Yeah. I usually take a "close enough" approach to suspension. "Close enough" will usually get you there.
Yea good idea, probably will take me 2x longer if I tried to do it to exact numbers and I would probably be off a little anyways. Just taking a front end link off for the first time(11 years old) and the boot just shredded. Well good thing I ordered new ones last week.

The "Push Harder, Suck Less" philosophy explained:
Push Harder - Drive as close to the limit of your tires as possible.
Suck Less - Drive something resembling a proper racing line.

Not necessarily, but, I think you're getting your setup dialed in nicely. Nice fairly flat contact patches on the loaded side. Tiny bit of lift on the inside rear tire. Good stuff!

I gotta hand it off to Joe B for doing a corner balance for me. Reminds me, I need to give him props on his vendor thread.
