Post Tracking and geometry
Any tips on tracking up my libra properly? The car needs going through completely tracking and camber. Seen all sorts people using string, planks of wood etc, or am I best paying someone to laser align it

Replied to your thread in the Libra/Spyder section. I improved mine massively with two straight edges set parallel and measuring off them plus a plumb stick for the camber. I do plan to take it to Dave Gallop at Track Developments when I've fixed the worn out trailing arm joints and when I've got a few more track miles under my belt so I know what to ask for!

When reading the build manual it sounds as though it wasn't updated for the later wishbone setup

With the lattice style wishbones and eccentric bolts, should the bottom bolt do the caster and the top one do camber or is it more complicated than that?

I'm assuming that as the front caster/camber is fixed the best place to start is tracking the front up then seeing how the rear relates to it?

So track front, track rear, then adjust the rear caster/camber angles on the eccentric bolts
