Mid Ohio, lap times were reduced 4% out of the box and the car was very steerable with the throttle. Before an electrical issue at Daytona, I saw 144 in practice and the car was completely controllable in the tri-oval. Not using all the travel, yet, so looking to soften the settings this spring. Shoulda done this a long time ago. Still one of, if not the biggest bang for the buck…with a big tip of the hat to Patrick at Urge who is always incredibly responsive, responsible, and interested.

I'm jelly. The TTX have a level of low-speed control and low stiction that the DFV can't seem to match.

Surprised you're still on those Carbotech 10/8's on slicks!

4% reduction in lap times!!! HUGE.

That is a lot of value. Only a Supercharger or Stroker short block at around the same cost can reduce lap times by 4%.

What were your times at mid-ohio after tossing on the shocks and what power mods do you have?
