First one being the new toy in the fiestas. Some of you may have seen or heard of it but i hadnt and thought it was pretty cool lol -



Reverse camera in the mirror. Only downside is the picture is actually see through well you can see reflection behind it and causes some right confusing in your head lol.


Second was a track car from volvo to promote Eco racing, wondered if anyone could tell me what was going on with the wheels and why they are how they are if you can see in the pic (edit, looked at pics and dont think you can, but they are leaning in as if someone has cut down the middle of both axles -

Negative Camber? For... better cornering maybe?


Is this the thing you mean, where the wheel (back one on mine) does this? (Although, not as extreme)

No it is that extreme lol. And it was all four wheels, may have been a little bit more extreme than that infact!

Well, more extreme than that, then somebody probably did cut the axles Laughing Can't imagine there being any useful handling characteristics coming from having no grip on any of the wheels... Unless they were going for VIP style camber, to look totally gangsta? Laughing
