Got any pics of this beast? Sounds pretty awesome. How's that single turbo kit? Looks like an insane setup.

Is this the one from Bahrain/Dubai?

Geo settings - he meant geometry like camber/toe etc.

I'm not quite sure what you want either. If you want stability under power you want close to zero or slightly toe in at the rear. Zero toe for the front. Maybe -1 camber at the rear and whatever camber at the front due to ride height unless you have camber tops. Street driving/no track don't do past about -1.5 camber on the front if you do have cambe tops.

Here is my settings which I am very happy with. I do not do any driving on the track but spirited driving the the mountains on winding roads.

Front rebound - 5 clicks from full hard* Rear rebound - 7 clicks from full hard
Front Compression - 8 clicks from full hard Rear Compression - 9 clicks from full

Each to their own but i would recommend a different geo set up with that amount of power.

A fair bit of toe at the rear, Zero toe at the front with slightly more caster, -2 camber at the front and -2 at the rear.

I went for KW'S recommended Nurburgring settings for the road Then softened the rear rebound a few clicks to allow the rear to dig in when all the torque is unleashed..

Get some Pirelli Trofeo R tyres in OEM sizes and you'l have yourself a 1M with some degree of road manners.- Although with that amount of power i suspect it will still be a handful..

Looking forward to pic's and vids when you get time OP.

Cheers Jamie
