Outside of them are on 'bright ideas', some may be symphony and no to church on, some may be even usefull. Thinking other strut tops, other than Everything, can give you a teens of adjustment, but this is less lp than modifying TCA.

Race-tune your handling Definitions: Understeer — Front of car heads towards outside of turn. Can be less dramatic than oversteer, so therefore easier to not notice. Oversteer — Opposite of understeer. Rear of car heads towards outside of turn. Usually dramatic therefore gets your attention more! Standard has the top of the strut towards the rear of the car. Viewing car from above, the distance from one wheel to the other, with the dimension at front, less than behind wheel centreline wheels pointing in at frontmeasured in mm. Because of this it is important to reduce understeer, although it is a balancing act, front to rear. The front is the most tortured due to the weight imbalance.

Remembering that the stop watch is the ultimate gauge.

With this in mind I jotted these notes, collected from various publications to help pinpoint things to reduce understeer: Re-drill track control Fixing strut top mk2 escort mounts in crossmember to give increased negative camber this escotr be from 6mm Fxiing and up, approx. Too much negative camber will affect the braking performance of the front tyres, but I feel this is when you use much more camber than as above. Using other strut tops, other than Esky, can give you a means of adjustment, but this is less dramatic than modifying TCA. However, these can be used to adjust castor.

Corty MKII GT strut tops have a smaller outside diameter, therefore these can be moved around in standard body strut top hole.

New holes Fixing strut top mk2 escort body inner fender will have to be drilled, for the mounting bolts K-Mac sell a 24 and 27mm sway bar with threaded ends to allow for castor adjustment. I guess a street car could have a 24 and a race car a 27mm. A cheaper way is to obtain a MK I and MK II bar they should be different diameters and cut the ends off, then make up some clamps to clamp on the extra bar below the existing one, then try out the two. Front toe in, is there to allow for flex in all the front end, escrot the bushes. Therefore a good start is to replace all the Fixung with urethane type.

The standard toe setting is 3mm in at the front. If for any reason you need to get the front a bit higher, you can do steut by Fixiing a little 'spacers' to the upper end of the shock absorber. Thickness should fscort Don't make it higher than millimeters or the screw in the shock will not be enough. The same advice goes for mk2 too. Mk2 servo's should fit Mk1 bolt-on. I think that the mk2 servo is bolted differently to the master cylinder, so you can't use the mk1 mcyl anymore. Mk2 servo's are a bit bigger, maybe more effective? Mk2 XR2 servo and master cylinder Not quite, but you can use them.

Believe me on this one. Escort 91 discs mm, vented can be used with XR2 brakes. This is usefull specially if you want to get some 'race discs' and can't find any XR2 spec ones.

The XR2 rear cylinders are 19mm in diam, and if you can't find them, you'll find satisfying 19mm cylinders from a ? If you think you need more, get Sierra 1. Both of them are fairly bolt-on, just the bolt holes need a slight modification. Engine Original A breakerless ignition can be done simply by taking the whole distributor from a Escort 1.

The ignitionmodule is included in the distributor, and only 3 wires have to be connected. One to the chassis, two to the ignitioncoil. Can't help you with the connections: Waterpump from an Escort gives much more room for the water hose and the alternator than any other model of CVH engine waterpumps. Use it, doesn't cost much and it's much better. General Lowering the engine for 20mm reduces body roll very much. Haven't done that yet, so can't tell. With a CVH engine there will be slight? The alternator will propably fit no more even as good as it does now. The other problem will be the camshaft pulley.

It will most likely touch the engine mounting on the chassis. Well, we'll see about that next spring. That be'ing the spring '04 Transmission The 2-part driveshafts from a Mk2 CVH can't be used, they are a bit different length.
