4 Wheel Alignment

Project Merlot was today treated to a session on EMG Motor Groups newly installed 4 Wheel Alignment equipment. A John Bean "Visualiner" which has the latest technology in imaging alignment systems. It's able to measure Castor, Camber and Toe-in and give live readings for all 3 angles.

Due to Project Merlot's lowered suspension setup I was unable to obtain Mazda's settings, so even with the alignment completed some angles still show as red. I've set a bit more negative camber than spec which suits a track based car like Project Merlot.

The new equipment is a joy to use and gives accurate, consistent results.
