I had my suspension set up for fast B road a couple of years ago at a place recommended on this forum. Apart from the fact that it was over an hours drive south from Leicester I cannot remember the name or place.Black may have been in the name.Can anyone help.

Wheels in motion?

The chap behind that was Tony Bones.
He has passed away. So unknown if the quality is still there.

Not tried myself. But something closer. Place in Coventry

I can vouch for Centergravity they have done every Porsche that I have had and made a big difference, Well worth it

I get my tracking done at a place I trust in gloucester but I take along the settings that wheels in motion used for fast road set up and ask them to try to get to those rather than standard settings.

If you have your old print out then take that along and ask for those.

(I am sure I heard someone say that the quality of WIM has departed with the owner sadly).

Centergravity would have been useful as they are in Coventry and I live near Leicester. They seem to specialise in Porsches and charge appropriately. They quoted me £355.I have dug out the paperwork from the last set up I had done which was at Blackboots in Cheshham who charged me £95.The guy who did it was an MR2 owner himself which was reassuring.
Trouble is they are 90 miles away.Anybody in the East Midlands got any suggestions.

I agree with this. It is always better to go with custom specs. Four wheel alignment is good for a commuter car but not for this car because the specs will be a compromise that does not favor response. Those alignment machines are so simple to use by anyone because it just points you where it is green but the tolerances are too loose. I have to dictate my specs to the operator because they only do what the machine tells them to do. 

Since toe is the only adjustment for this car I have always recommended a very simple set up which is 0 toe for the front and for the rear very slight positive toe for stability.  It will have very good turn in and will be fun to drive.
