Do you tap the brakes on the approach to Hogpen to settle the front? With the pins still in and stock suspension, I would always have to wait out some initial understeer, but less if I tapped the brakes.

I did the pins last weekend and can absolutely feel the extra camber. So much so that I think I'll get camber plates in the spring.

Unfortunately guys, I can't join you in November because I'm all out of budget, going as I am to the USGP in Austin. (blush). The sacrifices I sometimes make...
