KW V3 settings Track and Fast Road


What settings are you all running on KW V3 for track and fast road? Tried the basic factory settings of 6 bump 9 rebound and it found it way too soft even on road with pretty noticeable float at speed.

Tried stiffening up +2 for both and definitely better but still not quite where I'd like them to be. Currently testing 5 bump and 5 rebound from full stiff front and rear and it's given me the go kart like handling I was looking for but it's a tad too stiff now over rough roads. Seem like there's no great middle ground with these maybe I should have just went for the DDC kit!

Any input would be appreciated.

What is your ride height? That will also impact your results. If the car is too low, you could be hitting bump stop on fast rough roads. I hate saying this, but you could raise the car up 10-15mm and see if the ride changes at all with your existing suspension settings.

DDC would be even worse for you. You are going from a large range of adjustment on the standard v3 to DDC, which is only 3 predetermined settings. And I don't think you get to choose which 3 settings for comfort/sport/sport+ but maybe I'm wrong.
