    Coilover dampening adjustments

    I've got a 2013 wrx with ISC n1 coil overs and just installed white-line sway bars and HD end links. The dampening is set half way front and rear 16 out of 32 way adjustable. I've done two autox events now and am just wonder what others have their dampening set at that might improve handling further more? Thanks!

    That all depends on how it handles right now. If you're not getting the desired handling characteristics out of the car, make adjustments and try again. Around town I went for as neutral as I could get, on the autox course, I prefer a minor amount of oversteer and made my adjustments accordingly. But my numbers, and anyone elses for that matter, are not necessarily going to be the same as what yours will be for YOUR ideal set up.

    There is no number we can just throw out there to give you what you want, it's something you have to play with on your own. Just FYI, in general you'll come out with staggared numbers, i.e. front higher or lower than the rear when you find the right mix. My set up never had equal adjustment front to rear.

    Focus on doing "test & tune" events vs points/standings events. You typically get more runs in, and that's the entire point of adjust your suspension setups to see which one suits your driving style most.
