I've seen a number of pics on the internet with the RSR kit fitted, ....From all reports, it's quite a 'streetable' setup; I just haven't read which spring-rates people are using, but I'll be asking for their advice when I buy the kit. I suspect with either the softest or second-softest springs, it'll be 'firm' but still grip ok (not be skittish across bumps) and retain decent comfort.
I rate my 155, with H&R front coilovers/rear spring-damper setup, as 'firm' and crashy, but still very livable for me. I recently drove my mate's 147GTA for a couple days, fitted with Bilstein B14 coilovers, and that was even firmer, but had much better chassis control so felt more composed overall; it was livable, but I'd become fatigued of that firmness on a regular basis. Either way, these are bench marks for me in terms of ride hardness.
If you want to save yourselves a lot of time cruising the internet and forums, speak to someone like Alex Jupe, buy the RSR kit and be amazed.
I run a 155 as a daily driver and my weekend Alfetta GTV6 is totally transformed by the RSR kit.
Alex Jupe spent a lot of time (and my money
) setting it up properly, end result is that the car is totally street-comfortable (and far more comfortable) than a 155 even with eibachs etc but with the RSR
You can literally throw the GTV6 into any corner and it is virtually flat, totally maintaining composure, even better than an early chrome Alfasud sprint - best upgrade I have on any of my Alfas which include Alfasud Sprint, GTV5, 155 and 105 GT junior. It is no way crashy, over firm or uncomfortable which is what I was particularly concerned about- watch footage of any Alfetta racing and you will notice the considerable body roll - mostly eliminated with RSR.
PS The GTV6 steering is now also a lot lighter but Alex says that is due to the geometry being tweaked/optimised.
BUT speak to Alex first, he will tell you what works and more importantly, what doesn't.
his new number is 01243 575 760.
