Want some new struts? What brand springs to buy? How much camber to run? What brake pads? What's the best setup for your situation....

corner balance and alignment

Postby Alxsmt » Sat Mar 29, 2014 7:25 pm

there ya have it. the weight is with me and 3/4 of a tank of gas. Its close enough considering I usually race with more gas (it will cut out from no fuel) and have a passenger half the time.

its pretty much with in ~50lbs of being perfect. 60/40

intercomp scales and smart strings alignment setup

-1.5* camber up front
rear was -1* If I remember right, and you cant adjust it so I didnt check it this time
toe is 0
caster was +5 last I had it checked with the subframe pushed forward as far as it goes

Mine figured about 2700 without me in it...so you're a little lighter than that unless you're super skinny. haha

The scales I used were at the dragstrip, NO idea how accurate they are. I have access to one of these Longacre setups though so I could do this on mine and see more accurate numbers.

this was with me in it, cannot remember the particulars, but I was around 140-150ish lbs *cough* then...full interior (relatively speaking) I do not have AC, but have hardware, speakers and a boombox....connected sway bar and pic was taken before tuning...lost the pics for the tuned suspension. I believe this was somewhere in the fall of '06.

Currently standing I think the car will be around 30XX/31XX lbs (min/max) with me in it...

nice, our cars are pretty close to the same weight then. I was thinking mine was a freak light model. I have no ac related components

do you mean like this? :-)
no front swaybar
600lbs springs all around with adjustable perches
1" addco rear
camber plates
koni yellows

I only took took it as close as I did because with more gas, and a passenger it changes everything. kinda picked an in the middle balance
