thought this may be of interest, got involved with the "remanufacture" of quite a successful clubmans car, golf 1800 pwr, alfa five speed g.box engine orientation north south Toyota back axle. For sometime I had been chewing over the issue of kpi of which there is a huge amount in most Mcpherson strut set ups this leading to unwanted weight transfer on turn in and camber loss on turn [this was my opinion]. Because there was a lot of design freedom we removed the kpi altogether introduced a reasonable amount of caster, result was a very good turn in, reduced understeer and a very happy owner driver.comments
