Saw this one too.. Some kind of kit fron Squat so you can adjust the camber-angle on your Z..

Looks interesting, have anyone tried this?

looks confusing :confused:

Cool. I have been looking for one if those.

Gives less understeer and a bit more room under the arches of the body shell.

The best thing ust be that you can have different camber depending on how much of your tires you have worn out.. There use to be insane grip in the beginning and then after a while the grip tends to be less...

Then it would be nice to EASY adjust this whitout changing the knuckels...

Aiya:eek: :eek:

we've all mistaken........
foolish me, never read the package..............

its CASTER, not camber :)

Well, now that THAT is settled....

Uhh, what's a caster? What's an adjustable caster? LOL.:o :D

Strider- 2002.08.07 10:28 PM

Caster is adjusting the angle of the kingpin in this case....

so it looks like / or \ from the side

These are on their way...:D

how does adjusting the caster help?

When I watch F1 races I notice that the front tires are slightly angled but how does It help?

Camber tilts the kingpins in towards each other.

Castor tilts them back. Castor gives you increasing camber has the steering moves.

Castor is better because it doesn't wear the tires unevenly, it only applies camber when you need it in the corners and not all the time.

Got my hands on the Castor Kit today, looks quite cool and High-Tech :D

What the poor description on "Japanese" says i have no clue about but iŽll see if i can get it together... :D

I got a decal sheet from Square who looks just awesome to.. Around 400 small decals of various famous brands.....

Im happy today :D

Although it should help the front grip better (oversteer), increasing the castor will slow down your steering response but it'll help for straights and high speed runs.

Maybe im very stupid but i cant get the caster-kit to fit properly, Im not satisfied with the mounting at all...

If someone can translate the text who are on the package i would be very happy.. Its written in a language i dont understand and there are no pictures in the instruction... Just a scrappy pic of it already mounted on a car

:(

PITZON 2002.08.23 01:52 PM

Maybe someone have installed this kit and can be able to post some instruction or so... ;)
