Thanks to WIM at Chesham
« on: 28 November 2019, 15:04:41 »

Omega has been driving like a total pig. Iíve tried many times to adjust it myself using works substandard Hoffman alignment machine. Iíve clearly been doing something fundamentally wrong!

I canít upload the report but left camber was -0í36 and front toe was out.

Massive thanks to Tony and the team. The drive back was amazing and how it should drive!

Definitely worth the trip. And Chesham is lovely. Iíd been to them when they were at MK. So definitely overdue a visit 👍👍👍
