I did a lot of research when completing the alignment on my car. Goal was that it had to be streetable and not too twitchy but have an aggressive turn in when going into corners. Here is what I ended up with and am currently running:

 

1/16" Front Toe in 

1/4" rear toe in -- important for off throttle stability!

3 deg caster

2.5 deg neg front camber

2 deg neg rear camber

 

To me Dean's specs are very mild and the 510 responds well to more caster and camber.

They are mild but when your driving 6k miles I'm sure it's better to be on the easier none twitchy side of a long long drive.

FWIW, these are almost my exact specs (I run usually 2.5-3 degrees camber on the rear) on every 510 I've built. And yes, high speed turn in is lovely.  :thumbup:


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Car is back home!!!
Did some fixing up to get her ready for spring.

Resealed the pan, think that's where my oil leak was coming from. I'll find out tomorrow if she's fixed after a nice drive to work. Hopefully no drips when I get back to her in the lot.

Install a VW mki front spoiler. Think it cleaned up the front a little. :).

So,  yesterday was sunny and beautiful, over 60 degrees and had my first drive of the year. Ran her through the gears pretty good, (had 3 offers to sells her lol) than came home and checked my sealant job, spotless!  No more cardboard necessary under her spot.   Miss driving her! Now it's 30 and snowing with more snow in the next week or so, spring can't get here fast enough!

Just an update that she's been my main ride this entire spring/summer and has been an absolute blast! Thinking of researching something like vintage air? Someone's had to have installed one. Make for a good fall project
