Camber is the top of the tire leaning toward quad (negative camber) or away from quad (positive camber) – as suspension components and tires flex and chassis roles – the tire will lean or ride up on its edge which causing handling issues – ideally, we want the maximum foot print of the tire at the maximum load which is typically through entry and the center of the corner, this will give us the greatest front grip.
There are several factors that cause us to use camber – strength of a-arms, play in bushings / bearings, tire size, type and pressure, etc.. the stronger the side wall of the tires and A-arms, the less camber is needed and obviously the weaker the components, tire size and side wall flex, the more camber is needed.
Target: TT / XC / MX / Desert – 3/8” to 5/8” negative camber each side
OVAL – 3/8” to 5/8” negative camber outside tire + ¼” positive camber inside tire
