I have the first (I think) production set of these. They are extremely well manufactured, make no noise and are FAR higher quality than the Ground Control units that failed on my car.

Order placed. Looking forward to install next week and then three day HPDE at Thunderhill in CA. Anxious to feel the diff. Any recommendations on settings? Look through other threads but wanted to see if there were other thought here.

Install new camber plates on This past Friday. So far love the added negative camber's improved turn in. Definitely no increased harshness or noise. This weekend is a 3 day HPDE at Thunderhill in CA. Anxious to feel the difference..

Only disapointment is that the pieces are so beautifully fabricated its a shame they are completely invisible after they're installed. LOL

I will be running Toyo 888's on ARC-8's 9.5"x 18" w/ 265-35-18 front & 10.5" x 18" w/ 285-30-18 rear.

The stick with the stock camber was great so I'm anxious to see how much improvement with the new setup.

Sorry I've missed this, I've been at SEMA and then had my truck stolen at an elk hunt in New Mexico on the way home.

We've been setting the front at 2.5 degrees. You can go more, but with the soft stock springs we've found that the 2.5 is appropriate and gives good tire wear.

Track sessions at Thunderhill were great. Had several sessions between my students. Understeer gone. Outside edge wear evened out. Feel and turn in excellent.

Very very happy with the transformation even with stock springs felt very controlled.

What camber values are you running on 'street' mode and 'track' mode?

For instance, check the web site of HP Autowerks. Their online shop should be listing it. If not, contact Harold from HP via this Forum.

I run -3.0. For daily use probably -2.5 is as much as you'd want to go.

Depends on the track, tire choice, suspension settings, ambient conditions and driver. All these variables factor into the ideal setting. The proper way to do it is to take measurements using a pyrometer and pressure gauge. If you're going for maximum tire life and optimal adhesion for your entire driving stint, you really do need to take the measurements.

Short of that if the outside of the tire is not wearing more quickly than the rest of the tire then your camber is sufficient. If the inside is wearing quicker than the rest of the tire you have too much camber. A good baseline to start would be -3 deg. You are going to need a camber gauge to figure out where that measurement is unless the camber plates have some type of delineation scribed onto them.

For the street around -1.5 to -2 deg is usually about right. Street driving style plays a big part in that though. I believe factory is about -1.2 (right?) so if you drive like a pussy-cat on the street then you’ll end up wearing out the insides first with too much camber.

The short answer is there is no ‘right’ answer for camber setting for street or track. Every car and every driver is slightly different. Even with all constants the same (car,driver, susp, tires, track) the variables like track and ambient temp can require camber adjustments.

I’m probably getting way too detailed for the occasional DE style setup. For most buyers it will be a set it and forget it setting for track and street driving. Even doing this will GREATLY improve your tire life on track. The ability to get way more precise is there though and it’s a fun challenge to master for those so inclined
