    obviously is was negative camber :wack:

    rear camber... at 0, what happens as soon as the car leans over in a corner...

    I take it you mean this from the alignment thread:

    front camber 2.50*, castor 8.00*, toe 0.00*

    What will the effects be of me adding more camber, say 3-4* (I'm not sure how much yet as I dont have the wings fitted) to that set up?

    what about the difference in the leading and trailing wheel? what about the SAI? what about the ARBs? what about thrust angles? what about the effect on toe? what about the akerman? what about the wieght of my balls swinging about?

    you have to consider everything, not just, hmmm thats flat, must be good.

    Fucking stupid wheels, looks like I'll be going down to a 35 profile for more stretch, hopefully that will give more clearance.

    Worse case what could I get away with camber wise and still have a decent setup Mitto?

    So any BMW nuts here?

    What's the best setup for a BMW E36? I've got HSD's (so caster and camber adj.). Going to buy camber arms in the rear and will be running a bit more lock then stock (4mm rack spacers).

    4mm spacers will destroy the seals inside the rack. 3mm max each side. but it don`t help much on the e36/e30 sadly.

    From what I gather, the best value for money lock increaser on an s14 would be...

    chop and relocate bump-stops, Tein rods + washers, and rack spacers? Is that it? Any other mods needed?

    Standard front end apart from coilies, Im hitting full lock a bit now but dont fancy spending too much time or money on it yet...

    1: slam s13
    2: hmm wheels are way diffent then before
    3: skid and live with it

    all this super awesome lock bull shit, and 95% of the people use their lock for the wrong reasons.
