Camber Help?

Hi how should the camber be set on the front and back wheels. After building my MR4 my front wheels are facing inwards and front wheels are sitting straight.

Please help in what the different settings do and what u reccomend.

Thanks

Start around 1 to 1.5 degrees of camber and then work for even tyre wear. The wheels facing inwards is called toe-in, it increase stability at high speed.

Cheers.

doublest,

The Xray site has an excelent setup guide that explains camber, castor, toe-in, etc...

http://www.teamxray.com/teamxray/pro...&kategoria=253

If you can't afford a setup station like from Hudy or Integy, RPM offers some inexpensive camber and toe-in gauges. Of course, you can always try to eyeball it....
