I also am speaking relative to the OE dampers which leads me to believe I dialed in a bit too much rebound stiffness and in turn reduced weight transfer. The passive rear steer/toe gain on the control blade suspension setup relies on weight transfer for rotation.

The focus is surprisingly agile and gains little camber with steering input when compared to other McStrut designs (A La BMW).
Thank you for your input.
Have you lowered the FF? If not, lowering will tend to make the camber more negative.
