KW Clubsport 2-way settings?

Hey All,

I'm heading down to Spa and the Ring next month and have the KW clubsport set up on my car. I've been to the Ring a few times and it can be very bumpy in places so would need decent compression and rebound.

My track wheels are 265/35/18 square on cups and was wondering what rebound and compression settings would you guys recommend for both circuits? I'm on the two way clubsports by the way.

The car has full interior as it's my daily, but I think it's got a good geo and I have the stoptech ST60 up front so hopefully I can get the suspension dialled in to really enjoy the few days.

Hopefully Lukester or Devotec can provide some of their knowledge

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I've got the Apex ec-7 type 3, in size 18x9.5 all round running cups.

The car is running some quite aggressive camber but so far with my road wheels (19x9 front and 19x10.5 BBS CH-R) and i'm getting no crazy tyre wear.

Anyone able to give some suggestions on the compression and rebound settings for the Ring?

I set the car yesterday to:

Rebound: 5F/5R
Compression: 2F/3R

I think this might be too much for a bumpy track like the ring, but alternatively good for Spa.

I think compression might need to be dialled a bit softer when I get to the Ring, maybe 4F/5R?

I liked running relatively soft, like 6 comp F/R and 7-9 R/ 5-7 F rebound, but a lot of it is driving style related. It doesn't take long to adjust, you guys should just try various settings and go with what feels best for your driving style. Keep comp the same and bump rebound down or up 2 clicks or so at a time.

Sorry posted the wrong way around:

Rebound set to 2F/3R

Compression set to 5F/5R

I've asked KW as well and awaiting as response as they tested this suspension on the Ring.

Thanks,

Ok, so after an amazing trip to Spa, followed by 2.5 days at the ring I achieved my PB on the BTG

I was running quite hard settings on the Ring so after input from Raeder Motorsport, I backed off the rebound at the rear so I was running:

Rebound: 4F 7R
Bump: 4F 5R

with this I set an 8:09 BTG

I have a video on my Go-pro which I will provide a link for once it has uploaded.
