+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 ....

So haven't posted for a while but a few decisions have been made to sort the car out.

Firstly I am going to have pull the engine. The bottom end is not balanced very well as the dickhead in US didn't send the balancer and flexplate with the short block. I've been living with it since it has been on the road but it is getting worst so I have to bite the bullit. It is coming out next weekend.

Now that the 3.9 gears are installed and the 2.75's are gone the car takes off like a rocket and no longer drive like a limo as Boofhead stated. This is great but with the C4 I am sitting at huge rpm at even 90k's so I need more gears. After much conversation, mainly with my self (see signature) I have decide to go Gear Vendors. Why? Well three main reasons. My C4 seems to be a gooden. The cost is no more than putting in an AOD when you add it all up. Lastly the install is easier with only shortening the tail shaft needed. I think the AOD/AODE is a great option but horses for courses I think and the GV suits me and my car more. Let's hope I like it as it ain't cheap.

After that I am hoping the car drives like a dream and I can move onto buttoning up the interior and some wiring.

Oh and I through some strips on the car for a bit of fun as I hade some left over wrap. Not sure on the look but it was fun to do. One thing I do like though is the blackened out grill to match the Matt black surround.

Are you just (re)balancing everything and bolting it back together or making changes?

Just rebalancing at this stage. It is only 1500miles old and has heaps of power as Boof help me build it with all his recommended goodies, so no rebuild hopefully unless there is something more sinister found. Hope not.
