New Moton dampers

Just posted this on 1Addicts. Didn't find previous posts about the kit here either.



Bimmerworld just put up a listing for a new Moton kit. It is not yet available.

Looks cool. Single adjustable, but same internals/pistons as their motorsport dampers. Not sure if the price includes springs....

$2900 is dirt cheap for motons. must be a new low-end product line for them.

If I could afford them I'd be glad to give a review.

I don't think I'd spend that kind of money on a kit that didn't offer the M3 rear camber arm as an option. I think that the rear lower shock mounts on the 335 camber arm are too flexible to get all the benefits of a high-end kit like this.

I haven't seen anyone on this particular forum that is qualified to actually give a review on shocks and struts, myself included. Sorry.

Besides the usual "I put on XXX coil-overs and my car handles tite now, yo!" and the "YYY shocks are teh bomz and you MUST get it" I doubt you'll get qualified answers when comparing über high-end dampers. The top end stuff like Ohlin/JRZ/Moton etc cost more because their customizable internal valving to provide different damper characteristics at high and low speed shock movement and stronger internals designed to tackle the rigors of PROFESSIONAL RACING and most offer life-time re-build service which comes in very handy since most racers, even club level ones, would likely need to rebuild their shocks/struts on a very regular basis.

And $2,900 is DIRT CHEAP for Moton. I mean this is AST price levels which is a good strata below, and AST is already the TOP consumer level dampers.

Getting someone here to review these Motons would be akin to me reviewing my Playboy Photographer buddy's camera equipment. Sure, I'm probably more knowledgeable than 99.99% of the populace when it comes to camera stuff (besides my freelance career in writing, evaluating automotive aftermarket parts, I am also a freelance motorsports photographer), but the cameras that my friend uses? Light-years out of my league. LIGHT-YEARS. I wouldn't even know where to begin.
