The crappy alignment and lack of camber I'm guessing is the reason for so much tire squeal.

Jay,

Just curious if you have tried calling APR for advice? My GTI is bone stock, yours is set up pretty decent. APR does race their VW's, maybe they can give you some insight, then you can share with us?

So difficult to find people that actually know what they are doing. I'm telling you Robi-Spec is the MAN!! but he does things kinda on the downlow and not really a big company. Just a guy and his tools, and he travels around doing alignments for race teams and such.

In the Evo community there were a couple of good places, but for VW I walk in and they say "dont touch Euro cars" and I am like OK.

Robi Though did. I will see if I can track him down.

I have not, I doubt they would be willing to help though. I don't really have their suspension stuff just their turbo and tune. My buddy gave me the info for a driving coach that would be able to help dial the suspension in but he's a bit expensive.
