What do people think of the above, I have a set that I am debating putting on, although the car is all together and working fine is there any major positives to putting them on for a road car?

well you can use them to correct any geometry settings. but as with anything adjustable you do need to know what you want from it and what settings you will need to give you that so when you ask the guys who will set it up you get want you want. or they may just go by the book.

As above, but I would get the adjustable bottom arms as well with the tie rods. Just done mine because the camber and caster were not right on the front.

I would not waste your time/money with the minisport rear camber ones!
They are dangerous and if come loose like mine had a tendency too make it rather sketchy. It was why I had an off at Snetterton. I have fixed ones now. I would probably buy KAD only in future. Or do the welded washer like historic racers can do.

Okay thanks for that advise I’m not sure where I bought mine from as it was a while ago but I don’t think I’m going to bother with the rear as that seems to be setup just fine anyway

I have the mini sport kit, on a road car but we put some more Welds to try and strengthen them
