Oh no! So I was thinking about the KW V3's for my street E46 ZHP that I'd like to slowly start converting over to be a little more track focused for the occasional drivers ed event. What really attracted me to those were the remote reservoirs. But I hadn't really considered that progressive springs might not be ideal for my purposes. What would you recommend for a better track-appropriate setup and why, remembering that this will still be mostly driven on the street. Ideally, I'd like to decrease midcorner wallow, and with it, the amount of time the car takes to settle in an S-curve transition. Any recommendations are appreciated.
