Fortune auto is also testing their coilovers for our cars right now. So I'm guessing sometime this year they will finally be released.

The only thing they have listed for 6th gens currently is their V3 which is only single adjustable so I don't think that's worth the trouble. They just released a V5 kit for C8, that's is ideally what I would want since they are 4-way adjustable but I'm not going to hold my breath. Gonna poke around at some of the shops up at the Ring soon and see if anyone has a good contact at KW.
The KW Clubsport or KW Motorsport would be a more viable option than the V4 or V5. The V4 and V5 are still considered their 'street' coilover.

Does anyone know what the spring rates are on the ZLE?

My old notes say ~457 lb front, ~1200 lb rear. It maths out to approximately 2.1Hz front and rear.

Where did those rates come from? Those seem in line with what I would think, just wondering if you / someone had them tested or what. Thanks.

I've collected a lot of info over the past few years, I don't recall where this info came from, but I wouldn't have kept it if I had reason to doubt it. Having driven 1300 lb rears against the FEA rears, I have no reason to doubt the numbers.

I guess, you can decide whether this is worth noting, hehe.

I went from the DSSV to the MCS for the primary purpose of fitting more wheel and tire up front. I'm 18x12 in front now, and there is plenty of room. I'm considering 18x13, once some wider (fast) tires come out. Not for the faint of heart.

The damping on the MCS, as I have them set right now, is very similar to the DSSV. The DSSV have tons of low speed compression, and with 2wnr they feel very similar with the compression turned up.

I primarily autox, so it's tough to create any sort of direct comparison. So far I have been taking top PAX at local events by a bit more than I generally did last year on DSSVs against the same competition. I think any difference in time is primarily attributable to gaining an extra inch of front wheel/tire.

I'll be at the Ridge again later this year, but it's been repaved so my lap times would not be comparable.
Does this allow you to turn things down for a better street ride? I like the performance of the DSSV's on the track but the street driving is terrible. i was thinking that a shock upgrade would fix this for me and get me the best of both worlds. (I have ohlins TTX on my other car with similar spring rates as the camaro and have achieved this).

Yes, with 2w you can turn down compression for a more compliant street ride. The MCS 2wnr is more digressive than I'd prefer. It's definitely more compliant than the DSSV setup out of the box, even with higher spring rates.

That’s been my experience with the mcs non remotes as well. In fact, they required high spring rates to perform well. They’re a nice simple setup though.
