awesome, same concept used in many other kits (Roberuta for example).

I wish they'd make this mainstream. I wonder if this kit works for all KW coils.

I think that system is great. I was wondering if any other manufacturers would ever come out with a system like that.

I doubt it works with other KW coils, my KW V3's does not have a tank on the sides of the tube. They never made this for the G37 when there was some feeler threads....

Whats the price tag on these?? The 911 has something similar but not so agressive.
-If it is 5K I would not bother however I am in the market for a coilover system but I am looking a kw v3's or hks hipermax lll's, if this is light weight and only like 1.5k more I will consider. But without any reviews or more info is seems gemiky.

The system MSRP is quite expensive, if not, more than the roberuta cup. The current "cheapest" solution would be the VRH system custom made by Umbrella Auto Designs. Downside is the wait time and you'd have to send them your coilovers for custom fabrication

And thats a negitive G-Rider. There is a reason everyone does not have these on there ride. Feture over implimentation is not always good, take Microsoft Windows for example.

Huh? How's this related to my previous post?

I agree that not everyone needs this. But the concept is pretty awesome and beneficial.
