Interesting that you mention GEO senoj, at some stage I'm sure I'll be up to CG, but in the meantime is there anything that means the excellent indie who's doing the pre-sale prep couldn't set the car to factory GEO? I'm just thinking about how adjustable they are, ride height for example. I'm assuming ride height has a factory setting which is road/tyre friendly?


I had my GT3 set up by Chris at COG. My ride height was set to low from the factory. I had 5-10mm of travel on the rear shocks. Was hitting the bump stops on A and B roads. Handling felt scary.Rear roll bar was set to its stiffest also.Definately set more for track. My car spens 99% of its time on the road, so a road setup is what Chris did.I was ther 11 hours, so many thing were adjusted and shims changed. Wow what a difference. Felt like i had a new car.

Interesting evodarren, you don't happen to know what the other settings looked like after CG, e.g. The front and rear negative cambers? If the front for example has a factory/road range of -0.5 to -1.5 would be interesting to know where Chris put yours. LIkewise at the rear, the range was -1 to -3, what did Chris go for?

Looking at where he put my C4S last year versus the range, it looks to me as if he goes for the smallest values in these ranges when setting a car from for somebody who says they want neutral handling.

Brilliant, thanks! We (indie and me) were discussing -0.5 front and -1.0 rear yesterday, so on the right track (pardon the pun), this is really helpful Thumb
