Re: Lower car - suspension geometry question?
He needs to look carefully at the GTV's front suspension design.
His diagrams show the angle of the wheel changing in relation to the strut. That can't happen. The hub is bolted to the strut, so it stays at exactly the same angle to the strut no matter how the suspension moves.
Lowering will give slightly more -ve camber because the wheel moves upwards into the arch slightly more. But the amount of -ve camber will not be a problem.
What will be a problem is the tracking. Make sure it is set to 0mm tow. Any toe-out will quickly scrub off the inner edge of the tyre.
