Default First time autocrossing this weekend

Hi all, just wondering if I can do any last minute adjustments to my suspension set up.
I have the Ksport Kontrol Pro, so far factory damping and lowered the car about 2"
Should I make the spring harder or damping harder? Brakes are stoptech and pads blue hawks.
Thank you

Have fun, I'd just pick something to start with and adjust based on how it feels. Enjoy it!

Tires seem to be a big part of cone racing. whats the wheel/tire setup? you can play with pressures to dial in the the amount of grip at the limit.

I have Michelin Pilot Super Sports in 245/45/17 and they seem happy around 32 PSI hot.

Please report back your findings, been curious about the performance of those tires. Quite a few cars at the last autox race i attended wore them and they are competitively priced.

Hey so, ss595, not good at all🙈 I kind of knew, because those were my entry tires to get the car on the road after spending countless time and money, today temperature was around 85-90 I run 37psi wasn't eating up the tire walls, really no grip, and I'm a novice, but as soon as you do a chicane for example, you have no more grip for the next turn coming.
It was a fun day over all need to make the coilovers harder because i had tires rubbing at every runs, so I made adjustments as the day was going, I'm going to a track day in September and will NOT use those tires 🙂
Thank you all for you advises and this forum support.
Here is a few second of my last run taken by a friend

Congrats on your first AutoX! Are you hooked?

From the video it looks like the car was rotating pretty well - would you agree with that or were you understeering?
