- Background & Plans
Car was bought wrecked from the back. It has been repaired but needs a paint job, hence the name, which was suggested by raidernixon. Turning it into a fun little track car.
At the moment I am getting more comfortable with late braking accompanied with trail braking to rotate into a turn. Car has almost stock rear end so I struggle to exit strong on tight turns. I will try no rear sway bar next HPDE event. At the moment I can hang with new Caymans within the same run group! That makes me feel accomplished...for now.
I am finding out I don't need much camber, maybe -2 or -2.5, I am running -3.2 or so in the pic. I use a level and measuring tape to determine camber, which may not be the best way to do it. Take with grain of salt as I have not taken tire temps or tire wear seriously yet.
(Update 1/17/22) Ok, ran ~-2.5 degrees of camber and got sidewall wear, back to 3.2 it is.
