996 Camber Plates (Xpost from CFG's 996 board)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have any experience with camber plates? On a 996 it seems to me (please correct me if I'm wrong) that if you change camber, it also changes toe making the plate pretty useless since you need to realign the whole thing...I have also been told that there are race bottom arms with open bottoms and where you can add washers to get to the camber setting you want. Do you guys know anything about that? Thanks in advance

If you are talking about the lower track arms... GT3, GT2 and Cupcars have adjustable lower track arms (with shims). Regular Carrera, Boxster and TT do not have adjustable lower track arms -- unless you change them out with factory or 3rd party (The Racers Group, Smart Racing Products, etc.) parts.

I haven't seen any camber plates for the 996. One of the limitations is the size of the hole in the shock tower. You can only get about 1.5 degree negative before you run out of room. For camber plates to work, you'd have to cut out a larger hole in the shock tower and I'm not sure that would be a good thing for stiffness.

Hi,

there are uniball camber plates around. The GT2/old GT3 uniball plates had two sets of holes, one for road use (-1.0 to -2.5 camber) and on for track use (-3.5 to -5.0 camber). The final adjustment within those ranges was done, as Loren pointed out, through shims in the lower track arms.

Cheers,

Uwe
