That's still on the table too.

Anyone got a recommendation for a custom alignment? I want to add some negative camber up front. I called MAP but they told me they don't (even though it says they do on their website).

West suburbs (Golden Valley): http://thealignmentguy.com/ He's used by so many of the mnautox guys. Consider bringing your own crash bolts if you're considering street class. I think I'll be getting mine done there.

Definitely email him. Not so attentive to voicemail.

He does corner balancing as well.

He says he won't do it he doesn't support aesthetic alignment which I understand. Any other suggestions?

I was honest with him. I don't want camber for increased performance, I want slight camber to tuck the tops of the wheels in a little bit. He told me he doesn't do that kind of work and that I should go to a custom/show car shop. That's fine, if he doesn't want my money then I'll give it to someone else.

Basically went down how @JohnJuan said, lmao.

He may be good at what he does but I really don't get why people continue to deal with him. I've spent a fair amount of money not using him for tire changes out of principal.

May I ask who you use? I'm thinking of having mine aligned for autocross this year.

My answer won't be very satisfying, but I do my own alignment. At this point I can do it myself faster than driving to, and waiting for, someone else to do it. I'm sure there are other shops that can perform alignments. Orr? autoedge?

off topic but are there any chance we will have a FRS/BRZ meet or gathering this year... it seems every other region has one. A cruise would be nice.
