That's right, the crazy popular FM V-Maxx coilovers are now available as an adjustable setup. The V-Maxx XXtreme lets you adjust the shock damping to your preference, while also meeting your daily minimum number of sequential Xs.

Because we know a lot of people like to run these on track, we've specified two different spring sets. You can choose between the Sport package (the same 391/258 lb springs used on the standard V-Maxx, which I like to call the V-Maxx Classic) and the Track Pack with 505/336 lb rates at no extra charge. For those who cannot decide, we will make extra spring sets available so you can have both. They all use a 112 lb secondary spring and use our bumpstops.

The price is $200 more than the non-adjustable V-Maxx, which means that the (deep breath here) FM V-Maxx XXtreme Stage 2 Track Pack for the NB comes with adjustable damping, stiff springs and adjustable FM sways for $949.

Due to demand, we're only offering these in an NB fitment for the time being. If you have an NA, you can get our NB conversion kit for an extra $100.

The first production sets are on the same boat as the rest of our V-Maxx shipment. We don't have a solid ETA, but they're on the way and I'm expecting them within a month. We figured we'd release the news early in case anyone wanted to change their order.

This is awesome.

Is there anyway you could provide data on their stroke front and rear?

Any dyno graphs? I'd love to see the range the adjustments can change.

Is the track Pack actually valved differently than the standard sport, or is the external adjuster just cranked to stiff to handle the heavier spring?

$800 really isn't that bad when you consider the cost of tokicos and FM springs new. Now that these V-Maxx coils are dampening adjustable, they're in a different league than the tokicos

I think they're "still at the same affordable price". $200 more for adjustability, not so bad - definitely a good deal for a quality adjustable coilover. Of course, the non-adjustable V-Maxx are still available for the same price as before. So that's a definite "yes".

I don't have dyno graphs available at this time, sorry. The stroke is the same as the non-adjustable units - 116mm front and 110mm rear. Both setups have the same shocks, we're only changing the springs. So you'll need to run a stiffer setting with the Track Pack springs. This also means that you could pick up both sets of springs and change back and forth if you were really motivated.

I'll be the first to ask for dyno graphs, since everyone will ask for them later.

(Can I read them properly? No. Do I want to see pretty curves? Yes.)

If the area code for part of California is distracting to you, then I can quote other prices :) Such as $795, which is the price of the NB XXtremes without sway bars.

I'll have more information on how many times they go click tomorrow. It's not a specification that stuck in my mind. 20-ish.

Really, that's just the number of detents on the knob. It's a measure of granularity, that's all. Not a critical measurement.

It doesn't take that long to dial in, as you don't need to try every setting. You just need to say "too soft" and go stiffer, or say "too stiff" and go softer. If you start with big changes, you'll zero in on the right setting pretty fast. And we'll send these out with some recommendations.

Brandon just checked, he says 18 clicks on the prototype.
