    Great little website. Pity about the front bumper - it makes the car look rather silly

    "Adding camber to the front helped with tire wear. We took a hydraulic ram and attached it to two bolts on the strut towers and just compressed the front strut towers about an inch on each side, then attached a strut tower brace. We got -1.5 degrees on each side, but it’s not adjustable. I wouldn’t recommend doing that."

    Love it.

    You can learn a lot on Pug suspension on "youtube", watch how to shorten the 205 wheelbase:- "I wouldn't recommend doing that." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtoLJauXSPM

    But did you see the ultimate gymkhana car by the same guys? Makes hydraulic camber adjustment look ordinary: DuoClio testdrive - YouTube

    It seems to be particularly good in the dirt from 3:00...
