Yea, depending on the weight. We're going to do a couple things to lighten the front. Not sure if it will be enough though, so you are probably right.

^ to answer some of the earlier comments

For Ohlins we often do custom valved / sprung kits for customers specs. That's why we deceloped all of these little add on parts... they were a means to and end to allow us to make totally custom Ohlins kits. Every intended use case is differernt and the requirements for a street car and track car (and everything inbetween) necissitates different roll stiffness and valving. Everything is a compromise and if we do our job correctly we can help miminize the amount of compromises someone would have to make for a particular scenario. For instance a stiff spring rate is relatively harsh over small surface irregularities that you wouldn't see on track really, so a compromise would be to reduce compression damping slightly from optimal to reduce the harshness without sacrificing roll stiffness from the higher rate springs. There's lots that go into the custom kits... but if you have an application you're trying to tune for we can help hit those requirements. We'recurrently helping a rally s2000 driver (weird right?) that's looking for an ultra-long stroke setup with low spring rates... we're pretty excited about this setup as it's pushing some of the boundries we've got as far as physical requirements for components... it's an interesting project. STR Autocross ND is also on the list this week.

anyone interested in a potential custom long stroke setup? Pricing would be around the $3K range. We've done quite a few for the NC, ND, S2000, NSX, etc.
