+2 caster is to low - yes it is factory setting but not so good for modern tyres.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Im sure kerry has mentioned before (tcp instructions also state) 4deg and up is ideal for our car combos and street use. Not sure why he has reduced your castor... maybe as boof said thinking this is factory setting. First place that did mine didnt understand how to adust the suspension and did best efforts at 2.9 deg and i experienced the same issue you have with wandering at high speeds, wasnt happy. took it to my now recommended place and suggested i needed to be running around 4deg and dialed out that wandering issue.. also installed my bumpsteer kit which eliminated that aswell.

In another life I used to set falcons to 6mm toe in, .5 deg neg camber and as much neg castor as i could get (3-4 deg) without fouling on anything and often found that a little bit more castor on the left side made the car track straighter when every thing else was equal, this was when XE/ XF's were the in things so old news I know, but hopefully give you an idea of where to start.

I'll be trying to adjust my settings tomorrow at home.
Was driving back down the M4 this afternoon and hitting 110kmph was.... a little scary. On the upside I'm getting a wicked forearm pump 💪

Was an XF ever an in thing? I think the sportiest model was the "S-Pack"?

I did find an absolute pristine 302 XE ESP that the guy didn't know what it was. Thought it was a regular Giha and had $12K on it.

Ok, so a bit of poetic license was used, but no small furry animals were harmed in the making of this statement ....
