    is there any factory or race suspension design that automatically toes one side out and the other side in depending on which direction the car is being turned? would this give more ultimate control than both sides toed in?

    Plan is to make them for ~ -3 for now. I know I won't make much money on them, but since I need some I figure I'll make a fixture and supply a few sets to others (through the festiva store).
    you could send me a sent!

    Yeah, I made those 3 years ago when I was tuning Tweak. You need different ones for different ride heights. If I were to tool up to make them now I'd have 500 bucks a set into them. I'm swamped with orders for Apache helicopter parts. That pays a little more than car parts.

    I can't even afford to make them for myself. Lol. I'm first in line to buy a set from whoever makes them. I think Nate is considering making them for the Festiva store.

    Run -3 all the time. As long as your toe is zeroed, you won't notice tire wear problems and you'll get much better ride stability and wet weather traction in the rear. It also helps with fuel mileage. I've been running lots of negative camber on these cars for years now and have yet to see a problem with it. I'm at around -4 degrees now!

    Recently bought alignment shims for the rear, code 75200....

    We were fixing a problem of 1 inch of toe in, and changed the camber by zero. Very easy to use. I like them better than using a washer just because there is full contact.
