I've never gone past 1 1/2 turns, so I can imagine that the Konis would overdamp wagon pinks. They'll take quite a bit more spring. Bigsky is pretty happy with his Koni/Tarmac setup as you know. I would say that on full soft the JDM pinks are slightly underdamped, so I run 1/2 turn F, 1/4 turn rear on the street. Also, it preserves a little understeer, which is safer for the street.

On track it's 1 1/2 turn F, 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 turn rear, depending.

that's part of the fun of konis -- adjusting them!
My suspension is just getting stiffer and stiffer, I guess when we reinstall
the springs, few days are still needed for them to settle back down.
They are giving me the exact performance I was looking for.
One question to ask you, what's your tire and what tire pressure F/R you
are running on track days? Do you have any suggestion for Auto-X?
