Unhappy Front end question

Hello everybody,

I like to get some feedback on where some of the Cobra front end settings are.
Please send me the settings for Toe, Caster and Camber also indicating the Tire size and make of the car.

That will help me to find the best setting for my car.

Thank you all

Thomas K.

Default What...?

Don't tell me knowbody know what thier set up is???? Mine is way out of wack! I am running 285's up front and I set the whole thing up on zero! it is not working to well, at the track I am being left in the dust on the turns.............SO does anybody run thier Lone Star on the track? If so what is your car set up to?? Here is what I think it should be:
Toe = zero to -.5
Caster = 5 deg
Camber = 2 deg

Any thoughts?

L8R,
Brian

While my car is not a Cobra,but a 3100 lb. 65 Mustang I will post my frontend settings.This setting does work extremely well on the road course and drives very well on the highway.........

Caster---2.5 degrees positive-both front wheels
Camber---.5 degree negative--both front tires
1/16 of an inch toe-in........

Tire wear is not bad on the street at all...... I have tried other settings and this one seems to be a good compromise for the road course and street.........

Some of the Vintage Mustangs that are strictly track only race cars run the following settings;

caster---4.0 degress positive--both front wheels
camber 1.5 degress negative---both front tires
0 or no toe-in at all

Default LoneStar Recomendation

Here is what LoneStar sent me:

Toe total (1/8)" on both sides, + or - (3/32) PREFER 1/8

Camber - 1 (1/2), + or - (1/2) deg on both sides

Caster + 4 (1/2), + or - 1 deg PREFER 5 Deg
