Currently my wheels sit like this on the front / \.
Which yeah, looks cool and handles quite well, but it eats tyres.

I have FK coilovers on her so i dont know if its camber adjustable?!

Anybody else in a similar siutation?

Cheers

mmm, strange. my clio is setup with a fair bit of -ve camber on ultimate coilovers. it dont eat tyres too bad. ktec camber bolts are ok, think bbpt do some n all. blistein do some as well. no sure about them tho!

I dont tend to light the wheels up tbh. Im afraid it will kill my box :lol:

The tracking it badly out, so that will affect it. Think i will stick on some cheapies and see how it goes. 8)

my trackin is fine but i do have a habit of planting it from time to time, n its all too easy on greasy winter orads to loose traction! :oops: :twisted:

One of the main reasons I just upgraded to Willy track was the fact that I was running silly camber on my standard, knackered valver setup.

I didn't like it at all - on bends the front end felt grippy, yes, but also really flat and not adjustable, like it didn't really want to change direction. And you could feel the back wanting to come round and play but the front didn't want to play ball!

Hopefully, once I've adapted to the new set up, it will be a lot more playful as well as being grippy but adjustable. 8)
