    Well its official, northeastern are a bunch of cowboys! all the cambers and casters are out masivly. will post up later. 3 times they have had the car! and 3 times its felt worse.
    Only disappointing thing is they won't let me stay and watch.

    it drives ok, still wouldn't say it was spot on! maybe it to do with the powerflex bushes making it feel hard and bangy,,, if you know what i meen. and also i was told to lower the pressure in the tyres, i had the full wack in front and rear, even though it should be 2bar and 2.4 bar, mine were 2.3 and 2.8, i have released some air but not driven sinse then.

    I believe the powerflex RCABs do transfer the road surface through the car, but lowering the tyre pressure should compensate a little and 'soften' the ride

    does 2bar front and 2.4 bar rear seem right? 18 tyres 225 40 and 255 35. seems a little low?

    It is within the recommended pressures but I'd increase them both front and rear by 0.2bar (3psi) and see how that feels?
