That sounds like a lot. I usually run about 3 in the right front and 1 the other way on the left front for camber. i don't remember where i had my caster set but 5 degrees sounds a little bit high. i am on 1/4 and 3/8 banked dirt tracks.

6410: Your car HAS to turn an immediate left when you let go of your wheel!!! Does it PUSH going down the straights? I agree that is an awful lot. I run simular to what Speedracer92 has. I am playing around with steering geometry this year, and will maybe even run less camber on right front. The car gets a little too dicy now and again, and it can make it hard to straighten up for the pull down the straights. Good luck!!!

if it ain't fun, then don't run

Camber -- we got real close to the tire temps we wanted on a 1/2 high bank track at 4 1/2 (positive) on left front and 1 1/2 (negative) on the right front.

Caster...1 1/2 left and just make sure it's staggered 2 deg, or so, with an extra 1/4" shim on the right. (These are both positive...and too much (6+ degrees) can be bad too.
