Yes and no.

We could camber those front wheels in 3.5 degrees to reduce resistance, but Brandie puts out so much power it shouldn't matter. If we are looking for a 10th like the Camaro vs Ford GT it could be the difference maker. Everything we have done suspension wise has been for maximum stability and safety. We have been very conservative and it shows in you high speed runs. Should we go after the last 10Th?

The other side of this is we use the camber plates to improve the SAI. The change in SAI improves the steering feel. It is similar to a caster increase, but better. I am searching for the right words and can't quite find them. Caster can be darty at high speeds. SAI isn't. That is as close as i can come to the right way to describe it.

The third way to look at it is you have every other cool thing under your hood you absolutely have to have these

Pedders 581050 Camaro-Dual-Bearing-Camber Plates

1.9 Degrees of Additional Negative Camber Adjustment
18mm Thick Monster Plate
Dual Bearing Configuration
Banded Thrust Bearing for Strut Rotation
Large Monoball for Strut Articulation
Fits All Brands of 5th Gen Coilovers

Pedders 5th Gen Camaro Dual Bearing Camber Plates with an 18mm Thick Main Plate are configured with a banded thrust bearing for coil rotation when turning and a large monoball for strut articulation. Pressed into the upper aluminum spring perch is a banded sealed thrust bearing. The thrust bearing replaces the OE strut bearing and delivers silky smooth operation.

A large monoball allows the strut to articulate without bind. This precision assembly delivers an additional 1.9 degrees of negative camber. Each mark on the camber plate is .25 degrees of adjustment. Combine the adjustment of Pedders Dual Bearing Camaro Camber Plates with the OE knuckle / clevis camber adjustment to achieve more than -4 of camber on demand. As a side benefit, the Steering Angle Inclination (SAI) improves as more camber was added from the plates.

IN-STOCK for IMMEDIATE SHIPMENT!

OEM Articulation



Pedders Dual Bearing Camber Plate Articulation

We have these instock.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.
