    Last weekend I was in the paddock at Mid Ohio and saw the (ultimately winning) Acura prototype with brackets and strings on it. That's what I was talking about.

    Lasers vs. string...it's like politics and religion! We all know both work and each have their strengths. :)

    I'm thinking my K could use a small nudge. Just concerned I'd bump it too far. :rolleyes:

    At least we haven't arrived at the "my string's better than your string" point. The K member in my 2011 Mustang GT was off by more than 1/4". I could get -3.5 degrees on both sides just fine, so I didn't bother with trying to fix it.

    String will work but it's knot better than a laser. :D

    :D When I use my laser like a string, it's even better! ;)

    I've been able to get more camber than I need so I wasn't worried about it either. That might change when I adjust for more squat and expect more body roll.

    I beg to differ.

    Rulers are pretty accurate..all the time. Unless a driver decides to open the door...[​IMG] [​IMG]
