    Default Adjustable Camber Plates ???

    Where are these available from?
    I need a set for a 240Z.

    Nick.
    "TURBO" = cubic inch substitute.
    To those that know, an explanation isn't necessary.
    To those that don't, an explanation isn't possible.

    Default benefits

    Camber plates allow you to adjust the vertical angle of your tires. Positive camber is when the top of your tire lays outward and negative is when the top of the tire lays in. As a car corners, the chasis will roll to the outside. This changes the camber angle of the tires. Most performance and racing cars have between 1/2 and four degrees negative camber.

    This helps during corning to keep a greater area of the tire patch in contact with the road surface -- which helps to reduce understeer and extend tire life. It also may increase fender clearance on larger tires.
