Adjusting camber on red9

Post by 58splitty » Wed Feb 13, 2019 12:18 pm

Hi

Im adjusting the camber on my red9 front s up, at the moment its set at 2 and needs to be 0.5. Am I right in saying that this is adjusted by turning the 36mm gold nut?

I may be wrong - but thought it was done by adding or removing washers where the A arms meet the beam?

You have to add shims to the side plates at the top 2 holes. This gives a touch more angle to get to where you need to be.

3 shim washers instead of 1 😀
