mikelr Rear toe is on the + side which will give you a loose feeling posterior. I don't autocross my Exige but on a road course I run anywhere from 1.5mm - 2.5mm of toe in on each side out back. Front should be fine, zero toe tends to make the steering light on straights, a little toe in tightens things up nice (.5mm per side).

glagola1 Front toe looks fine. Rear toe is a really powerful tool for tuning chassis balance. I'm in experience, it's a tool as powerful as 100# of spring rate. I for one prefer a TON of rear toe in since I like to trail brake deep. If you find the car is easy to spin out, increase rear toe-in. If it's not rotating, decrease toe-in. I doubt you'll find your self thinking the car is too tight with those settings.

spitfun Yes,he supposedly had someone in the drivers seat and I had a full tank of gas. Looks like my toe front and rear may need to be tweaked by my calculations-I'll drive it at the first autocross next weekend and try it out. Rich

jds62f Were these readings with you in the car, or your equivalent weight?

I just got my car back from the alignment shop. What do you guys think and can anybody tell me the toe for front and rear in inches-that seems to be the way most people refer to it. The camber in front was with all the shims out (including the ABS shim) AND the milled steering arms installed. Thanks Rich
