    Default wheel alignment

    hey all
    got a wheel alignment done last night
    thought id take some of the settings ive seen on here in. i decided to go with

    caster-stock rods maxed out: +3
    toe: 1mm out over all
    camber-non adjustable(rona arms): -1.3
    thats with 8kg adjustable coilovers

    and it wasnt bad, so i first thought till i slid the first corner, the first half of the corner was great then it just wanted to straighten up strait away

    im guessing if i run a little less castor this will solve the problem??

    what would be the best set up in my case for drift?

    any help would be exellent!

    thank you

    1mm toe-out is up to opinion. I would go zero toe.

    i run similar setup to that (-2.5 camber, 1mm toe out, +2 degrees castor) and dont have any of those problems. what is the rest of your suspension setup like? swaybars etc?

    probably cos youre running 35kw lol, what do you meen by stratening up? understeering or not continuing a slide, if its the 2nd option get some smaller tires like 155 50 14s if its the first option lAck of camber will do it espacialy cos you have re001s on front(unless youre running 40psi in them lol!

    Your car straightens up after a slide? doesnt sound like a problem with a wheel alignment problem to me.. think about it
