The good news is that this can be easily alleviated with a set of camber plates. I highly recommend Vorshlag. I tried the Ground Control plates and they were garbage. They actually broke. With camber plates and stock suspension you will see something approaching -2.3 to -2.7 camber.

What Blue said. On my car -.2.8 was the max at the front. HOW is the car with camber plates ?

I have two friends that drove my 1M (completely stock save Arc-8s with Hankoook RS-3 plus camber plates) and they both said that my car is AWESOME. They also said my car is WAY faster than their car on track..

The catch....? what is their car you ask? They both own and drive a 1M.
