Nice choice of collors. When I painted my car obnoxious green, I went a full second a lap faster! Green is racing's best speed secret.

Just picked up a Rev 4.5 and was wondering on adjusting camber. Would I be better off shimming the arms or just cutting camber into the tires with my lathe.

If I would be better off shimming the front what do you guys use? I know one guy said paper or card stock somewhere on here. But is there anything else.

The only problem with just cutting camber into the tire would be the tire would mostlikely wear flat again due to the lack of camber. I would use a header card or thin shim to aquire the desired camber.

Mike - You and Mockerman have both said to use a shim on the outside of the front block to get the desired camber. Are you looking for 2 degrees or a little more? I noticed that the blocks are rarely equal on each side depending on how they popped out of the molds.

Thanks.

Just ordered a 4.5 from the Speedmerchant website, is there anything I should look out for while building the kit?

I'm obviously not Mike...

I usually keep a couple of different thicknesses of paper shim stock around and shim till they are even. Again, it depends on the track how much camber to add... Right now the arms that I have seem to have come out of the mold nicely and only have one thickness of standard header card on each side. You can use an RPM camber gauge to measure the angle of the pin, or you could use something square to sight against to make sure that they are negative equally. I stand my AE ride height gauge on end and sight off that. I'm probably at about 1.5 right now...
