Made a visit to a place in Bradford yesterday..... I found a set of V6 TTX36 Ohlins gathering dust on the shelf.
So have taken them to MGR for a good looking at! They have the Mecatronic stsyen fitted to them .
( For those that dont know what that is, Its an electronic control system for the damper adjsuters that allows damper adjustment on the fly, Either to preset positions or one click at a time)
If Russ can work his magic they will be to 2Eleven spec and the advise from Russ was to run 600/800 springs.
He advised against going 'Too low' on ride height and suggested circa 105/110 (Exactly what i was planning). The discussion i had with him all made sense to me, So will go with what he tells me.
Looking forward to getting them back.........
Also found my Aim colour TFT dash at the back of the cupboard, That will be utilised as well...............

I spent last night in the Lotus position......
Free advise, If you need an electronic throttle pedal fitting, Pay some one else to do it!!
This picture shows the two easy bolts, the third at the front of the pedal CANNOT be reached with a socket of spanner, That was great fun to do!!

That was Russell's recommendations....
90% track use he said 650/850 then after more chat revised to 600/800.
I ran 550/700 on the S2 exige and would happily have gone stiffer.
The 800 rear allows for rear areo ( decent rear spoiler 😁😁😁😁)

I'd be interested in the intercooler you've removed if you want to sell it!

Next jobs are the gear lever and cables to install, Also the charge cooler rads, pipe and pumps, Then its front clam etc etc
I still need the rear clam painting but am still undecided what to do with rear lights, rear panel cutout or not etc etc
So i will concentrate on everything forward of the rear bulk head for now.....
