Default camber

i have left the factory camber settings on my rs4 3 since i had it. they have it way to negative apparently since all my tires are worn only on the inside. is there any settings on the stock holes that will end up giving you neutral camber? if there arent, i was think of cutting my turnbuckles in half and drilling holes into the so i can put threaded rod in. anyone ever do this? i know it sounds cheesy, but i just wanted to try it until i buy adjustable ones.

wahturi, that type of wear can also be caused by too soft of inserts in the tire. I don't see why you couldn't make your own turnbuckles, but I think that HPI offers a turnbuckle set that is pretty inexpensive. My 2 cents,

Default Camber adjustment


As "JBrake" said: "that type of wear can also be caused by too soft of inserts in the tire."
The kit inserts are way too soft for racing. Buy some "molded" inserts with your next set of tires.
The HPI Camber link kit as around $15 I think.
