where is everyone putting there ride height at? I have 275 springs up front and they are double adj. The car weights about 3200 with the driver and is fully suspended. But I need to know how much rake to give the front end? What is the desired race ride height from the ground to the center of the fender if applicable?
thanks and need to know asap....track tomorrow

If you had your measurments from before, thats best to have until you drive on them and see where you stand. I got a set of QA1's from JLws6 and I drove on them AS IS and i noticed that the rake is awesome but there is some air dam rubbing on hills or steep incline changes,

Not a big issue but I need to crank them up about 1"

As for track settings, you could set them like a 90/10 shock to start and then play with them from there.

You want it rise quickly but stay up so the weight transfer its consistant. Having it bounce back too quickly will unload the rear. Then depending on the rest of the set up, the shocks may need to be staggard but again, thats why they have testing and tuning.

Nope, this car has never seen road time in over 2 years. It just got pieced together and will be out in the next 2 weeks. So I really need a starting point. thanks

Do the Qa1 coilovers lower the car? Like could i get them and use them to lower the front for street use and then raise them up for the track?
