Had a great day yesterday at Oulton Park, first time out in the car since BOT carried out a complete refresh of all the suspension components including Nitron Bearings and the spitfire brace.

I have to say it's transformed the rear end stability of the car massively and it feels a lot more composed than it ever did on the 60k 18 year old bushes.... There's a surprise!!

Not sure exactly what had the biggest effect but very very happy with it :)

Great vids!

 

How did you find the Nitron Bearings on the road, was it a noticeable difference in vibration etc?

what a superb vid from the E36! He was fully on it and it looked like it was well kitted out.

 

How on earth did he get the rear view to overlay on the top like that? looked really cool

Very little difference but BOT got rid of a few rattles when they put it back together for me so it's hard to tell tbh! I only drive it to the circuit or BOT anyway :)

Its so damn accurate though you would love it. I didn't realise a VX220 could handle so well.

 

My car does have all the stiff bits inserts, Vibra Technics & decat so its not exactly a vibration free experience anyway.
