Agree more than likely the spacers are not true. The last 4 dna cars in the garage all spacers needed milling to run true.

This is good intel, thanks

I'm trying to sort out a similar issue with my 430 Spider on an MR2 roadster. It as the DNA front steering and suspension mod kit.
I've been getting front wheel shake thru to the steering at speeds of 50mph+, last time I felt anything like that was with a kitcar in the 80's (Jago jeep). The wheels have been balanced 3 times in the last year (by each owner), one was the roadforce wheel balance (which simulates road pressure against the tyre on the machine). My original hunch was wheels not balanced. Wheel bearings are fine.

All my bushes and ball joints seem good (only done 500 miles since last MOT). However my car has been sitting on these new looking tyres for 5 years, and not driven, so they will have ovality/flat spots. The more I drive the car now, the less I feel the front shaking, so it could be flat spots.

I'm changing the rubber bushes to Polyurethane, but I doubt its that. A steering damper bolted to the rack with U bolts would help a bit. I'm getting oversteer too, and the steering doesnt centrallise as one would expect, when turning and steering straight.

I wonder if any other DNA 430 Spider owners have similar issue. Must be fixable. Geometry or a design issue is a concern.

Brian: DNA 4Thirty spider (California Azzurro blue, or metalling blue to you)

I plan to join you guys at Leicester Forest East Services M1, in my 430 Spider, I'll be with Mike in his Metallic Cherry Nemisis. Just need to work out when the convoy is expected there, roughly. Watching the weather, and getting a few more jobs dfone before then.

Love the workmanship you've put into this car, particularly the bits you cant see (ie underneath), need to give my 430 Spider that treatment.
Will investigate front and rear crossbrace like you have, seems to need something to increase the stability.

Can you tell me about those great seats, whats the story?

Lee, will you be at Stoneleigh in a couple of weeks with the car?

Thanks in advance

I bought some fancy brake disc clocks and modified them on my last car, the F355 replica. Meaty thickness too. Enjoyed playing with them. Have ordered a set of the lovely Carbon look ones for my 360 now.

I'm seeking a set of 4, without brackets and calipers. If anyone has some collecting dust, that they want to sell.

I've sent an email to DNA, the other day, waiting for a response (not sure if they sell these separately).



is this one still for sale??
