    Usually I try minimized, unless it looks too low. (Anything less than 105mm is generally suspicious, but some cars are fine lower, and some need to be a little higher).

    If I have bouncing problems which appear to result from the modelling of bottoming-out, I will try raising the height a little.

    Usually I end up having the front a little lower than the rear--sometimes a lot.

    It's not clear it's real-world physics, but in [size=+1]GT1[/size] it does seem that low front ride-height allows more steering control through a corner without contributing fatal final oversteer. (Except perhaps on RX-7s which seem to have a tendency to sudden mid-corner or final oversteer).

    So I guess I'd generalize to low front/high rear.

    Lately I've been using a high ride height so I could have a total balance for on-road and off-road...

    Off-road. :D

    The famous Deep Forest Racing Way or Autumn Ring off-road courses, right?

    Actually some people say maxed ride-height helps on the banked tracks (High Speed Ring and more especially the Test Track).

    As low as it can go. So my ride looks sweet.

    I use the high ride height in Trial Mountain so I could cut through that turn before the finish line

    Natural-Aspirated cars handle beautifully with the low ride height setting
