Depends what you want I have also driven cars with both and for comfort ohlins DFV every time. The Nitron with 3 way adjustable damping will come into its own on track and to maximise their performance all the rest of the suspension arms etc should be Uprated. That said the DFV is no slouch on track sure it's not a dedicated track setup but still does a very good job. Hence its other name road and track.

I did come close to buying Nitron myself but in the end the Ohlins worked out well for me.

They are really nice on my 34

So I went that way

The 32 will see more action in Japan via Miguel than in the uk

It's a garage queen lol

I agree about buying quality. And I have commended you in the cheap and cheerful brake kit thread

Either kits you can't go wrong Ohlins are world renowned as one of the best in the business. Nitron are one of the top UK brands.

We re-sprung Ohlins DFV for endurance racing Hondas and shaved at least a second off lap times on street tyres.
They're generally a road & track mix - a good compromise, but not the best.

What's nice with Nitron is the coilovers are made for a specific driving in mind, so the result just works better. The last I drove with Nitrons was a Mine's 2.8 R34 V-Spec II on the Izu Skyline, whilst the owner (who used to frequent these parts) borrowed my AE86 for giggles.

The Hipo is also vastly capable, naturally.

If you're going to do something like this, do it right.

no idea really. maybe 500ps.

its not a power build.

i suspect the car maybe used 2 or 3 times a year so not exactly going to be fully on boost on a daily basis.

Nitrons should be in the UK next week, so they can be fitted in August.

should also mention the car has Greddy oil cooler, new garage defend cooling panel and a few other things added, which i missed off the spec list.

Not as nice quality though. ***55357;***56397;

Spec list looks really nice though. Looking forward to some pictures and how you get on with the injectors.

i will be using R35 set up from midori, which includes the fuel rail (midori) injectors, reg from nismo etc, i think its about £2.5k all in, not sure

should be ok.

not really fussed about using r35 Brakes, id want new discs/pads etc, and when im doing front and rear thats competitive for F/R set up for about £4k

TBH i think the build in parts is near on £30k now, ,maybe 40k plus the car,

etc

i am sure that midori will do a really nice job

ive many other things going on with the 34 or other projects so when its finished its done
