If you hold the T4 in your hand and push the wheel up and down you can see the tire leaning in and out.

Now if you change the mounting location of the camber mount it will change at what point in your suspension travel the tire starts leaning in and out.

If you go to the b4/t4 forums ask on the charlie perez thread and you will get a much more detailed answer.

i shorter camber link will help the car carve through the corners, where a alonger one will make it point and shoot. in the b4, start with middle in the hub and inner in the brace.

just get the worlds setup from last year, then change to suit, its a really good base setup

I learned the other weekend that if you raise the ballstud with a ballstud washer it makes a less drastic adjustment than changing the length of the camber link...

have you read the instructions?

it states which way around each adjustment is more drastic,

i thought that the ball stud height gives a more drastic change.

I just did after reading your post...

Under the heading REAR CAMBER LINK in my B4 instruction manual it says:

"Changing the length of the camber link is considered a bigger step than adjusting the ball end height on the rear chassis brace."
