: Coilovers?? need advice.
Hope you guys can help with this. I am looking for a coilover setup for my p10. No biggy you would say, enough choices avalible. True, but i'm in the netherlands and getting that stuff from the states is pretty expensive. I wanted to go with ground control but i don't like the sleeve idea, plus i would need shorter shocks too. This brings the price up again. I found a company here in holland that makes a coilover set for the p10. The company is called intrax. Don't know if it is the same as the other intrax brands. Anyway, here are the specs and a pic.
* Spring-preload fully adjustable.
# Other features; Mono-tube damper construction.
# Internal pressurised nitrogen reservoir.
# Options: Can be combined with fully adjustable camber-plates.
# Can be combined with 40mm and 46mm main piston diameters.
# Can be combined with 14mm and 22mm piston rod diameters.
# Choice off plated steel or INOX* (maintenance-free stainless steel) (2006)
# Different piston designs for adoption of performance.
It also has a hydraulic bumpstop instead of the normal bumpstop to prevent botteming out. Here is a link (http://www.intraxracing.nl) to their website (english also). Tell me what you guys think.

if its really meant for your p10 then id say it looks good to me, spend and do it all at once. If your going to spend that kind of amount, spend it wisely i should say, you dont want no regrets at the end, true? and no sleepless nights
Luppo: Prijzen ? Ook verkrijgbaar voor P11 en P11-144 ? Contactadressen ?
I can tell you one thing: Intrax has a good reputation and the combo's that are on the USA-market are not much better/different in many aspects.
Personally I would go for Intrax or Koni yellow/Eibach.
Yahnozha has a thread right now about Koni (yellow). Interesting...
Hee Loek, dit is een echt nederlands bedrijfje die deze in eigen ontwikkeling hebben en fabriceren. Ik denk dat ze los staan van intrax usa enz. kijk maar eens op de website. www.intraxracing.nl .
I told Loek this is a dutch company that has its own R&D department. Prices are € 1115 for the p10. They also have them for the p11 and p12 platform. I'm not sure about the p11-144 but i can ask if you want. I'm interested in the hydraulic bumpstop instead of normal bumpstop. They say it works progressive up to 4x the force to prevent botteming
out. Sounds interesting.

I guess its gonna depend on budget....since your in Koniland, Id say get the Yellows on all 4 corners and some coilovers...sleeving shocks/struts really isnt that hard.
Those do look ultra trick tho, I just cant justify spending $1900 USD on a setup, unless its a dedicated race car...even then, Id be hard pressed.
Weird thing is koni doesn't carry the yellows here. Only koni red for the front :baffled: . That is what is told to me some time ago.
Build quality doesn't look too great to me, but hard to say without better pics...

I was told the same thing...but if you call around, im sure you can find someone that will get you the yellows for the front, ive had to call numerous places to finally find one that will get them for me.
8040-1127sport is the part number...for fronts
PS: the koni thread is in the sponsor section...finding lots of info about it there...could be a good time to become a sponsor ;)
I'm working on that ;) . I'll see if i can work something out with the koni part number.
Luppo: contact EFKA imports in Zandvoort: they can get you the Yellow Konis. I asked them some time ago and there was no problem. I tried other addresses before without any luck: Koni Red was available, Koni Yellow not. Then I asked Koni themselves and they gave me the address of EFKA; I e-mailed EFKA and they said they could have 'm within days. Unfortunately I'm too far away at the moment.....
As for the Intrax: the correct website should be this one, I think:
The one you gave me does not work well, I don't know why....
I sent them an e-mail asking for pricing/availablity of the P11 kit, which does exist. Then I'll make up my mind.
A far as Koni Yellow concerns:
8040-1127 Sport (Voorzijde/ Front ) P11 + P10
8040-1225 Sport (Achterzijde/Rear) P11 only (Euroversion)
P10 achterzijde/rear: check the thread of Yahnozha for options.
