  • R888's and camber adjustments

    Right, since ive got some Toyo R888's and 2nd set of Revo's on the car for future track days i had some plans and problems.
    plans are, track days and daily driver but a focused track car!
    problems, only get 225/40/18 tyres to fit without scrubbing and fouling everything

    last week i flare the rear drivers arch a further 3 to 4mm and cured the scrubbing. i had previously flared the fronts earlier in the year so no problems there!

    so todays job was, turn my brakes round as they had been fitted upside down and wearing pads at a severe angle due to the small piston being at the bottom rather than the top!!

    then, after seeing another car with plenty of front camber and stuck to the road like poo to a blancket I wanted to dial in some more front camber. it had a small amount due to springs but i wanted more.

    here are the results






    i wouldnt recomend this setup for road use as it will cause excessive wear on tyres but it slips and slides all over the road with the slightest bit of damp, but get to the twisty stuff and its amazing, cant believe the difference!!

    this wil be done for the day at the track only and wont be running it like this every day

                there not too bad but you have to get quite a bit of heat into them, hard on a public road but thats if you want to push it a bit. if your just driving about normally, they are just as good as anyother tyre in my opinion.

                just avoid standing water!!!


                i wasnt a fan of the T1r's, split on the side walls and egged really bad but they were ok in the wet

                  888's are fine in the rain as long as you spin them up to get the heat in, but as Craig said not wise on the highways.
                  Looking good Craig, but it needs a dam good clean lol

                          genuine GM product, they are the optional line pack 2 bumper upgrade for lesser models, essentially a VXR bumper but different fog surrounds. your dealer should be able to find them for you as i dont have a part number!!
