not trying to bust your *****, I'm glad your back out on the track, but I gotta call myth busters on that ridiculous claim.
DFW is a little different. The local brain trust insist that all Tein Flex be set to #4 and #6 from "full stiff," run another number and "you're wrong." Just how 90% of the DFW crew is running .5* more camber in the rear than front. I twist the *****, and that one click softer in the front changed my day.

i was told 2 5 when i bot them but said f that after my first track day and found that 5 7 worked grate for my car and 4 8 was nice to. i ran gery's 1.8f 2.3r alignment before i knew anything about cars and it was very noob friendly but not for the fast kids.

yeah, that's retarded. unless your claiming that everybody is running the same chassis, tires, tire psi, sways, weight, height, corner balance weights, at the same track in the same weather with the same driving styles. then yeah, a arguement like that could made and be somewhat realistic. otherwise it's dumb and people that follow those rules will be passed by people like me.

like you said, i drive the car, feel what's happening, and adjust accordingly. i too, have turned the ***** 1 more click in the frt. or back before and got it feeling just right. even though according to some people, turning the ***** on my cheap shocks or even tein's "don't change anything on the dyno"
i have a base setting that i stiffen my shocks up to for the track, but depending on the track and conditions, i might have to change the frt./bk. or both as much as 5 clicks to get it to the handling balance i'm looking for. i also take notes of weather, shock settings, tire psi, and handling for each track i've been to this year so that i can have an idea of settings he next time i visit a given track.

Car looks fast, driver not so much

The event "TrackMaster" went off twice in 3 laps in the first session of the same run group, his first off even before taking the green after the full course yellow first lap, so he had little room to bitch at the rest of us LOL.
