Default adjust rear camber

hi guys,
i just couldn't remember:
to increase rear camber, for the left upper arm i adjust downwards the 'collar' and for right upper arm i adjust upwards the 'collar'? or it's the other way?

it depends on how you've put things together....
But, just rotate the collar and you quickly can see if the arm gets shorter or longer.
To increase camber, the upper arm needs to be shortened...

Do you guys have a problem with the white pivot ball nuts seizing? Since the build I am about 50/50 on them getting stuck in the housings and I am using a new wrench that appears to fit tightly but it spins. I can freeze the part in my freezer for a few hours but that doesn't work as well at the track.

I personally use the glow plug wrench with the hex on one end, it has been working well for me. But also make sure that its not getting cross threaded when installing, im not doubting your mechanical abilities, its just a possibility

It puts 70 grams in the center, bottom of the car. this is the absolute best place to put weight because the car pivots around this axis side to side and lowers the COG at the same time.

Unfortunately my weak scale only goes to 2000grams so I don't know if my car is overweight or not and I am not really big on running lipo.
