Default Opinions on KW V3 Settings for the street/Track

For those who have KW variant 3's on your C2's Which settings are using for compression and rebound for both street and track?

For the street settings- start at full soft for both. Turn the compression setting up once click at a time until the car feels harsh- then back off one.

Then start moving up the rebound until it feels right and not floaty.

I have mine set waaaaaay soft for the winter.

As to track. That's going to vary track to track. And relative to your suspension and tires etc...So I'll let the local guys in your area that know your tracks chime in...

^ Great advice. Iĺll just add to start by twisting up the compression and rebound to about 80% full stiff for the track. That should be a good starting point before fine-tuning for your particular combination of ride height, sway bars, alignment, tire sizes/brand, driving style, etc.

This is a very late reply, but I'll post JIC it's useful to someone...

My street settings are 11/9 rear and 10/8 front. First number is the setting for the top of shock and second number is bottom of shock.
