rear camber adjustment

Recommended Posts

Hi guys just wondering how much adjustment on the rear the s15 has for camber as i want to wind it back to about 1 degree as it currently has 2.5

 

Any other info on camber adjustment on the rear of these cars would be great.

 

Regards

raise the subframe hard against the body is a good start,

 

next you would be looking at either offset bushes for the camber and toe arms.

or full replacement arms with turnbuckle adjustment

 

the standard adjustment is sweet fark all

yeh stock adjustment is approx 1/2 degree per side total. raising the subframe wont increase rear end grip, i found -1.5 rear camber to be best on my car but it depends how you drive and what other modifications you have. you will need after market rear camber arms to get that kind of setting, but i didnt need toe arms (hicas rear end has epic toe adjustment).

By raising the subframe? You don't increase the contact patch of the tyre on the road by raising the subframe. I wasn't talking about geometry changes etc just the simple angle of the wheel to the road.

you do actually, but it depends if you are going from locking collars to solids, or stock to solids.

 

superpro urethane locking bushes to pbm solids.

 

went from -1 degree, to -.6 of a degree.

Blingy, raising the subframe on a lowered car will reduce the camber, but it depends how the car is already. I was being more general about camber arms and tyre contact. I though u were more referring the to fact solid bushes help with traction. Least everyone can agree less camber is better for grip, just don't run 0 camber on the rear then you start going backwards...

How so. There's a few fast drift cars kicking around running 0.5 pos camber on the rear. Tyre wear dead even

The less the power you have, the less grip you want

hence people run more camber to reduce the grip

i guess people just balance the amount of camber depending on the power they have

every car then has different settings

horrible way to go about things

Of course its not a rule, but more camber (less contact patch) does help with sliding a lesser powered car.

Its not a necessity

more camber on rear = less straight line grip

more camber on rear = MORE mid corner grip

 

results may vary depending on cars. they dont put -3 camber on the back of stock mercs/bmw's/ etc for less grip.....

Real camera adjustment and all possible time are carved out for the role of the sciences. Parts of the novoresume are introduced for the mid of the classics.
