FocusBoy58 -2.5 front -1.5 rear is ideal, but don't worry that's because we suck and have eibachs lol they don't have near enough spring pressure to make up for the understeer! The konis will help us out!

Drove my buddies all stock focus with h&r konis set up 28mm rear 25mm front what a bad ass setup I actually can't believe it, some hard corners later I realized there was almost no understeer..

tukaniSVT Hmm ... now that I think about it ... good point.

It seems my front has a bit more camber than the back at the moment ... Maybe by 1 between the front and back.

wrc_fan ^^ If you're adding more grip to the rear, you will understeer more.

Well, their thought was that I wasn't putting down enough rubber to the ground and hence the back wheels were just sliding out on me. Having my car Understeer tons.

When I raced last weekend ... (of which I still need to load up video to share) ... I tried hard to correct the understeer with some heel-to-toe action shifting back into 1st to steer the car the right way. Point and shoot style.

FocusBoy58 Camber arms are great and suck for two reasons... Poor design is their flaw... They use a one bolt system with a threaded mount which means loosen nut, take bolt off adjustment side and thread the mount inward and put the camber are back in place tighten mount then tighten large bolt... which makes adjusting the mounts a big pain in the ass!!! Took my buddy two hours today to align the whole car when I put the tube chassis on... -1.4 rears, -1.7 fronts...

The plus is they are stiff as heck! If they used a free floating rod with a two bolt locking setup it would be so much easier to dial in camber... It sucks having to unmount it to adjust the camber... I laughed on how difficult they made it... Could of been so much easier...
