    Wheel alignment on exo-car?

    I am looking at the wheel alignment of an exo-car (RCR Superlite Razor) and would appreciate some basic guidelines. Any ideas for a good starting point for things like toe-in/out, etc.??

    Hi Aflo, I would suggest to Contact Fran from RCR he is available over on this page
    Calling all rcr soldiers - GT40s.com
    I'm sure he will know as he builds them.

    I have done this (my first thing) but his response was to go to a "race prep shop" for this. I was hoping for some starting points on the basic settings but that wasn't in the response.
    I can understand that his advice, as the manufacturer, carries more weight, and possibly some legal implications if he gives it. It is a complicated subject and an improper setup could be dangerous.
    I will probably set everything to 0 except for a bit of toe-in on the front wheels. The camber, etc. will be just checked to make sure that they are at least same right to left.

    Hi Aflo I am surprised he was not more helpful, did you not buy it direct from him ? maybe it was a busy day for him, but still its one of his cars, have you tried here
    ExoCars, Kit Car Forum, Atom Ariel, Kit Speed, Superlite Roadster, Cobra, reverse trike, lotus, Caterham, Sonic7,Ariel Atom, KTM, for sale, I have seen people ask for alignment there, also have a dig on gt40 I know its mentioned there.

    and then there is this post

    That last link you showed is good. Thanks.

    I would start with zero camber, somewhere between 5 and 8 degrees caster, and 1/16 to 1/8 total toe in and just test and try from there.
