2005 Lotus Elise (Chrome Orange)
I have been reading threads on recommended alignment specifications for the Elise/Exige platform and I am left wondering how the community is measuring their toe. Toe is an angle of measurement (ie. degrees or minutes) and providing a "linear toe" specification without reference to the method of measurement means nothing. If I measure 1mm toe on a 24" toe plate you will have a completely different toe measurement than if I am measuring 1mm of toe off the 17" wheel rim (ie. string method). Heck even 1mm across a 16" wheel is more toe than 1mm accross a 17" wheel, though the difference is insignificant. So basically when people offer up "linear toe" specs what is the assumption?
