Camber plate increments.

I need a rough estimate how far to move the camber plate adjuster to get 1 degree of change. All help appreciated.

I'm not sure if anyone will be able to give you close number. There are just to many variables (amount of lowering, camber plate type etc) plus if you take the car to the alignment shop you might need to set both camber plate adjusters at different position to get matching camber specs on both sides.

It` a basic angle, height will change it a bees willy. Type of plate same thing. I just want a rough idea for testing. I don`t care about near/off side difference because the track camber and circuit rotation will alter this. Thanks Skubi

That's how my are set up right now: -3,00 Both sides, lowered 20mm, OEM crash bolt in upper strut hole. As you can see setting anything by adjusting just camber plate might be quite inaccurate because my driver side is almost maxed out and I do still have some adjustment left at passenger side.

There is no answer we can give you.
Those marks are for you to know because like Sukubi said there are to any other variables. They are akin to a dope book for snipers.

The difference in camber angle for each marking is going to be car specific hell even side specific.

I`m lucky in one aspect. mine are equally centered on zero ,both sides, at -2.4. MCA and have a neat mix and match (crash bolt?) base camber adjustment system.
https://mcasuspension.com/camber-washers-explained

I asked when it was aligned how much and which way toe would would go if I added more negative camber. I don`t remember now because when told it was not enough to worry about. I would like a bit more negative camber for the track events next two w/ends. I can easily return the setting afterwards.

The amount of camber before an event is also a ballpark figure. It will change depending on the track, the tires, the drivers aggression and more. So i guess I will just adjust myself to suit tire wear/temp and get a figure next time at the aligners. So I can run a street/track compromise that won`t kill tires quicker than necessary.

As I recall the ones that came on my KW V2's gave me about 2 degrees total from one side to the other, or +1/-1 from center. To get the total I wanted (3.5 or so) I did one 14mm bolt and one SPC camber bolt at the knuckle, then used the top hat for the fine adjustment.

Spoke to a suspension guy for Toyota Gazoo racing Australia and got the ball park figure I was after. So now I can move the camber plates enough to do
tire temp tests at the track and dial it in nicely.
Here are my plates with -2°30' camber +5°30' caster both sides.

Get one of these off Ebay. Surprisingly good enough.

Made this it`s accurate and sits against the rim lip. It will do to keep tabs at the track with my pyrometer
