    Hey I have just fitted 4mm rack spacers to my e36 but don't have any way of getting the tracking done before a track/drift day at coombe on Friday is this gonna cause me any major headaches if I'd do a day with the tracking slightly out
    Thanks in advance :)

    If you have adjusted the track rods into the ends by 4mm you should be close enough till you can get it set up properly, have a good time at Coombe but be careful on Quarry!

    I always done mine by eye, then put steering wheel back on centrally if it was out.

    Ill adjust it up tomorrow and then get it setup
    Do they really make a difference though as if I'm toe on 4mm don't this just cancel out the spacers #confused

    I had to wind mine in more than 4mm to get them looking right. Just keep having a play and do it by eye.

    Dont try going out without adjusting them you will be all over the place
