well it's a good deal if it is true that the retail price seems to be the same as the standard BD

I run about one degree of negative camber in the back of my BD, but when you press the suspension on one side to recreate the car cornering, the camber changes to positive. Looking at my tyres they wear on the sides of the tyre due to the camber changes. I've mucked with the roll centre, but what ever I do I can not get rid of this positive chamber change on the outside tyre while cornering. Any ideas?

Add more camber. I use gauges as a guide, but my final camber setting is based on tire wear patterns. A stiffer setup or sway bar will also make the car roll less.

Hi All!!

I bought the complete set of Rayspeed Shock Pistons, and I' ve noticed a small circular groove on one of the piston faces:

do you know the reason for this and which side I will have to place it?
Towards the bladder or towards the other side?

Thanks,
Eddi.

Yes as long as you do the same to all four of them.

You are probably right on that, I always do that and sometimes think that everyone else would do the same. I should know better...
