I have a T1FK, how will the car react if I put the front camber link in the shorter, front bulkhead holes? Do I need to add spacers to raise the ball up level with the shock tower holes? Will this increase steering going into a turn or out of the turn?
Also matters on what tires you run up front. If you run foam with dual compounds (plaid, etc.) more camber change will expose the inside, softer compound and give you more grip.
Alternatively, changing the camber gain also impacts the roll center of that end. Generally, the shorter, more angled camber links will reduce the mid corner grip. It will also impact the rate of roll into and out of the corner.
So a shorter link may reduce the amount of middle corner grip by changing the roll center; unless you expose the softer inside donut - then you get more grip. Untill you get so much camber change you reduce the contact patch substantially. Got it?
Oh, dampers, springs, weight distribution, caster, ackermann also impact this.
So - Not only is this a driving style thing, but also a tire, and other setting thing.
Your car is a system, you need to learn how changing one setting will impact the performance. You might make it better in one area of the track, but worse in another. Ultimatly setup is a compromise to maximize grip and balance, and minimize drag and unpredictable behavior.
Best advice - get lots of practice and ask for input from other drivers at your track. I've yet to meet anyone who is not willing to help.
