I still don't know how to tell what spring rate I'm at since it's adjustable (help?) but Megan's site says they're 8kg/front 6kg/rear.
The spring rate isn't adjustable - the dampener is. The spring rates you found are right, but usually spring rates are given in pounds for easier comparison to other springs. 8kg springs are about 440lbs and 6kg springs are about 350lbs, as I recall. I'm sure you can find the math somewhere to be sure, but that's accurate enough for your purposes.

And to clarify, because it's really really important. You do not want positive camber. KC meant you want as much negative camber as possible. Positive camber can even be dangerous.

After that, tires and seat time are going to be your best helpers.
