That depens on the wear of the tire, when its a flat wear than its ok.
Me my self use about 3 degrees of camber on one site because of the high speed sweeps on that side.

A Friend and me did some training last week.
Finaly it went well for him, and we discovered that his tyre choice was wrong.

Seriously if you are completly new to pancar (and it seems you are) then i would not start with a 3.5t. A 13.5t or 10.5t and 2s is more then enough then. You will not be too happy trust me. It doesn't mean that dedicated pro10 modified cars can't handle a 3.5t as i know they can but your setup and driving skills aren't up to the task of handling that car. A pancar can go as fast as a driver can handle.

anyway... set 1.5-2 degree camber both wheels. After driving look how the tires wear. As a guide, when the tires wear cone shape then adjust camber accordingly so the wheels wear flat. Usually one side needs more camber then the other side. That is ok as long as both sides wear flat. Before driving tweek the car with the coin trick so the pressure on both front wheels are the same.

Set ride height to at least 6mm both front and back and cut off the exces bodypost

Good luck, i think you will need it.

For the coin trick, don't use any Euro coins. It is too unstable at the moment

I use two coins of 1 (chinese) yuan myself

Default Currency jokes aside...Forget the coins.

Just find the front center of the car (look for small balancing hole in chassis) and use an Xacto knife at that point to pickup the front end to check for tweek. See which front tire comes off of the setup board or flat surface first and adjust tweek screws at rear of the car accordingly.

Rarely got any consistency in the results from using coins myself.

Use 16 each of the 3/32" (2.4mm) diff balls. If running outdoors, you might want to try the 12 ball Kimbrough spur gears that have an optional dust cover for each side of the gear. I typically use an 88t 64 pitch diff gears for all situations using up to 10.5T motors.

The 1/12th scale king pins and springs are for carpet racing.

And what country is that?
