A full geomtry check/setup can dramatically change the handling characteristics of your Scoob

The Prodrive settings in particular change the standard Scoob Toe-In and Camer degrees and do make the car more positive when entering and exiting corners etc

Always worth getting it checked and adjusted Powerstation in Cheltenham are the daddies for this in the South but I do believe they charge over 100 for a full setup but they do a hell of a good job. If you are considering this then the Bumpsteer Modification is always a worthwhile mod too - makes the Scoob feel like its on rails 8)

Um I think Powerstation would charge about 200 for the Bumpsteer + geometry BUT money well worth spending - transforms the cars handling - dials out understeer 8)

Had a geometry set up when rear anti roll bar & solid droplinks were fitted & again when front links & anti lift kit fitted.Prodrive settings at the front are quite harsh, great turn in but greater front tyre wear.Garage uses prodrive settings but reduces front toe in by 1/2 degree, whatever that means ops:

We can get geometry done here in Newtown, Mid-Wales.

About 70 done through local rally prep shop. 8) If anyone around this area ever wants it done.

They also fit all suspension components - Anti Lift Kits, Solid Rear Drop Links, etc, etc....

They have full lazer alignment, and the guys really know their stuff!!!

Anybody knows if this also has an effect on handling on snow ? I just HATE the understeer on the icy roads.

Plus, hit the brakes to place the car better in a corner and it slides even more over its nose, despite very grippy Nokian Hakkapeliitta 4 tyres. :evil:
