Hi Paul, I see what you mean about the negative camber. Normally, when you reduce the weight bearing down on the rear spring you make the camber more positive, not negative as you have. Do you know...

The front end looks great, have you driven the car on a twisty road to see how it handles yet? The back end looks a bit extreme! Why did you remove a long leaf of the spring? Was the suspension...

Sorry to hear you are having a problem again. Who made them? Are they Locost or Caterham? Have you identified what is causing it, are they constantly under stress or just too flimsy? Hope you get it...
