For what it is worth I solved the problem. I went from using a plastic Serpent gauge to measure the camber to a Hudy Set-up station. Hence the camber results were different. It also appears that I can increase front and rear camber more as the tires are not wearing in the center. Wear is in between the center and the front sidewall. I also took out the bottom washers on the arm (not sure if removing the washer did anything). FYI the shock tubing was a waste and did not last. The car is good now and competitive.

Hope this helps you as it made a huge difference for me. Started with 16sec laps now I'm down to low 14 with a few 13.6s
Do you have this on a setup sheet. Some is unclear. Like what rear springs and front shock mount locations. And the front upper arm and pin details I'm little unsure of.

Is this setup on a sheet anywhere. I'd love a copy. Some details are unclear.
