Got someone to custom make a pair of pillowball mount for my E30...

Now it can really attack the corners. no more understeer problem when attacking corners and roundabout.

ride is a tad bit harsher but tolerable even on our pot hole riddled roads.
Still testing ride quality on the holy (hole-y) roads where I am...

here's the photos.

Driving now is now engaging...
the tail is more active now as the GT radial tyres I'm using has a soft sidewall so there's a bit more tyre flex...
Eventhough the sidewall is soft but the grip is above average... So i'm learning a new driving style...

The rear will lean as i turn the steering and then it grips, so at the corners, I'll turn to lean the rear to point the car to the apex and then power out... Something like rally driving but not as dramatic.

And with more -ve camber, can brake later into corners and braking in corners is oso improved (under emergency situation) as the contact patch is bigger on the tyre at the corner that is leaning (at the corners and under braking) but got to keep the tail in check....

In short, it trains me to be a better driver, can't be doing hanky panky as it'll have more tendency to oversteer rather than understeer...

This is what I felt, if it doesn't make sense - correct me if I'm wrong...

currently running on -2.15... This setting is good enuf.... I assume tyre wear on the inner thread would be tolerable with this setting.
