I was worried they would be to hard but no, Just very good damping control. Considering the springs are the same as my Teins and feel more comfortable and get better the faster you go.

I have a set of Clubsports on my X RS. The intention is to give them a good workout on the track, but still sorting out a few bit and bobs before that can happen.

Having visited the KW factory earlier this year I can testify to both the build quality and the passion that these guys have about suspension.

Well reset rear ride height today so no rubbing 340mm wheel center to edge of wing edge 330mm rear. Will get geometry done some time this week as hard work on the floor so will get 100% on lift. It does fell great though. I have very expensive suspension on my mountain bike and its very good at getting traction and even though the front was washing out today I could fell it and dab the rear brake to slow it to continue through the corner. The same as the car there is a corner that upset the car on the old suspension but takes it no problem faster as well.

Have you got a particular geometry setup in mind?

I think you could easily go more aggressive on the camber - say, -2.5 front and -1.5 rear. And you might want to experiment with a tiny bit of toe out at the front depending on whether or not you like a "pointy" front end. Don't set the car too low and a bit of rake (tilting down at the front) is normally recommended.

Car geometry set on Friday, Ride height 345mm front and back as rear rubbing 343mm as 20mm spacers fitted and Ado8Rs 225x45 - 17. front camber -2.2 and 1.25 rear front caster as much as I could get, front toe 0, rear .5mm out. took it for a spin that evening and f**k me its great, trail braking just nice. turn in fast and pointy and the KW great feed back and feel, I think I will increase the rear rebound 1 click firmer as a little bit off bounce but still getting used to how the car feels but the the settings that come set with from Damper dyno seems there. I have a new Link g4 ecu going in soon and a special Welsh Man coming so will have to ply him with much Guiness to get off this Race fuel as meggia ££££ and fast but not realistic.

Out on interest, why did you opt for toe out at the rear? Are you planning on taking the car out on track?

Probably being pedantic here . The helper springs being at the bottom will add to the unsprung mass of the shocker body when they are compressed by the cars weight. If they are at the top it reduces the unsprung mass

For the 'purists' of course

The place that set the car up said to try it as there tarmac evos run slight toe and find it a good setup. So far seems good. It is to find a good setup with new suspension so playing around.
