with lowering the wheels go to the inside a bit, how about spacers to correct the offset with the fenders ?

Bump Front 6 klicks open Rear 9 klicks open

My setup (sporty for all day):

Bump Front 7 klicks open Rear 7 klicks open
Bump Front 9 klicks open Rear 12 klicks open

It was coner balanced. The overall wight without driver but fully fueled is 1487kg

Axel / left / right / axel weight
front / 368kg / 394kg / 762kg
rear / 368kg / 357kg / 725kg
sum / 736kg / 751kg / 1487kg
I had mine installed today. Got a perfect 50% diagonal weight distribution (only 1kg difference)
I started with your settings but these are too soft for me (at least when driving on the Ring).
I am back to this, but need some further fine tuning.

Rebound Front 6 klicks open Rear 12 klicks open

How exactly soft is a camel ???

well said by the way...
I had no idea a camel ride is soft! I agree, well stated.
