Okay - my mind is really spinning now...
Cross pollinating forums here for a second, and I might add - I'm aware of the Lancia Forums - I just haven't really gotten the hang of them - this forum is much more active so I prefer it.

As always, Huib has provided excellent advice. The only thing I would add is that I prefer to run the toe closer to parallel - say 0.5mm out, or even zero - i.e. parallel. Whilst this makes the car a little more "nervous" as Mr Van Wernink would say, I like the sharpness of response that it provides.
Best of luck
This whole toe in thing had also crossed my mind. The above description kinda fits the cars handling at present. The car is extremely
Would the increase toe-in of 1-3 mm tilt the tops of the front wheels inwards? Ed's post says "at the front of the rim than the back" - not sure I follow. I know the Fanalones have the front tires tilted inwards at the top (does that make sense? - it's still early...
) and I was thinking a less drastic set up might help the tires clear the fenders.
I've also considered rolling the fenders - don't know who to go to for that operation!
Once upon a time - the when I believe the car may have seen track time - it was built as to look like an HF (though no engine mods to my knowledge - cam cover bolts still have traces of blue or yellow on them). It had wheel arches, HF seats, different carbs (Webers, I believe), sport steering wheel, and the gold colored HF styled wheels (Campys I believe as well). So it's possible the set up was monkeyed with and not reversed as the car was returned to it's S1 livery.
I'm clearly typing as I think now...
Anyhow - Shaun and I plan on car-swapping the next time we both have our cars together to compare and contrast setups.
Okay back to work - thanks everyone!
