thanks for the helpful input. I was mainly interested in the rears actually. I have a little toe in on mine and was thinking I want to make it toe out a hair instead. Im having difficulty finding a shop that will mess with the rear. even the "local scca recommended performance alignment shop" wont deal with it because I did a disc swap and they dont want to have to deal with shimming the calipers as well. I typically run a full good year slick on my car, unless its a chilly day or rain then i run dunlop star specs.The above post is so true. Problem seems to be that most of the people who really raced MK1's and knew their stuff have moved on. Here is my setup, I don't think I've finished out of the top 5 this year (raw times excluding carts) but there always seem to be a Z06's or S200 that is better driven. One of these days I'll land a FTD but until then....
tow OUT around 1/16"
max caster (I am running offset derlin bushings)
(not adjustable so have to use shims)
I believe it has 1/32" toe IN right now
That is what I am running right now. I've tried other variations but my car is handling better now than ever before. Tires will also play a role in how much camber you run since some like more or less but that is something you will need to experiment with. I am running Hankook Z214 tires.
I will stress this. Everyone focuses on the front alignment specs and most are running almost identical setups. Somewhere 2.5 to 3.5 negative camber, a bit of tow out and max caster. Same old story but don't overlook the rear specs. The rear does make a difference and worth the effort. Can't remember the website, but do a google search and you'll find it. With the site, you take your current rear specs and your desired rear specs key them into the site and they will custom machine a solid metal shim. Pretty slick product and I believe it was only $35 per corner.
the car i just got is a supercharged mk1 scirocco so i kind of have the feeling of just nailing the right smooth speed. I have it corner balanced and weighted out best i could.Driving a supercharged Elise all last year really opened my eyes to driving smooth. That thing would bite you in the ass any time you gave it the opportunity.
