very nice pics
anyone have first hand experience with these and KW's....thinking of ditching my clubsports for these or AST's.
My problem i 'think' is springs not being stiff enough .....when I get my clubsports set to where it feels good in the smooth corners,..i take a turn with bumps and it skips. I know the rates are about the same but the single adjustable seem better to the average user.

The DFVs have a Super High Speed path specifically for that scenario, the tire can get up and done fast to reduce skipping. All other shocks have 2 oil paths for high and lowe speed, DFVs have a 3rd Super High Speed path which is basically a 2 way blow off valve.

This where the name comes from Dual Flow Valve (DFV), 2 way Super High Speed (Blow off) path for Fast Bumps or Bumps at High speeds, car simply stays settled..

what spring rates yoir clubsports?
so you say springs are too soft but but skips on bumps?
i would say missconfiguration.

Ohlins should be good but i personally addicted to separate adjustability of bump/rebound...

I have the stock springs on them. So 572lbs I believe. I am no pro at this and can only experiment with what is said online. But if I get it so the body roll is how I like...very little(comptech front sway on full stiff and 255s)...it will not handle bumpy corners well so I assume my rebound is too stiff. I am set at 3 from full stiff on bump and 5 and 7 from full stiff on rebound. I know this isnt a setup thread but those kw's are being sent back due to the rebound adjuster cap\seal coming loose and the o ring not sealing on top so I am probably gonna order new shocks and just sell the kw when they come back.

5-7 rebound sounds very stiff - this is probably why the car bounces.
also adding huge sway creates more difficult environment for the dumper - sometimes the dumper gets overwhelmed.

When I had CS's I ran them at two sweeps comp and rebound at 4-6. No problems with small bumps but larger bumps were an issue and it wasn't because they were too stiff.

Me too. But I already have the Evasive SRC waiting to be installed and I am considering buying the DFV as well so I can try them back to back, but the problem with that is if I have both I will just want to sell them both and buy the Ohlins TTX.

You have your answer.
I would still buy both so you can see the difference
