yep - I may be interested in this too - always nice to have an expert look these things over before any more damage is gone.
Would be great to be given an all clear or a list of must dos.
:cheers:

I can highly recommend Julian's experience at Maidstone Sportscars. It isn't a laser platform, but it really doesn't need to be either. It's done with two bars, two springs and two pieces of string. It sounds unlikely but do please trust me on this, it's incredibly simple and unbelievably effective. We take all our DeLoreans there for his work. We typically pay 1-2 hours labour.

Tell them Martin at DeLorean Motor Cars pointed you to them.

NW Kent and your into Abbey/ Rk Tuning territory. Recognised tuners who are bound to know a thing or two about different setyps for the Skyline. I personally would rather go somewhere reputable to set up my alignment/camber/caster/toe than go to someone who only has the 'standard' book settings. Not that they would do a bad job but they might not know the 'optimum' settings for fast road/track etc

At MSC you have a bunch of bona fide racing drivers. I think they might be able to advise on how to achieve what you want from your handling.

MSC currently hold the Brands Hatch lap record in a 2 litre car. My mate Alex achieved it in a supercharged honda Exige. Academic. Anyway, they do know a thing or three about tracking/alignment.

Tell ya what, having only had mine for 5 minutes, I've noticed the inside edge of the fronts getting bald and they're (allegedly) almost new. Want me to see if they'll do us a group discount?

why not - any business would surely like to know they have a string of customers coming in.....

unless it's one of those that are so over run they would prefer you to just vanish
