Hi All - I have recently purchased a 2006 DAX Cobra with the camber compensating suspension set up. Does anybody have any advice as to a fast road set up in terms of camber, toe in etc.

I have tried to contact DJ Sprortscars however they haven't appeared to have mastered the art of calling someone back...

Any help much appreciated as I am new to this game!

Cheers

Jean-Pierre

Hi JP, and welcome to the forum.
Dax themselves have recently started frequenting these pages a bit more often so you may get a response from them on here.
Or possibly from "Garyjetrike" who has associations with Dax too.

the settings are all in the build manual. If you have one, you'll find them at the rear of the manual. If not then someone on here should be able to help out. Sorry but my manual went with the car when it was sold.

Build manual settings are:

Front: 15' (minutes) toe in, 45' negative camber
Rear: Zero toe, camber/caster non adjustable

I'm not sure I'd deviate far from that even for 'fast road' given the way the camber compensating front end works with the DeDion rear end given the back end will always target 0ยบ camber (albeit it will change if the suspension is pitched by a bump/pothole)..

There are more detailed steps in the build manual for setting the front end up with regard to how you adjust the CC pushrods etc, but I'm not sure Dax would necessarily be happy with me sharing their IP here like that?
