Good evening every body,

Who knows the caster angle, the wheel camber and the wheel toe-in for a DB18 please ?

Kind regards,

Thank you Graham. I found the wheel toe-in but nothing on the casper angle nor on the wheel camber... I suppose that it means that the wheel camber is neutral and that the casper angle is 0

Anyway, thank you very much.

If it's not to late Julian, there was a good post by clevitt on 27 Oct 2016 about setting camber angle which I found very helpful and made a big difference to my steering. Sorry I don't know how to post a direct link to a previous post. If you search by member you will see it.

Hello,

Many months ago, I wrote that I found on the DB18 website the wheel toe-in value but it's not the case anymore and as I'm a stupid guy, I didn't note it !!

May anyone help... ?

Julian

PS : according to the forum, the camber angle for a DB18 is between +1° and +1,5°. Right ?
