Apr 18, 2024 | Mustang, alignment

For a good race alignment, we took our 1965 Ford Mustang race car down to longtime friend Geoff Thompson, owner of Alignment Shop, Inc., in Ormond Beach, Florida.

His background in SCCA race car setup serves us well and, while there is not much alignment you can do on a Mustang, he managed to get close to a degree of negative camber and a bit more caster into our old Mustang.

He set the toe slightly out for better turn-in. Too much toe-out will slow the car down on the straights and make the car unstable.
