are you sure you mean caster? and not camber?

camber can be changed easily by changing the knuckles, caster isn't as easy... i've heard that there's an additional third party optional part...

if you mean camber, it basically is up to you... more camber usually means that it'll be more aggressive / responsive into turns... i've tried 2* and 3*... seems ok

hope this helps...

I've got one of those sets, but I haven't a clue how to fit, as the instructions are in Japanese. Squat make it I think..

camber angle should not exceed 4 degree. 3 would be just fine. in a real car, too much camber would reduce it's braking ability but i dont know what will happen on a miniZ
