    Hello just wondering what KG springs people are running on track ?

    Im currently running HSD coilovers with the 9kg front and 6kg rear but the rear end seems solid , there's more movement in the tires than there are the shocks ? running hard race RTA bushes , DC2 ARB and some aftermarket squeaky lower control arms ?

    Also for the geometry set-up last time I took my EK they asked me what setting (camber , toe) I wanted just wondering what you guys are running camber and toe in/out wise ?

    I'm running 10kg/6kg. vti rear ARB, skunk2 lcas and new OEM RTA's.
    -3 degrees camber on front,

    -1.5 camber on rear

    can't remember the toe settings, so i know its not overly helpful haha.

    The settings are intending for R888 / AO48s though. don't know how they would hold up day to day on road rubber.

    My Settings on my EG6 are:

    Front camber: -2.50 Degrees

    Front Toe: 0.00 Degrees

    Caster: +1.60 Degrees

    Rear Camber: -2.15 Degrees

    Rear Toe: +0.20 Degrees out

    Front spring rates 12kg,

    5mm preload

    24 clicks from full hard

    Rear spring rates 8kg

    5mm preload

    14 clicks from full hard

    Rear ARB on full stiff

    10mm of rake

    ITR 96spec ARBS all round with adjustable rosejoint droplinks

    Car handled so beautifully when pushed with this setup, shall be having the same put back on in a few weeks when its in for GEO. Been through a fair amount of springs rates over the years mind

    Front camber -3.5deg 18kg springs (just changed from 14kg so will see the effect next time on track)

    Rear camber -2deg 10kg springs

    Front toe out 24 minutes combined

    rear toe in 4 minutes combined

    ITR front and rear roll bars.

    so very very hard, and ideally suited to dry days of course!!

    How did you manage to Gain that Caster ? have you swapped upper control arms ?

    I have the Spc/ Eibach front arms so caster and camber are adjustable. As said Whiteline do a washer kit for the lowerarm.

    i had 3 degrees caster last year, hoping for more this yeah but that just uses the traction bar tie rods.

    10 kg front, 14kg rear, +1.5camber front, +0.5 rear, 0 toe all round, 225/45/16 toyo r888's


    Car's a bit of a handful on the road, but if it's smooth or on track then it's really well balanced and turns in exactly how I want it to.

    You notice much difference running that much castor ? On our double wishbone suspension it should in theory make sod all difference.
