You change the arm length which changes the amount of camber gain. A short arm will give more camber gain and a long arm less.
More camber gain will give a bigger increase in camber for the same amount of wheel travel.
Generally speaking you want more camber gain on a tight, technical track and less on a big, open fast track.

Thank you very much for the explanation.

The advised retail price in Europe is €249, a complete C01 kit costs €590.
If you know the C01 kit price in $ you can estimate the upgrade kit price in $.

Good choice, Les. We have 5 Capricorns at Brendale now, so you'll have plenty of support when you get back to Brissie. The MTX4s still outnumber us in the club; but I put it down to misguided drivers, and we'll just have to make them realise how wrong they are.

When are you coming back?

Kindest regards,
Lars.

Thumbs up Rear camber change

The rear camber change system on the Co2 is be a welcome idea for a dummy like me. No more wasting half my life trying to figure out which way to turn the dumb turnbuckles. Shame that I'll still have to waste the other half of my life trying to figure out which way to turn them for toe changes.

Kindest regards,
Dumb Lars.

If you want terrible understeer all the time go with an MTX-5, if you want balanced handling get a LAB-C01 or C02.

I'm comfortable being "price gouged" to get in early, and I'll most certainly "break out" my wallet in order to. My own opinion for what it's worth is that Patrizio is supporting his team with the offer to get in early.

Kindest regards,
Lars the big spender.
