I was with Verizon before I switched to Sprint. I loved Verizon but wanted one of the new 4G phones and I was tired of Blackberry. It was between the EVO and the iPhone and I just couldn't justify spending that much money on a phone. Plus Sprint gave me a killer deal on my plan because of work.

But when I was running -2.5 camber, stock toe, I had the same issue with eating through the inner of the tire.
zero toe, toe is the inward/outward tilt of the tire / \ like that would be horrible toe camber is the inward/outward tilt of the tire looking at it from the top negative camber will always make your inside tire wear bad unless you get camber plates to fix it. Toe will have uneven tread wear across the whole tread it's like thrust angle but on the front tires. Ya know how thrust angle can cause dog legging? and wear all the tires horribly? Anyhow SAI does effect some tire wear but it's more how much effort it takes to turn the wheel and if the wheel will return to you after the turn. Caster is the forward/reward tilt of the upper pivot point. Not a tire wearing angle. negative camber will always chew up your tires. I gotta see your set up

I know what toe, camber, and caster are as all play a big role in a cars handling characteristics. I'm just repeating what I've experienced and what I've been told by actual drivers and owners of professional race teams. I guess we will have to agree to disagree.

And Saturday is the day Ryan, Brad, and I will most likely be driving to the hospital with two drunk/dying chicks in the back seat. We will have to take Ryan's car because he is the only one with 4 doors... But hey, itll be fun, and no need for you two to play ninjas this time.

How are you and XIXI getting -2.5?? I was only able to get -1.8 with my pins pulled without camber plates.

Anything much more than -1.7 is unheard of..

I thought I told you I got plates and the TMS rear arms. I got them for Hallet, Staub told me it would help me adjust my setup a bit between runs.

Just dont tell Julie.

I dont much like yellow lights.

Maybe add some blue and red underglow? they have the kind that strobes with your music at like autozone and places like that.

If you do time attack then maybe some matching caliper paint? That might look sick...



But I think as Ive said before, Black on yellow is :barf:

Yellow calipers looks like Porsche Ceramics. Not a bad thing.

One thing I thought of that Anyone could do I guess. Get some radiator that would fit in the bottom center opening and mount it there. Preferably a nice clean raw metal look. As if it were an intercooler. And delete that plastic "grill" of cource.

kinda like this:
