Can anyone offer some advice on front/rear compression/rebound settings for these on 96 GT3 please ? Basic staring points for road/dry track/wet track would be awesome.
 
Hi

I have the Manthey KW v3 and the bump rebound set up is as follows,

Front 0.75 bump
Front 1.00 rebound

Rear 0.50 bump
rear 1.50 rebound

All referring to turns open.

Hope this helps
 
Thank you, what sort of use do you use them for ?

I haven't checked the rears yet but my fronts are set to your settings, the steering feels nice and sharp and it feels very controllable beyond the limit but at high speed on rough surfaces it skips about a lot ? Felt like I was airborne on a flat road yesterday.
 
I don't track the GT3 as I have a more track focused car.

I find with the KW's fitted that the front end does skip around on slow speed bumpy roads (we have plenty here in Bournemouth!) but once you get onto smoother faster roads the turn in is razor sharp. JZM set my car up and it is really great for high speed hooning. It feels really planted at speed, I'm very happy with the KW's
