      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...

      Exactly, so I will take my fat pig of an R and slam it on it's nuts and enjoy it for what it is....

      hell yea... this is what this guy posted in a forum about camber

      "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."
      Did your parents beat you as a child ?

      Looks awesome Jonathan! Ever since I saw your car I have wanted some sort of DBP wheel accents. I just can't believe how sweet it looks on certain wheels!

      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.


      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....
      and now a pic of my car just for him...

      I did a quick search for some info about user Super 180s and this is what came up....weird...but you can't argue with the internet so this must be true.

      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

      Some sick ass R32's here!

      This is why I don't bother with the R32 forum any more.

      Then why did you make all of the following posts?
      Quote, originally posted by Super 180s &raquo;
      Sick stances? WTF are you, 16 years old? The R32 is a performance oriented car.

      Quote, originally posted by Super 180s &raquo;
      I rue the day R32s depreciated into the hands of people with teenage minds.

      With some of these comments I think your the one with a teenage mind.

      But...what?! You just said it's a performance car. Why shouldn't it be on a track?

      But...what?! You just said it's a big, fat, heave, slow, understeering pig.
      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.
