Didnt realise Rick made third, still I recal his Lazer from the Reedy event and his Ujs were stunning. If only they made silver like his it would have been ace. Also dont forget there a video of him kicking Masamis but when he had the YZ10 with his nicely handling ZXR.

Iso, your crazy on the front mate, the car will be awful but I suppose you can try it, that is if your talking of 3 degree outwards rather than up or down?

I did a lot of testing in the early 90's to better the overall performance and found the front didnt really need much changing other than the wide front and more castor plus the ZX steering lonkage. The back however was a different affair. I tried reversing wishbones, front wishbones, many hubs, toe in, out etc etc and found the toe in or out on the rear was good, narrower rear hubs (fractional) from the Ultima RB type R (I had most probably the only one in the UK) gave significant options to ride height and made the rear end more responsive due to the narrower width of the car, shock towers and angle of the shocks as well as tie rod adjustment angles and roll bars. I also did try lower pivot blocks on the front and rear and also preferred it on the lower original setting, but I did also try upside down on occassion as this gave a change on some tracks.

If you want an angle sideways just put toe out on the front

Nope, still prefer to the wheel, as you get more feel. Iso no pun needed here

So those drawings i did were for the front as thats what i thought you wanted. Still 3 on the back should be fine.

yeah i wanted the bracket for the front since i broke the plastic LA-30 mount.

So i was glad that you gave me the drawing on the front bracket and i have sent it to fibre-lyte to have it made.

But when i was looking on their site i just whised that i had an 3 degree bracket in the rear. WSo thats why i asked you about it.

So what shall be the distance between the two holes so that its 3 degree instead of 2degree ???

Unsure but you have a zxs and the rears are various degrees so should give you an idea
