    Camber

    Well i knew i had a camber problem at the rear, but couldnt tell how serious untill yesterday.

    I took the car out in the wet, everytime i tried to accelerate the back end was all over the place, took the car home and put it in the garage, it was then that i noticed the wet tyre print left on the floor, front tyre showed full width (adjusted camber with pillow mounts) but rear tyre left a mark around 2/3 of the tyre width which gave me 150mm contact with the road

    Need camber arms... Then you'll probably have to roll the arches...

    I've also noticed som very reduced grip when it's wet.
    I could have ****ty tires to.

    But my rear end grip is pretty ridicolous.
    touching the gas on an onramp in the wet, and the second i hit boost the car lost the rear end.
    And that was with stockish power and the boost never got over 0.2 bar

    Will have the wheel alignment looked up when spring time comes and see if it gets better.
    Can't the rear camber be adjusted without buying camber arms?

    i have to say i got all four wheels aligned a little while ago and the difference even with the 3.5 degrees of neg camber on the rear was greatly improved, im hopefully getting some cmber arms from bren this month to cure that but also reckon rolling the arches is going to be a must...........pain in the rear

    Cheaper than new tyres though.
