Hello fellow owners and MPP. Front end alignment is a must with any car regardless of whether it will be lowered. What are your guys thoughts on a front end camber/toe kit?

We working on that as we speak, at this point, we could really use the extra negative camber to improve our lap times. It will also help with fine tuning wheel fitment!

I'm looking forward to this and the adjustable dampers! Hopefully it'll be easily adjustable so we can run an efficient camber for DD and an aggressive one for the track.

With the design we tested at the track last week, it will require a jack and a wrench to adjust. That's all the information you get right now ;)

Remember that under forward thrust, wheels toe out a bit, so slight static toe in results in less toe (or even possibly toe out) under part throttle in a turn.

We have done about 6 revisions in the past 2 months and are now very close to production. We need to get out on the track with our final version to make sure it can handle the abuse! The weather has been improving here so it is very promising for a summer release.
Take my money already. :p
