    Front and rear end set ups

    For those of you with Rover V8 power and Jag suspension in your Cobras, what have you set the front and rear suspension geometry at (toe in, caster and camber) and how does it drive?

    Thing is, different manufacturers' chassis can have the engine and box mounted farther forward or rearward, which would potentially change the settings you request. I would like to know the settings for a Rover V8 powered Dax...

    Hi Bannon. 1993 Dax build manual says:
    Front track 1/16" toe-in
    Front castor Max possible but equal each side. ie if you get 3o on side and only 2o the other set both sides at 2o.
    Front camber. 7/8o +/- 1/8o
    Reartrack 0 to 1/16" toe-in.
    Rear camber 1o negative.

    As an example of course........

    Thanks for that, Slogger. Very useful - I'll keep that for future reference.
