That's a good idea right there.
A couple of sets of pre made arms to snap on for quick castor adjust.

Cambered knuckles? Howz that work?

Yeah forgot about that camber plate

The knuckles could be drilled out so that the king pins are set to a specific angle .5,1.0,1.5,2.0 and so fourth.

If I'm correct the washers under the ball connectors? It looks like they removed the spacers on the underside of the camber plate. The spacers are to compensate for the loss of too much camber.

I would think wings have more of an effect on a lighter car (e.g. f1) than a heavier car (tc) assuming they are running at same speeds.
