The is a modern copy of my Group G Dazda X Member, A little bit of Baz at Datsport for the adjustable kit, great bit of gear, some fine tig welding by spud.

The last one reinforced and manufactured in 1985 did fine service untill some adjustability was required.

I copies some of the reinforcing from the 1980s and added a little laminating.

Zero camber, 4mm of toe in.
Toe in will influence turn in. Be prepared to adjust to suit your style of driving.
You will have to adapt to the different handling.
Be more aggressive into tight corners, brake late, get the tail out & make use of the extra traction.

Gear box is for going faster.
Throttle & brakes are for steering.
The steering wheel is for something to hang on to.

A tad more rear bake bias will help.

Fill the rear xmember & trailing arms with 2 pack expanding foam.
