the angle of inclination of the wheel to the vertical. The inclination outward
means a positive sign, a wheel inclination above inward receives a minus sign
above.
The dive angle changes with the turn, therefore the Camber angle measurement
takes place, "travel straightforward, " or with special manufacturer regulation
with " track 0 ". negative camber increases the side guiding force of the wheel
with driving along curves. A falsely adjusted camber (excessive value positively
or negatively) leads to one-sided tire wear.
In order to avoid a one-sided pulling of an axle, no larger camber difference
than max. 30 angle minutes should be available between the two wheels of this
axle.
Front wheels have usually an easily negative camber, while rear wheels are usual a clearly negative camber angle.
MGF camber , see also descriptions on Robert Bells Homepage
front | -1°00' ... 0°00' | |
rear | - 1°30' ... -0°30' |
That does´nt work. Camber = 0. In curves driving only on the outer side of the wheel.
