A bump on this thread. If you were using the string method and your garage floor was less than perfect, would it add value to do the work on a set of roll off levelers? Or maybe that's even a necessity? I may just be looking for an excuse to get some now (the Trackk Rats ones seem good), with the idea of picking up scales as well when the budget permits. ;^)

Another bump. I am trying to measure my caster and my homemade turn plates are not working as hoped for. Does anyone (perhaps someone with a proper turn plate) know how many turns of the steering wheel rotates the tires 20 degrees? It must be the same on all Elises. I am estimating 1.25 or a bit more. Thanks.
