Very good observation!

A third friend of mine drove my car (not the other two that also own 1Ms) recently drove my car after the camber plates and felt it was too much grip at the front and said it was making the car tend to oversteer.

I don't recall it being BAD.. but I do recall noting for a few events that I needed to slow my hands down when dialing in steering since the car does turn in so much better with the camber plates. I never felt that it made the handling worse.... and as previously mentioned.. when two other owners tell you how much better your car is than theirs (and they own the SAME CAR)... well then I would say it's well worth the trade off in my opinion.
