Thanks man. I went both feet in on the clutch and brake pedal right when I started to spin.

I have a hard time looking at the data on my phone. Shoot, I'm still trying to figure out this software lol. Might be better to export the data and look at it on the PC using another software.

Did you have data to pull your mph and lap times?

B Spec record is a 1:44.3, considering you are on street tires (I assume you still are) you were clicking off pretty good times.
This.

Deng is certainly a good driver with a well setup car, he is on RE71R tires.

Thanks man, I still need a lot of seat time though

and I'm running 205/50 Dunlop Direzza Star Spec IIs at the moment.

Thanks again guys, it means a lot coming from the both of you.

No worries, I wish I still had the re71rs. I killed them from not adjusting tire pressure, they were too high. :( the Star Specs were on sale, so I scooped them up.

And here's a picture that Caliphotography took.

Nice update man.

Glad to hear all is well for both you and the car after your off - pretty sure I'd need a fresh set of underoos after a spin that like at a nearly a buck sixty..! lol

Not much of an update.

Ever since owning the car, the driver's side rear toe has too much toe in, it's off in the .30* range while passenger side is around .15* I'm surprised the off at Big Willow didn't make it more out of spec.

Rear:

Toe
L \ R
.30 \ .15

Camber
L \ R
-.7 \ -.9

I'm experimenting with shims because the idea of using just washers doesn't sit well with me. At least with shims, there is more surface area for the hub assembly to make contact with the torsion beam assembly.

These shims are cut out of .25mm shim stock. There are 6 pictured in the attach photo, but I only used 2 of these shims, and that was enough to kick the toe out from .30* to -.09*. I'm only using one shim now. I might have to pick up some .1mm shim stock and stack again. I really need an alignment rack in my garage.

No need for a rack, just get a set of Smart Strings and a Smart Camber gauge, never visit the alignment shop again. *especially important for those after off-track excursion checks in the paddock.

I did a similar thing, just bought different gauge stainless and cut shims to set the toe to zero.

I've been debating about running 0 rear toe, but since it is my daily maybe a little toe in for highway stability.

Either way, the smart string would be a good investment when I'm playing with shims. I feel it's going to be a steep learning curve for me initially. I figure once the bars are dialed in to the vehicle, future set ups will be a breeze.

Zero in the rear is not an issue for street use - its more about reducing rolling resistance than changing the balance of the car.

Any time you use them on a new car for the first time it adds about 30 min just to dial in the bar setup, after that its easy. One of the best tools we ever bought.

Alright Jason, you talked me into running 0 toe all around, and I also ordered the smart strings lol. I have some stainless 0.05mm shim stock coming, so it's going to be like playing with razor blades!
