Angry Rear Toe in

Hi all

Need some advice on my little problem i have with my Rear Toe In

I have on my left side 3 and on my right sight 2 Toe In => so far not to bad but:

Im using already the uncentered ball studs: on the left ajusted to have the Min. Toe In and on the right to have the Max Toe In
I have put new suspension Arms, new rear hub carrier in to see if any of these are bend or damaged, but still the same difference in the left and right side

Any ideas ?

thanks

have you adjsuted both the balls on the same arm or just 1 , and are you measuring it from the wheels because possibly the wheels are buckled

I have adjusted both ball studs, and im messure the toe In with the Integy setup tool with should be one of the most exact ones.

Any other suggestion

Just had my first rin with a R2 today (or atleast the euro version (TrioX). All I can say is WOW!!! From a TC3, this thing just feels so planted, even with the standard setup Can't wait to get racing with this thing!!!

Cheers

-Dave
Well the Cuda went pretty well today, first round I was fasted in my heat and beat last years FTQ by 2 seconds, getting my first proper 18 lapper There was one guy in the heat before me though who was flying all day and went 10 seconds faster aparently he loves spending lots of time getting the perfect setup, he certainly had it today, good cells and motor too
The car didn't quite feel so good in the second and third run, the sun was out more and this seemed to make the rear tyres slide a bit mid corner, which scrubbed a lot of speed.
Last qualifier the sun went behind some clouds and I moved the rear shocks out one hole on the shock tower, since they were pretty leant over. The car was back to going round the fast sweeper well but still slid out on the hair pin a bit. I managed to go about a second and a half faster and climb two spaces on the grid. Ending up 4th, less than two tenths behind 3rd who was 2 seconds behind 2nd. The pole guy was 8 seconds ahead though and squeezed in a 19 lapper in his last run Thats modified kind of lap times
The final wasn't great, the first lap and at the first hairpin I tapped the back of a friend who was 3rd I took the corner just a bit too well and had more speed and a tighter line as we exited, it was his bit of road but I couldn't really brake with the one way, I did let off but I guess my drive train was too free after this weeks work I came out 5th and my frined was near the back after then loosing out a bit on the next corner too. He did well to come through the field but I was running pretty much the same lap times as the guys ahead of me so couldn't catch up, then on the last lap I made a small mistake and my mate got past me I was right on his tail as we crossed the line but I suppose it's fair he beat me.

The setup I have seems to be good in the fast stuff but I loose time to others in the slow corners, I suppose it's a compromise but on the often twisty tracks up in Scotland I loose out more than I gain. At Carlisle I had a nice advantage in the end of straight sweeper and chicane which can be taken flat out, since I was using the one way.

The Alfa got it's first use today Dave, plenty of people admiring it, one comment was "it's a cracker" It's handy that the Alfas seems to be the best shell I've found for Carlisle, helps get into the corners

Are you sure you don't have an incorrect hub on one side?
