Here are my findings so far with different suspensions:
Spring rates:
OEM sport2235
Nitron R15270
Nitron R365 (52) + 2680(70) + 26
Novitec Black Series5070
Novitec Corse + (KW V2)3050
NOVITEC CORSE+ BLACK PERFORMANCE (KW V2)5070
KW V23050
KW V33050
Novitec Competizione + (KW Competition) - race version90140
Novitec Competizione + - Nurburgring version??

Another important element: On the rear we have McPhearson suspension: on the race track and grippy tires the shock is deforming. The upside-down shocks are stronger (resist better to this deformation).

The only suspensions with upside-down design on the rear shocks are:
Intrax
Intrax XL
Ohlins TTX
Novitec Competizione +

How big is the difference: I don't really know :)

Tractive use inverted dampers too, on both front and rear. As well as being more robust they also save unsprung weight that will help with grip and traction.
