Yes 5 degree as shown in the pics.

Patrick is a factory XRay driver, hence the reason for the new car before the general public.

On the 808 the CB and the spur does not mesh squarely, that's intentional. If you were to draw an arbitrary line from the center of the CB and the center spur you will notice that the two lines will meet smack in the middle of the chassis.
