These wheel alignments are not factory standards. These are derived
from tests, professional drivers and chassie engineers.
You should always consider driver, fuel and cargo weights when
your Corvette is aligned. Please note that these specs are symmetrical.
For example, when we recommend 1/8" toe in, that indicates
1/16" on each front wheel for a total of 1/8" total
Daily Driver - These specs are designed to minimize tire
wear and dynamic forces on front end parts. Driver effort is minimum,
the car will steer very "light" and may wander or be
"darty" on road with wear ruts. If you are uncomfortable
with this feeling, toe the car in up to a maximum of 1/8"
total toe in.
Advanced Street - These specs are designed to give an
even quicker steering response with minimum tire wear. If the
car is "darty", toe the car in. By toeing in, you may
loose some turn-in qualities gained by the initial specs.
Autocross - These specs are a good baseline to start from.
The driver must take into consideration that size, compound and
condition of the tires. The chassie is affected by the valve package
in the shocks, spring rates and sway bars. The Autocross course
design and the condition of the surface will also have a bearing.
These specs do not work and are not recommended for street use
because of adverse tire wear. The car will act "nervous"
when ever changing street surface.
Track - These specs are by far just a baseline. Those
of you who race know alignment specs will change based upon weather,
track and unique setup. These specs can also change on each corner
of the car and driver to driver.
