Dude, those look FANTASTIC
That they do. Glad this got done!
I am so looking forward to putting these on! :drool Colin, email sent.
You can't see them once they are on the car... I do like that Green though!
You can see a little of them...
So, looks like you set approximate desired caster (amount to add to stock) with the outboard slider & bolts before installation. Hopefully there's enough clearance to reach the inner bolts with a ball-end wrench to adjust camber on the car, without cutting the towers. Though I've cut my towers before, no big deal.
Well, considering I'm buying a R53...
I might have to add these to my parts list.
I sent out the first five on black friday. I came up short on some other hardware so ill be waiting for that to get the other 5 out. Its only a day or so out.
Zillon let me know if you need a set. I cut parts to make 30 pairs.
Looking forward to getting mine.
Got mine today Colin. Outstanding! Contemplating parting with the R53, but I've slept since then....
Currently trying to figure out which coilovers I want - pardon my ignorance, but I've missed a lot of discussion in the thread.
I'm assuming these work with anything designed to use the stock upper strut mount, right?
Yeah i saw that and was wondering what that stress test really did to you.
I knew it must have done something because you forgot to call back.
I didn't forget... I've got you on to do list. Thanks for the reminder!
Arrived yesterday! SWEET! Way to go Colin!!!!
So Colin.... Want to share with us some pointers for setup?
As in... if we adjust caster all the way forward vs. all the way back, approximately how does that compare to stock?
Ditto for the camber adjustment?
I'm trying to figure out a preliminary starting point before I take it to be aligned. And looks like caster needs to be dialed in before assembly, anyway.
The answer for caster: all of it.
That's the starting point. According to Jan, you can back off camber a bit with the added caster. Less camber=better straight line acceleration and braking, the caster allows you to run less camber but keep the grip in the turns.
Jan does some stuff with toe too, but I'm starting at 0 toe up front most likely, and a little in the rear.
Yeah, I get all that. I'm asking Colin specifically how these plates work, what we should expect at the limits, etc.
I'm also aiming for max caster, -2 camber. I like a little toe out in the front (like 1/8" total), and a little toe in, in the rear (like, 1/16" total). Or something like that.
Pretty much what I'm doing, minus the camel toe out in front.
(That was just for you Nate).
I have camber at -2.0. but my toe is opposite of you with a little up front for turn in and 0 on the rear.
