Ideal ride hight for the track

Post by RX8-Mischief » Sat Feb 25, 2017 5:12 pm

Hi Guys,

Does anyone have any experience on suspension setup on a *track only* RX8?

I'm in the process of installing my new suspension hardware in my track car and the out of the box setting for the BC coilovers is, well.. substantially different from stock.. see below..

Looking to leverage anyones experience for a track only setup.

Cheers

Its going to depend on the suspension itself. There should be recommended heights from the manufacturer. It took me a long time to get mine where I was happy and that was starting from recommended height. Best thing to do is set them to recommended height and get the car corner weighted with you in drivers seat with half a tank of fuel.
