You can edit the black filled fields filling out your own values. The steering angle is the toe in column and the most right column calculates the actual camber for the specific steering angle.

Note: camber increase due to pressing in the suspension has not been taken into account here. ..Might add that later but it's late and i wanna go to sleep

Ok.....was rather late yesterday evening calculating all the angles and formulas. Luckily the formulas are correct as I did a lot of testing. I made the sheet muchmore easy to understand including a graph which shows you the actual camber at a given steering angle.
It takes the SAI, the camber at zero toe (static camber) and the steering angle into account. The SAI (steering axis inclination) is bit difficult to measure but has a slightly negative effect on the camber increase while turning the wheel although it's not much as the graph clearly shows.

Have fun with it....

Kick up isn't bad by itself, nor caster. Once I feel more healthy I will write to the GT8 group about both and how you can tune them.

Default Measuring total caster

I did some measurements on the Serpent yesterday evening. The total caster measured 22 degrees on the setup tool. With the 12 degree steering knuckles would leave 10 degrees for the kickup of the suspension arms. I know the actual bend on the serpent chassis is approx 15 degrees which means the lower arms are not paralell to the chassis bended front but have a 5 degree lesser
kickup.
Conclusion: you have to measure the actual kickup of the lower arms instead of only the bend in the chassis which makes perfectly sense. I reckon this will be different for each chassis brand.
