    Default Is there a Fast Road setup for the Vectra

    As above!

    After spending a brief but memorable (not in a good way) owning a Civic, one of the best ways to improve the handling was to change the tracking to what was known as a Fast Road Setup.

    I had never come accross this before, but after doing dome research it appears to be fairly common amongst all makes.

    What I dont know is if it only helps with smaller cars?

    So can anyone shed any light on this for the Vectra?

    Ta as always

    as far as im aware no.
    but tuners such as thorney or courtney may be a better bet.

    my best guess for the vectra would be just a
    normal alignment (maybe some very slight negitive camber)
    slightly lower psi in the front tyres (dependant on profile) with a higher pressure to the rear.
    softer front tyre to rear

    the vectra being really nose heavy will be difficult to sort properly without, very low pro sticky tyres, LSD and some Varient 3 style coilovers.

    I think they toe them in slightly, so the outer tyre is already biting as you put weight on it. Although with it being a FWD car they naturally toe them out very slightly so as you apply drive the wheels correct themselves. They could also be talking about camber settings, but again on a FWD car you want as much contact with the road surface as possible.
