Alignment for miata nc 2008 with kw v1

Postby dino » Thu Oct 30, 2014 4:18 am

I read and searched the forum and the web and couldn't find a good recommended alignment for nc with KW v1 coilovers. :?
My car is a daily car but I do use it quite hard for canyon drives and willing to sacrifice the daily use for an aggressive driving alignment.

Any recommendations?

Thanks :)

Hi dino,

We love this alignment for daily cars that also see some spirited driving fun on the weekends:

FRONT
Camber: -1.5
Toe: Out 1/32"***
Caster: 5 degrees

REAR
Camber: -1.2
Toe: zero

***: A slight toe out makes the car feel much more nimble and quick to respond to steering inputs. This isn't for everyone as those who aren't used to this might feel uneasy about the 'twitchy' feeling at freeway speeds, but those who are used to autocross set ups will feel right at home with how eager the car is to do what you ask. If you do not like this feeling, try ZERO toe in front.

-Ryan

See same discussion one thread down in Project 2012 PRHT thread....autocross guys love the toe out, average folks generally do not.
