That takes me back. Would love to have kept JLG if I'd had the space here. Was the other one yours too?

My car had S2 pressed steel upper wishbones and 1600HF lowers. It was horrible on 6J Cromodoras, but a delight on 5.5Js.

That film was lovely Ė it reminded me of how I felt my car performed when I let my imagination stretch just a bit beyond reality. But it didnít need to stretch that far, because in truth it was very sharp, very rewarding and sounded very crisp when working hard in middle gears. Happy days,

Colin

Colin I think you may have achieved zero camber..... My comment was passed to me by an eminent Italian Fulvisti who observed I was running 5.5 J on HF suspension on my Sport. I had fitted both these choices..... I was at the time quite unhappy with the handling which should have been preety much like my 1600HF - but was not. After he gave me this insight I swapped the HF 6J wheels onto the Sport and found the handling transformed, so now both cars carry this wheel.

I didnít measure it but there was definitely some negative camber on my car Ė it was clearly evident just from looking at it, but unfortunately difficult to show in photographs. The better handling that Tim observed with 6Js, which was not my experience, may be because my all-aluminium car was significantly lighter in weight. With my car, I think it was the wider off-set of 6Js that made the ride harsh and the steering less precise. The lesser off-set of the 5.5s made it much sharper and more agreeable.
