I have just had the mo30 kit gutted to my 2003 Boxster s. it now requires four wheel geo. for ease I an getting it done at a place in derby who do laser alignment and I will get a print out.
I am best going for factory settings or is there a better set up? I run federal rsr tyres and it is a weekend/ circa 10 trackday a year car
Thankyou

def not a oem one with those tyres.

as much front camber as you can get up front a with zero toe.
Keep rear oem.

Hi,

Is it an M030 kit or a sports suspension package from Porsche at around £600 ?

I think you will find you will have to run heavy rear camber to get the rear toe settings required due to the drop in ride height.

Problem with Boxster rear suspension setup!

I have run -2.0 all round on camber and 2minutes toe in per wheel front with 10 minutes toe in per wheel for rear and it was a very good point to start from.

I also have the M030 on my 986S. The top mount slots were drilled to get a little extra front camber. Without this you will likely not be able to get more neg camber on the front than rear.

Thanks mike,
Does the toe in give it a bit of under steer though?
Will I get around 1.5' camber without modifying top mounts etc?

I couldn't quite get to that level of camber on my stock suspension car. The problem was that to get the right rear toe the rear camber was about 2 deg. After M030 the front is only 5mm lower and the rear is actually higher (tip kit). With the slot mod I can now get just over 1.5 deg front camber whilst keeping the rear at less than 1.5.

Thankyou guys
So in summary, rear stock and max possible front camber?

I am no chassis guru but isn't it the opposite?

Depends on how you like the car to feel. If you are ok with the standard set up then have more rear than front camber. If you want more rear end action then have more front camber than rear. If you set up similar to the latter then make sure you remain on the power through corners to get the front to work.

None of the above is a issue as you will only get -1 to -1.2 neg front camber any way without buying new lca.
Def go for zerofront toe though.

Not quite true. As mentioned above my top mount slots were modded and I am at just over 1.5 neg camber on the front and just under on the rear.
