Ok guys, I'm set to get home soon and want to get a proper alignment setup for drifting. I tried searching but came up to no avail. My suspension, steering components, and rims and tires all have changed since my last one drasticly. I'm pretty slammed low too if that helps out any. I don't know how much right now as I can't measure it but I'm gonna guess 11".

My current setup is:
Tein Basics
ISC Top Hats(on order)
Big Angle modified steering knuckles
Seeltuned tie rods with spacers
Manatee Racing Pillow outer tie rods
Axis Sakura wheels(15x8 +25)
H&R 25mm wheel spacers
As far as tires go I'm in the process of buying new ones. Any suggestions on any?

I know a good deal about how to set camber, caster, and toe. I just would rather prefer to have this done professionally. I'm just looking for what settings I should tell the shop when I have it taken to get this done here in about a week. Thanks guys in advance!

don't hate it, theres a lot of good drift info on there.
when you get back home, drive a few events and adjust alignment to how you see fit.
some one will probably kill me for saying this but raise your car up.
that should help knock out some neg camber.
it'll help you grip better in the front and will probably help you feel the rear wheels a little better.

3-4 camber front.
1/16 toe out
Max castor

Rear is anything close to 1 neg. Lowered cars have issue getting less then 2 typically.
0 toe or maybe super slight toe in

Have fun and play with tire pressures as it has as much to do with the drive as alignment

Have fun kick ass!!

I only keep it low for everyday things. Just like how I'll prob change wheels for some crappy ones in case I wreck. I'm used to breaking stuff from drifting so I'd rather not want to smash up my dd rims. I just checked out the forums and you were right. I haven't checked out the site in many months so I missed the one that was made in Nov. Thanks for the heads up. I know what to do now.

Haha, I was just looking at your post on there Danny and saw these specs. Totally what I'm gonna have done man thanks! Yea I'm set on what tire pressures I like for my driving style. Hopefully I'll see you at the drift events when I get back.

Don't hate. Tits and vag are okay to talk about. You just have to get past the firing squad and you are good.
Haha, I just can't get any porn to give them out here deployed. I use the government computers mostly and even when I use my laptop the networks STILL block the good stuff. :cry2:

Can't you use some sort of proxy server thangy to get past the government firewall? That is what Brian did when he went to China so he could access Facebook for 5min. (Whoops hope they don't monitor this thread).
Damn do I EVER wish I could! They have the best blockers around. Come on, it's the military. ;)

roadsterdrift didn't always used to be that way. but it does kinda suck how you have to post tits and ass just to answer a simple question or help with a diagnostic... it can be difficult, but as for drifting a miata there is no better place to ask and search. everything has been covered on there.
