Their job is simple. They are meant to provide a decent ride, marginal handling improvements, and the ability to slam your car....all for a low price. They do this well. If I tracked my car, I wouldn't use VMAXX. If you're on a budget but you want to lower your daily driver, I don't think there's any beating vmaxx's. Who cares how your car handles at 9/10's if it's just used to go 45mph on public roads....

While KW's are decent coilovers I personally wouldn't use them for heavy duty track use because KWs are twin-tube in design. Twin-tube coilvers heat up much quicker than monotube coilovers, and as a result the damping becoms very inconsistent. This is why KW v3 and up coilovers have reservoirs, to keep the temperatures of the shock down. Monotube's don't really need the external reservoirs, as the whole shock body acts as a heat sink. However it still helps to some degree when you're out there on the track constantly.
