  1. You might be right. I'll give it a few weeks and then tweak the camber and see what I think. Other than the added camber (and added LCA length) I can't think of anything that would cause it.
  2. It has the standard top mounts. As mentioned though, it is running quite a lot (a little too much at the moment) camber on the front which will make the outer edge of the wheel look closer to the wheel arch edge. With normal camber (~0.75 degrees) the arch gap should look ~15mm higher on the front (so flipping it the other way, it currently *looks* as though it is lowered 20mm on the rear and 35mm on the front). The actual ride height shouldn't be any different (assuming minimal tyre deflection). I'll dial the camber back to ~1.8 at some point. It'll still look a little lower on th
  3. Using a bit of trig, I've worked out that the front 'looks' 15-20mm lower than it actually is.its a bit of an optical illusion but this should give you an idea on what it'd look like without the camber (I assumed 0.75 degrees as my baseline)
  4. I have powerflex camber bushes (they came as part of a kit) which push the coffin arms out. They're actually really good... I just wasn't expecting that much when I told them to "max out the front."
  5. 2' toe at the front, 2 degrees 15 minutes camber (i'll bring this back to under 2 in the next few months), 5' toe in the rear with 1.6 degrees of camber. The front camber makes the wheel look 'tucked' but it actually isn't that low.
  6. I've just noticed that those photos make it look incredibly low at the front. It is quite low (probably exaggerated by the camber it's currently running) but not scraping the floor like it looks. The gravel at that place is higher where the front is, it's also very deep
  7. ... And photos https://ibb.co/Prj84KY https://ibb.co/pPbTc43 https://ibb.co/sRvZSFw
  8. I'll take some today. It's now been aligned and is an absolute weapon. It's definitely a lot stiffer but it feels far more composed and less unsettled on poor surfaces. The handling is fantastic and the way it changes direction is immense. I'll probably dial back the alignment in a few months but it is currently running 2.2 degrees camber up front and 1.6 on the rear. That should save the tyres on track but a) it'll probably kill them on the road and b)I'd like to redress the front to rear ratio (maybe go 1.8 on front and 1.6 on rear). I'll upload some ph
  9. Mine is a weekend/track day car only so I'm not too worried about ease of access but that aside, the nogaro is one of my favourite designs.
  10. Nice. I may order a set from you in a few months
  11. Do these bolt straight up tothe stock mounting points (looking at them it seems as though they will)?
  12. I have track day cover with A-Plan (who are amazing) and it costs £200 per year for 5 days. I don't know whether it covers international circuits but worth a look. When I went to the ring back in 2010 we just risked it but I no longer have the courage/stupidity for that. Speaking truthfully, I'd actually be a bit scared to really push it on the ring these days - it's a pretty mad place and I've had enough tank slappers on UK tracks with plenty of run off to make me realise that I probably don't have enough talent for a fast lap of the ring (when I first went it was my first real "t
  13. Here you go: 98734353140504 98733353196504 That's for a manual Cayman R or (so I've read) a PDK boxster Spyder (which kind of makes sense)
  14. Yeah I hear you on that one! I was explaining to somebody recently that on a poorly surfaced road, I could probably navigate it quicker in my jaguar purely due to the better damping. I used to have a 2.5 986 and - as you say - on bad roads the suspension was far more compliant (on track the Cayman is in a different league though). The new setup feels far more compliant. Stiff but well damped.
