yeah my roll center is fucked now too. its these damn stupid trends, i was happy monster truckin'
because ive reduced ackerman my inside wheel is going to toe in and drag on cornering, which would mean less grip and more prone to understeer?, but it makes it a hell of a lot more stable when im going sideways down a straight
Enirkys ^^^ Thanks mate. Just reading up on stuff that you have mentioned there. Your point about finding grip and finding the problem instead of masking it is soooo true.
someone stickey this thread!
Also, i fund running front toe out has its true gain on fast corners, where as i don't find neutral toe to toe out making as much of a differece on slower corners... would toe in even be better on slow corners than toe out?
and is toe out also compensating for the loss of inner edge grip due to negative camber?
(and im only referring to front rack alignment, wouldn't the world be easy if we all owned live axles.)
I've never really seen toe out as a compensation for negative camber though. Anyone else know much about the relationship between the two?
I run pretty much the same as brett...
Camber: -3 degrees
Toe : 4mm out total
Caster : 7 degrees
Toe: 0mm toe
Any w/a settings around that seem to work for silvias..
There are so many differences in different makes and models, suspension types on different cars and verables in types of tyers on cars and condition of bushes that the same thing that works for one care may not work well on the same make and model....
You just got to get a w/a thats recomended for your cars make and model and ajust it other time till you get what works for you and your car (well at lest thats what i did)....

i would never ever go to *insert overmarketed tyre / luxury rim seller here* and get a wheel alignment, after a bad experience when i was desperate to get one done.
i hate he people who bitch moan and complain about paying a bit extra to get it done at the above mentioned places, then go to habib's down the road to get a $30 wheel alignment to 1. not receive a printout 2. find the car pulls to the left/right and 3. you have no idea wtf someone has just done to the suspension of your vehicle.
So got the car back from the alignment place today, very happy with the results so far . Explained to them that I was getting a bit of understeer and the rear felt a bit weird mod-corner so they made some recommendations and we tried it out.
Camber : -1.7 degrees
Toe : 0mm total
Castor : +7 degrees
Camber : -2.0 degrees
Toe : 2mm total toe out
Asked him about adjustments on the rear traction rods, and he said it does need adjustment depending on your camber, toe and ride height.
