Hey Guys, I need some advice. Im not planning on tracking my car, I only use it on weekends for spirited drives and some fast highway comutes (350 km each way).

Im now run fbo stage 2 and want to improve the suspensión . (not neecsarily lower the car only improve the grip and steering feel)

I got the oportunity to get some used KW v3 with camber plates, do you think this set up is ok or ist it overkill. I dont want the ride to be too stiff as roads here in mexico are pretty bad.


thanks for the advice

Hi Diego,

KW V3 are good for street/road use, you can go softer or harder with the clicks, depends on your feeling with the car.

Don't go too far with the negative camber if you do not track, you will ruin the interior side of the tires quickly.
I think -1,5° to -2° all around is good and well balanced.....

I've got the KW DDC wich are the electronic version of KW V3

You know you should be able to get -2 even without camber plates, that was the case with my 1M when I had it.

If you don't want the increase in NVH, then the stock mounts are just fine.

Thanks flor the advice! I decided to get the ohlins rt without camber plates as ok not going to track it very much and don't want to have to change tires too quickly.
