Hi All, Anyone out there could help? Looking for Front Castor and Camber angles for E36 Compact rally car, using Adjustable top mounts. Heard that camber should be around 1 degree negative? any opinions?

Thanks in advance :D

E36 Coupe. I use about 3 deg front and 2 deg rear on tarmac. About 1 degree each in the trees.
Feels OK, not much understeer issue.
The local BMW circuit race guys have what looks like about 5 degrees at each end!!!

Cheers, I take it your talking about negative Camber? Any idea on the Caster angle?

Cheers

For gravel the factory sport set up is perfect and is exactly the same as a mk2 escort gravel set up 3 degrees castor and 1.5 to 1.7 camber with a touch of toe in

Yes, negative camber.
I have E36 M3 top mounts swapped left to right and offset lower arm rear bushes which alter the castor.
I dont know how much they alter it though.
