Today was the hillclimb and the testing of the new alignment setup.  The front end grip is better... not awesome but noticeably better .... but I want to try 2* negative camber for next time before I invest in some sticky tires.


The BMW that usually beats me by 5 or so seconds was only 3 seconds in front this time. He runs Advan A050 tires also (Tread wear of 60 ) My Continental Comfort Contact tires are 360 tread wear rated.


Thanks to those that advised me on where I should head with this setup.

Here is the rest of it.









And on the way way home tonight I hosed a young bloke in a bug eye WRX through a few roundabouts for good measure. :lol:

Im redesigning a better mount for this Microtec LCD Dash, as the suction cup sometimes comes unstuck.... usually mid corner. Im going to use the unused clock space on the dash as the mount point.


Here is the start of it. I should have it done for the weekends hillclimb.

So i took it for a bit of a spirited drive this morning .. Its still a bit damp on the roads but anyway it does feel better for sure, but what I did notice is that it seemed to have less body roll...


Im putting this down to the fact that the front now sits 10 or so mm higher due to the spacers and the roll center has now shifted . Now just to bring the back up a little so it matches. :D

Yes i have the whiteline kit already installed. The most noticeable thing is how the steering self centers a lot more and is a little heavier but by no means bad.


I havnt had time to give it any real corners yet, but I do have a hill climb this weekend so that shall be the best proving grounds.
