Also, in searching for parts online, I've only found KMac camber plates - I've used these before and wasn't that crazy about them. I switched to Ground Control.
This is my first FWD car. Do folks who autox or track use camber plates or other means to get negative camber? Or am I chasing the wrong thing here - maybe FWD cars don't want it? I'll post a similar post to the Autox-Track forum, but this forum seems to get more readers.
Yes, the MS3
is definitely a "front-camber-challenged" car...
There aren't really that many options on the table for adding negative camber. The K-mac plates are probably the best option for stock hardware, but won't work with coilover setups without having some adapter plates made...
I think SPC might make some plates as well, but if they're anything like the plates that they make for the Ford Focus I'd stay away from them... They're a fixed design that also happen to cause binding and premature top-hat bearing failure...
