CAMBER ADJUSTMENTS? anyone know of knuckles?

does anyone know of high quality delrin knuckles that would offer a -1deg camber? this would really help my right side tire wear, but i will also have to have a 0 deg for the left, are there camber sets?

i get about 1 deg of tire wear (camber) on the outside tire (right side) and when it wears to that angle is when my car seems to handle the best, i was thinking if i put a o deg camber knuckle on the left (for the sake of matching kingpin slop) and a -1 deg on the right, i will handle alot better with new tires and it will take them alot longer to wear since they will wear evenly. so i need to find derlin, or aluminum camber adjusted knuckes, in 0 and 1 deg, i may even try 2 and see how that goes

Setup:

Currently Mr-02 RML

Eagle ball diff
Kyosho carbon soft H plate
CP bearings
FERR F50 wheel set (shattered at this time, aluminums in today)
MR-01 green spring in front right, MR-01 red in front left
15 deg radials in rear
30 deg lo-pro in front
Kyosho Oil damper
X-speed motor with 8t

p.s. this bar really helped with tire wear...but i had to go up to a hard spring to cut out some bit the tire was getting....in other words it went into a oversteer condition.....and i adjusted with harder springs to bring it bach to a happy medium...

then you have to do both sides, and looking at the car, i dont quite see where it goes, do you have to cut the factory kingpin arms? i wish there were knuckles so i can do the 2 sides diff.

those are 1 deg whatever gpm knuckles. toe in/toe out is done with tie bars, not knuckles.

unless your picky about color i would get k. alloy stuff as it's clearly higher quality but doens't offer the color range of gpm

Knuckles are for the camber.
Tie bars are for toe in/toe out.
Tower bars depending which one you get:
1) 0* camber
2) 1.5* camber and 0.5* caster

I believe they should work with the MR-015 chassis, because the steering set up is the same as the MR02.
