Any particular reason for the 1 year warranty vs. the typical lifetime KW?

Can you elaborate a little about tuning high speed compression vs low speed compression? I understand the low speed=handling high speed=bumps correlation, but from a practical tuning symptom/resolution standpoint.

And what would one expect coming from a set of V3's?
KW does NOT offer ANY warranty on their CLUBSPORTS at all. So a 1 year is generous for ANY damper thats designed and intended to be tracked. As mentioned prior, we see the most aggressively tracked T2's and T zero's last 4-5 years. If there is a defect of some kind in a damper it will normally show up within the first year or 4-5k miles. So a year allows one to take it thru its paces and if there is an issue its covered.

I am thinking of 450/450 for the 3 ways as a default rate.

Coming from a V3 you could expect a more noticeable difference from click to click and more low speed damping and the ability to tune high speed compression. Each click is pronounced so you know what the change affected. Right now your high speed compression is fixed, so you would gain that ability and you can tune the chassis for a wider range of situations.

Hope that helps.


EDIT: noticed Andy answered those questions !

Choices are an awesome thing to have.
+1, I was deadset on CRG SRC's now I'm back at square one.
