Look forward to feedback.
Although if it keeps raining like it has, settling them in before geometry and corner weighting may take several years.

Yes looking forward to the feed back. Planning to upgrade mine soon. I am not exactly a Track Demon. Just want to improve the handling from the original shocks. The car isn't too bad at the moment, but it can be quite nervous on a bumpy roads and high speed. As many would share the same view that don't deny the Nitrons are good, but a bit too steep. Just don't justify for the best for my 99% usage and not making the most of it that is all.

Have to agree, from the photo they look excellent Matti. I was going to upgrade mine with the 12k service at str8six in a couple of weeks however I'm inclined to see how you get on with your route first. Having them set up by the supplier puts the onus on them to get it spot on, with their experience no reason to assume they won't. Cheers Andrew

My kits been supplied with 400lb front and 350lb rear... Derecks given initial setup details which i'll use for 50 miles or so to settle them then get the geometry and corner weighting done.

Done about 100 miles and the shocks have settled and ride height re-adjusted. Theyre not harsh and seem to ride well apart from feeling a slightly springy.
The geometry and corner weighting is going to be done by bubble and kick.

Mind you they couldnt be any worse than what was on the car....

Springy sounds like you require to click up a tad on the damping.
