    Default Fuego rear beam bending

    I know that some have experienced problems with the Rear wheels on a Fuego going out of alignment due to the beam/stub bending.

    Having not experienced it myself, could someone confirm whether the culprit is the stub axle moving in the beam or the entire axle bending?

    I am looking into modifying the rear axle to give a little negative camber (just enough to allow for tyre deformation under corner load) and to drop the rear roll center by 20mm.

    Just an experiment really to see if I can settle the rear down a bit in transition.

    Yes, your dscription is correct.
    I have only bent the beam in a colision, but have re located the stubs doing handbrake turns on a wet skid pan.
    Hooter is probably the guy to talk to, as he has experience in the mod.

    So it was the stub axle moving within the housing?
