Woke up in the middle of the night last night as it was so hot and lay there wondering if I had read your . earlier post regarding the lhd blue Fulvia GTE correctly?
'Incidentally our young friend has dropped it slighly, has widened the wheels and it has negative camber front and rear, different cams (1600?) and solex 42's, so it should be quite lively.'
Forgive my stupidity but how does one alter the camber on the rear of a Fulvia unless one bends the axle of course?

I remember John Day explaining how he put negative camber on a coupe and it was exactly that - heat the centre of the rear axle. Not sure how you would get an accurate number of degrees each side but I'm sure he had it all worked out. Also I'm not sure what happens to the springs. I suppose they must have enough give to sit at a slightly different angle at the point of the axle?

No idea Chris but that's what he said and in the metal it certainly seems to have negative camber.
I'm sure if you rang Omicron where he works he'd be more than pleased to tell you what he's done. Shocked

Cheers
