2004 cobra R




Try this

Caster 6 deg
Camber -1 deg
toe 1/16"

Rear

Camber = as much as you can dial in
toe = 1/16"


particularly non-stock 99 Cobra w/brand C motor...

That's not near enough camber if you're taking it on a road course. Try -2.0 degrees or more. The outside edges of your tires will thank you.

Mmm, yeah, I would suggest -3* if you can get it. BTW, what the hell is a 2004 Cobra R? Is it just a 2004 Cobra with Type R emblems?

lol sorry guys I don't actually own one, I am trying to set mine up on this game called Forza Motorsport and can't get it to turn very well.... what's funny is that your advise is working pretty well so I guess the game is pretty realistic...

lol sorry about that... I usually just drag race my 92 Gt and know nothing about setting up for road racing so this is pretty informative if I should later want to pursue that route.
