Okay I have a question for anyone who is circle track racing a Daytona.. I have an 88 Daytona Pacifica that I'm trying to put 5 degrees of camber on the Right Front. I have the Left front cambered at 84 Degrees (redrilled the upper strut mounting holes and remounted the strut and was able to gain 6 degrees on the left front. I redrilled the right front mounting holes and tried to set the camber on the right side and for the life of me I'm only able to get it to 88 degrees.. I've even gone as far as slotting the hole in the lower mounting hole on the strut to try and gain more but to no changes are happening. I even tried putting washers on 2 of the studs to try and get it to mount at an angle when I installed the strut. What am I doing wrong?? Can anyone help? I've just about run out of Ideas.

The logic is or seems right, if you move the top in or out the camber has to change, we aren't supposed to modify it so I do most of mine at the bottom of the strut so not sure of the limits adjusting up there.

With that said be sure your wheels are still straight, or in the same position, because the wheel gains and loses camber as it turns due to the caster in the front end geometry. I also assume you are taking your measurements with the full weight on the wheels.

Just a side note we didn't run that much camber in the LF, we ran maybe 3 degrees in the LF and ended up at 6 in the RF (the tech guy looked at it and I think he was going to give us a hard time for exceeding stock adjustment but it was the last race of the year.)


The reason I have 6 degrees on the LF right now is mainly so I have more adjustment later if I need it. We are allowed to modify our right fronts to gain up to 5 degrees but who's gonna notice 6? LoL.. I run a High Banked 3/8 dirt track and over the winter they have added even more banking to our track so I'm thinking I'm gonna need as much camber in the right front as I can get. I'm just scratching my head on as to why I have done the same thing to both sides of the car and I'm getting more camber on the left than I am the right. It just boggles my mind because it seems regardless of what I do it doesn't change.
