What a huge difference... the car feels PLANTED!! and turn in so sharp.. I can't wait to get on the track with these.. I have -2.5 camber upfront and -2 at the rear...

Also got Mike Benvo to code away my errors and while he was it he also added Euro MDM ... can't wait to get on the track with this...

Got my second-hand Vorshlag plates (thx Chris) installed and aligned yesterday at Group2 (thx other Chris). I was planning to get separate street and track alignments but was convinced to just try -2.5 fixed first so thats what we did. Then I threw on my track wheels to get a few miles on the tires. Then it rained today and the temp can't seem to get above 50F and with new NT05s I have zero traction above granny speed. Car looks good though.

Props to Group 2 Motorsports for good work at a decent price, a nice garage, and friendly staff. My steering is a tiny bit off center and my OCD is going to make me go back to have it corrected but all in all it was a great experience.

yep that is a good place to start. i was at -2.5 also but felt it needed a little more for street tire possbily as much as 3.0 but starts getting to be a little much for street use then.

why does the M3 have such little camber stock? It definitely doesn't turn in very fast compared to sports cars I've had in the past.

If you free around 12pm on Sun, maybe we can meet up for some tweaking and another DVD.
