What camber is best for drifting?
Rear-wheel Camber On a drift car, you want to run the rear camber as close to zero as possible. This will usually give you the best tire wear and best forward bite. If you want a little more side grip, you can run some negative camber, but usually no more than 1 degree negative should be run.
Can you adjust camber with car on ground?
Either way, you need to take weight off the struts if you want to adjust camber, but toe you can do with the car on the ground, but it is easier to do in the air. Also, with strut equipped cars, adjusting the camber will alter the toe, so do the camber first, then the toe, rinse, repeat.
How do you measure a caster and Camber?
Measuring caster and camber is easy. Attach a caster/camber gauge by threading it on the spindle or, if you’re using a magnetic type, remove the bearing dust cap and position the gauge against the hub. (Passenger-car type gauges do not have enough range for most racers, so you should use a racing one like the Longacre model shown.)
Where to Mount caster and Camber in stock car?
If you’re racing a street stock-type chassis with factory upper control arms, they probably mount behind the bracket. Adding an equal amount of thickness shims to both bolts on the right front will move the upper ball joint closer to the engine and increase negative camber. Measuring caster and camber is easy.
What’s the difference between Camber and caster tires?
This ensures good stability, helps maintain straight-ahead direction and promotes steering wheel self-centering. Camber is the inward or outward tilt of the front tires as viewed from the front. Inward tilt is negative, outward tilt is positive. Camber is used to distribute load across the entire tread.
How do you adjust the caster on a car?
Caster is adjusted similarly, except shims are removed from the front or rear to move the ball joint fore and aft. If the control arm is mounted behind the chassis bracket and you want more positive caster in the right front, remove an amount of shims (or washers) from the front control arm bolt and/or add them to the rear bolt.
