Default Kw clubsports

This is a bit of a long shot, but do you know how well the valving in these would be for a street car (using the softer springs)? I've had a v3 setup in the past but no experience with these and this isn't a track car. Anything you might be able to share would be appreciated and also help me make a decision.

thanks,
jason

Thatís a hard thing to comment on because when it comes to modifying suspension for the street it is just so damn subjective. These are a capable track parts, and are like 4xstiffer than stock. If you liked the Varient 3s then I suspect you will like the Clubsports as well. I believe They are designed for street/track mixed use. They have side-canisters for a bit more gas volume, and should react more predictably. You can use the stock springs, relax the compression damping to like 1/4, and set rebound damping closer to mid. I donít think anyone would say the car is too soft, but it will let you ride lower and the car will drive very nicely. If itís not tolerable I guess you wouldnít take a depreciation if you resold them, as Iím already doing that! You could also pick up softer springs either from KW directly, or swift, or eibach. They are standard diameter springs. You could go down 100# on each corner and still be matched well with the dampers, just like I did, but in the other direction.

hope that helps. If you can find someone else that has done this that might be good info. You can also call a shop that sells these, or write KW to get options on your application as well.
