It’s only like $2 a bottle but smells like kitty litter, great shine though, just rub it on with a rag

Default Alignment suggestions welcome!

Hey all, looking for suggestions on alignment numbers for my 242.

I need specs that are ok for dailying without destroying the tires too quick, but something moderately aggressive for open road racing.

Suspension setup is this:

Koni yellows
Lesjofors 30mm lowering coils
Kaplhenke adjustable sway bar links
Kaplhenke adjustable torque rods
Kaplhenke adjustable panhard bar
Kaplhenke trailing arm bushings
IPD 25/25 sway bars
IPD lower chassis braces
GT firewall braces

There’s no strut tower bar and no camber modifications to the struts. I’m running 205/50ZR16 Continentals on a set of Gemini wheels.

What kind of numbers should I ask for? Again, going for moderately aggressive but still dailyable. Thanks all!

This is neat, thanks for sharing! The car is a factory intercooler car and as far as I can tell still wears its original paint, so it’s interesting to know the intercooler badge seems to have been replaced

Definitely not an Arizona neighborhood. I may have swapped the license plate with another car so I could drive it while jumping through the necessary hoops to get it registered…
