     TRIUMPH CASTOR COMPENSATORS

The camber compensator greatly reduces this "wheel-tuck" tendency.  It is a rather simple operation, but very effective.  In fact it is more effective than the swing spring modification on the later Spitfires, because it accomplishes the task without having to reduce roll stiffness.  The new camber compensator which is now available,  is based on the original design with a few minor modifications to reduce assembly costs.  Also, link hardware includes Polyurethane bushings, where the originals were rubber  At US$195 it is less expensive to add a camber compensator than to upgrade to a swing spring..

The easily installed kit is, according to Kas Kastner, Head of Competition Dept at Triumph is......

"One of the best suspension modifications you can have on a Triumph Spitfire".

The competition department headed by R. W. (Kas) Kastner recognized very early in Spitfire production the importance of eliminating the wheel tuck problem in competition.  So a camber compensator was designed to counteract this problem.  The accessory (competition part number V 170) consists of three mounting brackets a leaf spring and attaching hardware.  The center bracket is mounted to the bottom 3 differential bolts.

     TRIUMPH GT6 SHOCK MOUNTS

On the GT6's with Rotoflex suspension the shock mounts are normally welded onto the inside of the wheel wells.  While this is satisfactory for most street purposes, the shock mounts are not really strong enough for racing.  Furthermore, the stock mounts restrict the size of tire that can be used, because extremely wide tires will rub against the shock absorber.

 Two different brackets have been designed to solve such problems.  The first is a "Race Only" bracket that requires some cutting of the inside bodywork in order to fit the body over the bracket.  The other is a more modest design that still attaches to the frame but does not require as much cutting and ends up being in approximately the same place as the stock bracket.  But because it does not attach to the fender-well, it is much stronger.  The very bottom of the inside fender-well requires trimming so that it fits over the "street" bracket.  This modification is not outwardly visible and does not interfere with the inside of the trunk area.   GT6's need to have the old bracket and reinforcement plate removed for clearance.
