Thanks for the thoughts though, looking forward to seeing the ZCP suspension in action this March.
I've got an 08 EDC and have never driven a ZCP so can't compare.

But I understood the ZCP springs to be 12mm lower but NOT have a stiffer spring rate. Also, the dampers themselves are NOT any stiffer but ARE progressive in Sport mode, while non-ZCP like mine is linear, and progressive only in Normal and Comfort.

Generally speaking, there will always be a setup that is better than what one is driving now. I say, learn to drive well from good instructors, move up in the run-groups, and drive the snot out of whatever setup you got. OP, enjoy the ZCP for good while, should be fun!
