How are you measuring camber? If it's by eye with your rims & tires on, you will not get an accurate measurement.
I use my 1/10 TC Huddy setup station to get an accurate camber measurement.

What type of track were the sc pressure points developed for? Another words what would you use the pressure points over the Bar Codes?

They seem to be really good on indoor damp/slick groove conditions. We have also run them with great success on blue groove conditions with a little dust on the surface.

Here is a track where they work really well - Click Here

Thumbs up Body fit question.......................................... ......

I apologize for butting in here, but I have a question that has probably been answered already.
I've been looking at the bodies offered for the mbx6, do these bodies fit the mbx6eco?

Saturday the track really liked Pressure Points in Green, and it black grooved early. I tested blues in both PP and Bar Code and didn't work as well as the green. Most likely due to the cooler air temperatures and the dust. What's weird is that a month earlier we had another big race and Blue PP rear was the only tire I ran both days and they were stupid fast. The track got sweep and edges watered as well so there was minimal dust, which is why the PP worked better than the Bar tire.

Sunday was different. No track prep all day meant it was dusty for every round. I ran PP's in both stock buggy and truck for A1 and worked, however buggy I was faster with scrubbed green V1 Bar Codes due to the dust. Truck however I was able to stick with the same rear green PP's and just switched to scrubbed front green Bar Codes from the green PP's. This calmed the steering down some and let the truck be more neutral off on corner entry.

In dusty grooved conditions the PP is a very good tire, but given the small pin they wear quickly in the same conditions. With the dust on Sunday the Bar Code was faster than the PP. Several team drivers were playing with Gold compound as well with good results.
