      I have to say that it's pretty awesome that the guy that is more interested in the way his car "stances" has a better understanding of dynamic camber than the "track enthusiast". Well done sir!

      I like to prove I'm not just some dumb little kid sometimes

      What now?

      You want the car to be high on the road, and low on the track. On the road, you have to deal with bumps, ridges, potholes, catseyes, unknown road conditions etc. Suspension travel on the road is your friend. The more you have, the better.

      Anyone who slams their car on the road isn't interested in performance, therefore has no reason to be driving an R32.

      Guy pretty much everyone understands how a suspension should work but to say you dont deserve to drive an R32 is crap...I love my car to death but its a CAR...not every wants to be an effin race car driver haha...this is why i dont post in the R forum lol

      Exactly! You don't drive hard, so you don't need a performance car. A 1.6l MkIV with a bodykit would serve your purposes just as well.

      Ok now I know you're ****ing retarded. GO learn something about suspension geometry.

      The suspension performs best when the front control arms are near parallel to the ground.

      Why would I want my car low on the track with my arms pointed towards the sky?

      I say you're the one with no business driving an .:R. Because if youre slamming your car and going to the track it's handling like dog ****.

      Haha you're so far off the mark.

      You're right, my idea of 'slamming' is dropping the car until the a-arms are just above parallel.

      I don't run my R32 on the track. It is a big, fat, heavy, slow understeering pig that doesn't have any business being on the track.

      Reasonable b-road car though...

      You sir are a moron.

      If that's what you intended why would you even say slam. If you know the height at which the arms are parallel it's FAR from slammed. One might even say 4x4'd.

      As for the second comment, I can't even believe you're that dumb....

      Last time I checked this was a "Stance" thread.... not a "What are the best settings for road vs. track" thread..... Go play in the suspension forums

      This was Super 180's last post in the camber thread in the car lounge- "You can all claim 'it's a personal choice', but I met 90% of these cars are illegal. ****ing tools putting other road users in danger. I hope you all die in a fire." <-----This guy is full of class Whoops just noticed someone already posted that quote....

      Not to throw fuel on the fire but when I lowered my car, I put in adj tie arms to put camber back to stock. Our cars are tested once a year in UK and anything dangerous or not roadworthy such as wrong camber would fail. And my car is still as quick in the twisties as it was stock, if not quicker - I just get bounced about a bit more

      Back on topic. Anyone seen this from KW? Its a new kit which can be retrofitted to coilover kits Coilover handling with bag adjustment for bumps/driveways

      No idea and its only available for ferrari, porsche and lambo at the mo I think. Friend has a contact at VW Racing UK who deal with KW directly and he's trying to find out any other details.

      Just found a company selling the conversion kits in the UK. Its for a Porsche 911 admittedly but to convert KW V coilovers to HLS (hydraulic lift system) is minimum £2,800 or $4,500 The lambo kits were the same.

      They also do complete coilover kits already fitted with this and they run about £5-6,000 or $8-10,000.

      KW have front and rear systems but I'd only really want the fronts. Lets hope the pricing is a bit keener than that for our cars

      You are an IDIOT becuase you think you know all, see all, are all when it comes to how an R32 owner should operate his / her car.
