the car must be compared with the same setup, the same stiffness of the shocks and springs;

then there are those who mount michelin super sport or cup2 can not be compared with those who mount standard performance tyres uhp

like golf mk7 R;

other important thing is the angles of camber etc etc:

(all angles are centesimal degrees)
* golf mk7 r and the other vag like s3, rs3 etc. etc. have a standard lady camber who goes to get the bread
  -0.85 front angle degree and -1.30 rear angle degree;

  • a45 has -1.85 front angle degree and -2.45 rear angle degree;

  • m2 -1.50 front angle degreeand -1.85 rear angle degree,

  • focus rs has -1.50 front angle degree and -1.0 rear angle degree

  • m3 e46 csl has -1.75 front angle degreeand -1.85 rear angle degree

angle give us a lot
