Just installed my KW1.... runs great! :-)

...come back after a first ride with my new KW1.. lot's of fun, good feeling, even enough comfort! because of the QTP's i have to have a little more attention... they are really near the road now.. waiting on my 22-rims, after the level will be definitively fixed, think some millimeters higher than at the moment..

Do you know if that is the lowest setting on the KW1's or can you go lower? You car looks great!!! Can't wait to see it with 22's

I have KW v1's on mine and I have mine dropped over 2" right now. I love the look and the handling is great.

SSwitzerland, yours is looking great.

hi dude, with the KW1 go can go to a max of 2"... but depends on the rims.. with my new 22 i'll probably go 1" front and rear, so you can see the full halfmoon over the tires..

txs.. yes the handling is perfect now, espacially for the rides in our mountains the most of the really fast superbikes have no chance in the u-turns!!!

Looks great!

I too have my KW V1s installed and love the ride and handling! I have mine about 1 up front and 1.5 on the rear. Not too low but I do have a full body kit so can't go to low since I drive it daily.

Pedders makes a system that we can get your Challenger SRT8 to outcorner your Camaro as it sits right now! So would that make your wife happy?? LOL
