I knew the camber couldn't be adjusted, didn't meant to sound like I was saying otherwise.
My point really was just that any suspension geometry setup is a matter of compromising on lots of different factors, and manufacturers just set things up "out of the box" for the best compromise in their eyes for the majority of owners.
From memory I think that the Focus RS has 2 degrees neg camber, which is a lot for a road car. I think this helps explain its good cornering abilty (obviously plus its LSD, plus 8x18 low profile wheels).
Q: Is there anything inherent in the 156/147 front suspension setup that means you wouldn't be able to fit a camber adjustable coil over kit?
(For example for normal Ford focuses you can buy a simple camber kit that works with the standard suspension to give 1 degree camber adjustment. The focus just has mcpherson struts up front)
I have had my GTA at 0 deg toe-in for the last year, and tyre wear hasnt been too bad on the inside at all. Of course track use helps ensure that the outside of the tyre gets a fair bit of use as well, so I haven't really been suffering premature inside wear.
(EDIT: like the AO'er above said, the geometry settings have also remained constant on my car since they were altered despite numerous track days, and some poor Irish roads)
BTW I am just wondering if any brave souls have actually tried positive toe-in (i.e negative toe out), for that extra sharp but slightly more volatile cornering?
I imagine it might increase tyre wear again, but I'm not too fussed (within reason).
(..or is this just pub talk?
..Hmm where did I put my beer?
