Camber & castor, help me understand please?

Can anyone either explain what these tersm are all about or direct me to an article that can explain it all to me? I know team-orion has this covered in there F&Q section, but it just doesn't explain the benefits of messing around with these adjustments very well to me. I just don't quite understand it very well. What are the benefit af adjusting camber or castor?

If I am not mistaken, the castor basically dictates how much camber you will have during turning. Some people call it free camber, because it's available without really influencing anything else. It also depends at which point of a turn do you want more or less steering.

Default Thankyou kindly.

Thanks guys, still a bit hazey, but certainly more clear. I'm sure applied logic & my strong will toward learning to read will make it all somewhat clearer as I go on!

Thanks a lot & God bless.
