assimilation...

to a certain extent

ready for the track day next week. KW v3, spacers along with Eisenmann sport with midpipes...

and a scratch on my bumper from some lady backing into me at a parking lot already after only 2000 miles. Guess I might have to settle for a carbon fiber diffuser after swearing not to do any cosmetic mods.

Great call on the 90mm tips. What amount of drop did you dial in with the KWs? They look perfect.

What is your impression of ride after losing EDC? I have heard phenomenal stuff about KW quality.

Beautiful car. Congrats!

about 1" up front and 3/4" on the back. The ride is actually pretty good. Less "bounciness" and not much rebound. I do have an issue with the perch rattling and will probably have to bring it back early next week.

The drop looks perfect alone with the spacer.

Time for a local meet soon?

Please forgive my ignorance but is the KW both lowering springs and "manually" adjustable shocks? What spacers did you go with? Also, are the Eisenmann Sport 90mm tips adjustable with respect to how far the protrude out the rear?

IMO your car has the perfect stance. Very sharp looking setup!

yes. Both compression (14 way) and rebound (they say infinitely) adjustable. There's minor adjustments but it also dictated by the hangers. Spacers are macht snell's but I am thinking of switching the fronts to 10mm since it slight affecting turn-in although it is dialing out some understeer (my guess). Will know more when I get it on Thunderhill next week.
