We had a great day on Sunday at our local Central Florida Region SCCA Solo event. It was pretty clear that our performance alignment transformed the 2007 MINI Cooper. With a little bit more negative camber and more aggressive toe settings, the car turned in and cornered much better. We found ourselves backing off our typically high rear tire pressure for a more sedate setting close to the fronts. We typically run 45 psi in the front and 55 psi in the rear. After our first run, we backed off the rears to 45 psi and the car was a lot more manageable in offsets. We finished first and fourth on index out of 97 drivers, setting the fastest time for stock class.

I realize this is an old post, I am setting my 2007 mini S and wondered how, in stock class, you got more negative camber in front? I can see how it might be possible to get LESS negative camber in the rear to balance the car better.

Thank you! Kate
