    Tracking may be OK, but what about the alignment?

    Is the car lowered and if it was did they check the camber when they did the tracking?

    Was about to say the same thing, if it's scrubbing the inside of both tyres, then it's sitting lower than the geometry is set up for (camber is out for the height). You need to get a full alignment done on a Hunter setup or similar.
