Wooha... looks like you have a big scar now where the kidney and maybe the lungs have been.

I didn´t know Öhlins is Carozzeria or did I read it wrong on the sheet on the left?

Japanese market Ohlins are not built in Sweden they are built by Carrozzeria Japan under licence from Ohlins.

The workmanship on those is second to none. That is pure porn:D
46 mm piston!! Straight out of WRC:thumbsup:

Who is setting these up for you?

I am setting them up for the road for now. My Longarce scales arrive tmw and they should be helpful in getting the corner weights down.
I am working together with a local shop and also Muchida of Going Japan in terms of ride height and damping settings.
He is setting up another set of Flag-Rs for my R33 which is intended for the track.

I bet you can drastically change the cars behavior with that set.
Were any changes to the chassis neccessary or do they bolt on directly?

I'll be very interested to know how they feel on the street as I'm considering going for something with a little more adjustability.

Congratulations on a great purchase! :) Those shocks are very similar to the ones I bought for my BNR34. The difference is that those are even more expensive than mine. :eek: :) The differencies are rather small between the models and I decided when I bought mine that the Flag-R weren´t worth the extra money.

£2500 will definetely NOT be enough to get you those shocks from Japan to the UK including customs and VAT. They cost £2600 in Japan... I´d guess the price would be at least £3800. :eek: The biggest problem when I bought mine was that the shipping company wouldn´t touch them when they were filled with gas so they had to empty them and then I had to go to Ohlins in Sweden to get them filled up again.

I´m VERY interested in where you actually bought them since I didn´t get the English Mounting instructions with my set??

I looked at the Longacre scales aswell but just couldn´t justify the cost of them so I just used a measuring tape and it went very well. I checked the settings on a set of scales later and I was almost spot-on. :)

Yes, they bolt on without modifications. And Dino, if you ask me, these are overkill unless you do a LOT of trackdays every year. The "External reservoir"-type I bought will make you VERY satisfied, you´ll get both better comfort when you want that and racinghard setting when you want that. :smokin: All for less money. :)

If anybody´s interested, there´s pics of my set on the forum somewhere. :)

And if you have any questions, just ask. I couldn´t be happier with my set. :D

BTW, here´s a link to the Japanese Carrozzeria-page for Flag-R:
