Ijust bought a nova to race on a 3/8 asphalt track and probably a clay oval also. I've taken all the shims out of the left front arm and it's still at about 1 degree negative camber. How can I get the camber to positive, I want to run around 2 degrees positie. I've thought about moving the top ball joint or maybe machining the pivot "bolt". Moving the ball joint looks like it will require some work. Any suggestions. The rules say stock suspension systems only. I would appreciate any suggestions, especiall from nova owners that have had this problem.

Thanks,
Randy

Unlike the title says, it's a 72'. Somehow I put the year in wrong. Just bought it, now trying to get it set up. Bought a Steve Smith chassis book, now putting it to the test. First practice is next weekend.
Still trying to decide to race asphalt or dirt. Right now I'm leaning toward the dirt. Is it just me, or is this post now split in half? Thanks to the other gentleman for the info on the offset pivot.
