    Dax de Dion suspension set up

    Does anyone know of a company that can set up the suspension on a de Dion?
    Seems to remember a company based around Coombe castle called track day developments (I think) but can’t find any reference to them on the web (may have gone out of business?)
    Any pointers gratefully received.

    Hi James.

    It was Track Developments in Malmesbury, but unfortunately the company was dissolved just a month ago:

    You could try Centre Gravity - I don't know if they've done a De Dion, but they've certainly done Cobras: http://www.centregravity.co.uk/

    The rear is simple to set up, just a ball-ache because it means moving or making shims to set toe, and you have to take the brake caliper off to insert or remove them .. which really means doing it with the wheels off and brake discs as a reference. The front end is only slightly complex in terms of camber .. but even then, I am pretty sure CG will get their heads around it.

    That’s the one and I thought there were some troubles brewing.

    Anyone any other contacts?
