nope. They looked hard to install and I won't have time to align it this month. So in April I'll slap them in with the stiffer springs

Do you guys think I should tinker with alignment adjustments for mine or just continue running stock settings. I still have not figured out what my hatch is capable of on entry speeds but I am pretty sure I am very aware of what it can do when I come in slower than what it can do then accelerating to what it will handle before under steer kicks me in the ass

Brake into the turn, give it more gas as you unwind the wheel past/at the apex. If you are getting understeer mid turn under throttle then you are giving it too much gas too early.

Work on finding those braking points. Pick a turn on the course and keep on braking harder and harder later and later to find where it can go. Goal is to make it muscle memory so when you experience that corner again in another course you know what you can do.

The other more experienced guys can comment further.

Dialed in a bit more camber in the back for the local event this weekend. Moving up from around -.5 per wheel to -1.5 in an attempt get the back end to hook up and net a little more stability in 35-45 degree weather.

are you having issues with the car rotating? running less rear camber could help with that. too much and the rear will grip better, thus amplifying understeer issues.

For the MS3 I would recommend running 0 toe all around, max camber and caster you can get up front (set camber first). and in the rear run maybe 1-1.5 camber. id also run a big honkin rear bar too. and if you still have plow issues maybe consider a tire stagger. one M3 owner runs 255's in front and 235's in rear and it works pretty well.

Addicted to track. Parting a 08 MS3. will trade parts for hoosiers.
