KW ClubSports installed, i.e. how low can you go…

Kinda rhetorical question because the ride height and camber settings (3F&2R) have been tried on the track and I could not wipe that grin off my face… (Bump and rebound were left at the out-of-the-box factory settings.)

I’ve acquired the AP Racing brakes and the KWs through ESS Tuning and IND –Distribution respectively. Those guys had been extremely helpful during the sourcing process, so a big thank you to them. And a big thank you to BigLare for hooking me up with those guys.

Couple of reference pics below.

1. decide the approximate ride height based on what is practical... I know you drive on the street on the weekend.
2. corner balance the car, which means further adjustments based on corner weights.

The KWs seem to handle street driving much better than the Ground Control coilover conversion did. At this ride height with the GC kit the rear was jumping all over almost everywhere in town or on the freeway. As it's been said on this forum before, matching springs and dampers, matching springs and dampers...

Yes, that still needs to happen.
