Default Really low settings on my Xidas Stop No and Don'the or No Don't Stop

So... Just might possibly be retarded but I found my best autocross times today running 3 clicks off soft front and the lowest in the rear onot new NT01s... wear was perfect to the marker point but I didnt have a pyrometer available. On the NT01S - 225s on 9s, I know I'm not competitive so let's forget that argument. Damping though, am I nuts? Texas A&M kids like to have real tight sections mixed in with a course that I am otherwise able to use third gear for much of it with a 6spd and 3.9. Not too floaty over big humps on the freeway on the ride home either so it seems that there is enough damping and the car does not have enough camber, 2f 1.7r, 1/8" toe in rear, 225 whp turbo, RB 1.125 hollow on soft front 11mm rear. Thoughts?

Edit, thread title screw up and anything else I didn't notice because multiple double IPA tonight (not at the autocross)


Edit 2, they're gen 2 with helpers

If it works, it works. On smooth courses, soft is fast. On tracks with more bumps, you may find the car becomes a little more unsettled which would warrant more rebound.

The new Bauer extended LBJs are the easy button for more camber. I'm able to run 3+ degrees of front camber at streetable ride heights.

Just a question Andrew, is this running NB or NA subframe ?

NB subframe. I'm at ~4.25" front, 4.5" rear, and I've got ~2.8* front camber with the adjusters set in the middle of the range.

I'll have to check them out, since that's exactly my ride height.

Went back today and they smoothed out the course; same settings put me under 2s slower than a nationally competitive CP Fox Mustang with Hoosiers poking out for days. He was somewhere in the 45s I got to 46.8 or something. I'm happy.
