For both my kits so far, i have found the stock setting too tight and have had to loosen it off. Try 2 turns.

So, is that 2 turns out from the bottom, or 5 (the stock 3, plus 2)?

TIA,

I just checked mine and it's at almost 3 turns out. More like 2.90 turns out with an NS5.

Ok, starting with the rear, measured from the bottom of the arm and hub. I forget what my toe-in was. Somewhere around 2.5-3.0 degrees.

Back pivot ball- 3.5mm
Front pivot ball- 2mm
Camber link gap(between the caps)- 13.5mm


Fronts
Top(measured from the top)- 2.5mm
Bottom(measured from the bottom)- 2mm
Camber is around 2 degrees.

Back it 2 turns more than std Start the car and while it's on your starter box, rev the engine. You should definitely hear it change. Then you can start making adjustments from there. I've found each car to be slightly different

Thanks, will try that out.

I've also been running it as rich as it'll run, so it may not be hitting enough rpms to switch it yet. Later this week I'm going to start leaning it out. Zoommmm.

10x can you tell me something about droop settings. The original settings are for 66mm tires so if I have 63mm now should I decrease the droop by 3mm after I readjust the ride height
