Hey rx8 racers I need some help from the guys that have already been through a few rx8 builds and know what they are talking about I need some help I know more issues will always be in the air so i will start with eccentric bushings. Ok I think I partly understand the concept of them. But im beginning to feel slow and stupid I put my kit together in about 15hours over the span of three days and I have a caliper and I cant seem to get both left and right turnbuckle arms the 85.5mm so I tried changing the initial set bushing to eccentric with hopes of getting a correct reading on my camber gauge (by the way im using the hudy set-up station) the car is not straight I can tell just by rolling it it pitches to the right alittle I have a guess its the turnbuckles so I need a better understanding of what I can do with using eccentric bushings because I think I tried every one of them and the chamber is still not perfect like one side would be off by the smallest amount its killing me because I want it to be right I wonder am I going crazy for nothing?? I set all the measurements by the book the rear is what I love seeing its perfect but the front is a nightmare what can I do?? I know this is a lot to post on a forum but I cant let this die

Hi,

I just got a reply from one of our team drivers, who recommends you to loosen the bulkhead screws from the bottom of the chassis and tighten them up again to make sure nothing is tweaked. Also you may try to turn the set-up stand to make sure that none of the shims next to the stands is askew.
