Re: Camber

I just have a little $10 angle finder that works for camber. I'm not sure how to accurately check castor. I just eyball it and measure from the mounting holes to make sure they are even on both sides.

Re: Camber

When I changed my upper A-arms out for the coilover shocks I lost my camber adjustment. I think it was because of the Uniball setup. Anyway, I ended up with about a 2 degree neg camber and it makes for great turning. With the Holeshots up front it is a night and day difference over the Afterburns I had. I can actually power through a turn now!

Re: Camber

Thanks for the Camber angle info. I'll try it!
I can see the Holeshots turning better, than some of the other tires. They have a flatter tread profile and have a lot of little tread gripping edges.
Thats why I Grooved my front tires.
More edges = more traction.

The Afterburns were 26" the Holeshots are 25". I run Holeshots on the back for racing but switch out to Bighorn 2.0 26" for trail riding. The Holeshots stay on the front.

I got Elka's.
I'm working with Tony from Elka right now to get the shocks set up for the type of terrain and racing I do out in this neck of the woods. It seems what worked good in the desert at high speed doesn't work the best for the woods. I'll do a seperate thread with more info after I try the new springs.

Re: Camber

So they have released them? The last thing I heard from Redline was ELKA and Redline were still working together to develop the shock be releasing them. Interesting.
