The ohlins is a higher end damper than the v2 so the performance will be better. Itís is also very very light. Corrosion resistance is also very good

Do you know if my Turner Top mounts will fit Ohlins R&T?

The Ohlins are twice the price of v2’s. personally I’d be looking at Intrax or maybe Nitron if I was thinking of spending £2000and something on coilovers.

However,I’m sure I read somewhere recently that the Ohlins R&T coilovers aren’t even made by Ohlins in Sweden or wherever they’re based, but subcontracted out to a Chinese or Japanese company. The post I saw (could have been on here, another forum or FaceAche or Instagram, I cannot find now. Got a funny feeling it might of had some thing to do with Martin of MS Motorsports off here, although I could be imagining it. Either way, he would be the man to ask about it.

Itís fair point but either if the coilovers you mention are no good for road use. Yes they work and work well on the road, but they are track dampers, so have no gaiters, dust seals etc etc. Plus they need more regulars rebuilds. If you were running intrax on the road I would say you would need to rebuild yearly. I get 2 seasons at the ring from my intrax
