Anyone got an explanation of adjustable mini suspension and how to set it up properly? In other words, explain camber, caster, toe in/out and their effects and how to set up a mini well with adjustable bottom arms, tie-rods, hi-lo's etc.

Does that make sense? I know it'll be different for every car, but I just want to know what it all means and what I should be aspiring to to get my car riding nice.

I reckon the repestive mini/morris, etc car clubs should hold regular technical days, the other car clubs ive been invovled with all have, its a great way to collect new enthusiasic members too. AND you get a great technical library for the future generations to keep the cars working as they should be.

2cents.

Does everyone still want a drum to disc how to done? (Keeping in mind sgc has already done a similar thread when he converted to 4 pots?). I could probably also cover changing bottom arms too if people wish. Let me know asap otherwise I wont do a write up.

Thanks, Nick.
