Ok so I raised my lude up from having no gap in the front/1 finger in the rear to 1 1/2 finger gap in the front and 2 finger gap in rear...only because i was tired of scraping left and right...
anyways....

i went to go tear up my local twisties and it definitely feels weird not to mention i slid the front wheels(pushing like a dump truck) and felt the rear end get real light like she was about to come around....

my settings are on 8 all around from break-in which is done....my twisties are bumpy....

what are your recommendations for settings???

what would be better??? stiffer or softer???

and when would you use stiff setting vs. soft setting?

That is probably due the fact that you are running less camber...

For most people, when the car is pushing it is due to overdriving the car (slowly down)... The rear feeling like it is going to come around is what most of use are looking for when racing...

I'll let people with experience w/ Tein's comment on this. Generally, you run a soft setting on the street and a stiffer setting while racing. Personally, I run the same setup all the time. I just don't push the car on the street like I do while racing.

Yea i wanna know the same but with HA's. What is your track setting and street setting when crusing around town? I got it 8 clicks all around. Its a lil too bumpy but not bad. I tolerate it.

On these Tein HAs, for street settings, I use 12 clicks from full stiff in front and 10 in the rear. It's very tolerable. At the auto-x's, I'm still experimenting but I'm usually 2 clicks from full stiff in front and full stiff in the rear.
