Hi all hope i can put this issue to rest =)
The "slotting" or filing out the holes is one good way to ensure a good camber angle is achieved for really no cost at all. The only problem here is that once you remove the bolts the angle you previously had will be lost.
My idea is the so called 'slugs' with different offsets which allows you to acheive many different combinations resulting in negative or positive camber up to 5 degrees either way.
This is how my setup is done;
- Drill out all four holes from 10mm to 14mm, 14mm drill bit will do fine (note: you can leave the bottom hole 10mm and just put the slugs in the top holes but this will only give you 2 degrees. The slugs will need to be in the bottom and top holes to acheive max camber)
- 8 slugs will need to be made. 2 - no offset, 2 - 0.5mm offset, 2 - 1mm offset, 2 - 1.5mm offset.
- The slugs will need to be 14mm OD, 10mm ID, a lip on the top so they dont fall through, and be 2mm shorter that the holes so when tightening they 'clamp' down.
- the slugs are to be put in the top and bottom holes!
- Firstly put the middle bolts in LOOSLY (NOTE : they will be loose due to the holes being 14mm with a 10mm bolt, dont stress as the washers will hold them in place once tightened)
- Put the lower slug in place (grease all parts well) Tighten and just back off a bit so that the hub can now move slightly.
- Now you can pivot the hub to achieve the desired angle of camber. The slugs will not rotate thus keeping them in the right place.
- I have tried different combinations and noted what combo gives you what camber so i can change it on the fly.
- Also we were able to change the camber in 0.25 degrees per combo.
One year of racing and it hasn't and never will budge!!
Good luck =)
