Camber --

Seen from the front and rear of the car, the angle of the tires in relation to the ground; tires that are perfectly perpendicular to the ground (90 degrees) are said to be at 'zero camber'. If the tops of the tires lean towards each other, the tires have negative camber, and if they lean out, the tires have positive camber. As a general rule, never have positive camber, and make sure the camber of, say, your front right wheel equals the camber of your front left wheel (make the camber angles on each axle match). If we were talking about oval racing, the rules would be different, but we're not. Sedan racing, with it's straights, turns and chicanes requires that, among other things, camber angles match. Usually one degree of negative camber on the fronts is good, because you want a good contact patch throughout a turn, and one or two degrees of negative camber on the rear wheels is fine. From there, experiment, one degree at a time.
