Do you have a sway bar as well? I've just sourced sway bars, and will try their original recommended settings again, this time with 22mm Perrin sway bar at its soft setting (which is very close to what they asked for in recommend setup instructions).

After a lot of testing with that setup, I'll also test out a complementary 19mm rear bar. We'll see how it all works out

Not sure who that was addressed to. If it was me, yes. I set it to 2/2 (max stiffness is 4/4). Front end response was too delayed at 1/1.

Yep, it was to you. I'm guessing it's Karcepts bar with that many settings? My baseline setup recommends 2/3 with that bar, which is almost 100% stiffer than stock. My 22mm setup will be 109% stiffer than stock.

I've finally settled on this for sporty driving:

7 rebound / 4 compression


Rear:
9 rebound / 4 compression

Camber:
-3.5 F / -2.x R

Karcepts front bar on 2/2

This is with 17x9 Michelin PS4S in 245/40 @ 28psi. I still haven't made it to the track yet, but I doubt I will change it much there. Maybe a tad more rebound.

I really struggled to tame undulations with this setup. High speed shock movements like potholes and bumps are fine. Minor imperfections in the road can cause the car to jitter vertically. Letting a bunch of air out of the tires and bumping up compression helped.

I've driven your car a bit, it can handle even more compression than that without issue.

It's really nicely set up, curious how it goes for you on track instead of solely autocross.
