When I installed the brace 2 years ago, it was because my car
had the weldings at the passenger side (used car).
When I am running on track I have problems with outside wear
on the tyres due to body roll and heavy front.
My Camper is - 0.5 but I have been thinking of a modification
of the brace, in order to pull the towers together, in order to
be able to get a more negative Camper.
I just spoil all my tyres - Yokohama A032 225/45 17,
Bridgestone PP03. The outer sidewall is used half down and
the treadpatterns suffer outside.
Fronttemperature 65 degC, 150F; Backtyres 38C = 100
I suppose -3 would help?
