It's more the Toe (by eye) naturally as you add or take away load the wheel tries to move one way or the other it's just probably around 70% less visible now on side with the bearing fitted. :wink3

Finally made a start on the new gearbox today since i had a day off work, been looking for a good low mileage G4BSV PG1 from another ZR160 but been unable to find one so ive decided i will use the G6BP box i have as a spare i got from a Lotus Elise S2 111S as i know its a good low mileage unit. Its the same low ratio 1st-5th gear set as the ZR160 but with the 3.9 diff rather than the 4.2 i want so im also replacing the input shaft and crown wheel to bring it to the same spec as the box already in the car. Just doing a dummy build for the moment so i can measure everything and order all the bearings, shims etc all together cant wait to test the ATB....

Just quick inform, done a trackday yesterday at Bedford again to compare the car against how it was last time. I will be making a little video of my best lap from this and last trackdays side by side for comparison I'm just waiting for Javelin to add the pictures so can made a little video but i was just over 7 seconds (best vs best) faster than before since fitting the coil overs and PCI bearings which is two corners on the track so I'm on the right path. Still a long way to go but so next things are to double the spring rates (still to soft for track) and definitely need to get the LSD in as I was getting terrible wheel spin out of corners so was having to often say in a higher gear which is probably losing me a few seconds per lap but here's a little drive by clip filmed by someone in the pits....
