Is anyone using KW coilovers

Hey there everyone,

I was curious if anyone here is using KW coilovers on their build?

What are your thoughts on them if so? We just brought them into our product line and are still trying to work out where they are going to fit best.

Thanks for your input.

Just a note on the KW's - there are significant internal differences between the V1's and V3's and then again to the clubsports. Also the spring diameters are around 2.4 inches and that is not a standard size for replacements springs. I had V3's on my old TT and they are great for street and occasional track use - but are not really meant for hardcore track use. At that point you are looking at Clubsports and then at that price range there are other good alternatives.

One of my instructors Don Morris has the KW Clubsports on his 2000 S track car but it is a dedicated track only car that he trailers to events. He really likes them.
