2Bennet Camber Plate Group Buy: Its Official

A couple of questions:
Why does this not work on the type 44 versus the C4? I have ECS camber
plates on my S6 and they make the different between being able to align the
car and having to buy new tires every year. This is essentially the same
front end as the type 44.
In thinking about the design of the front end, it is the movement of the nut
that attaches to the top of the damping rod/shock absorber that determines
caster and camber. The spring doesn't need to go anywhere to affect
caster/camber change. Why is the spring perch a problem?
When you suggest slotting the holes, I assume you are talking about the
holes in the body of the car?
Granted, this may not be for everyone, but for those who are running lowered
cars or trying to get a bit more caster, they do work.
For the rest of the list, here's a link to Igor's modified camber plates.
Basically, Igor pulled the studs out of the stock plate, spun the plate 180
degrees, and re-installed the studs in new holes with a slight offset (it
was necessary to spin the plates 180 degree to get to some undrilled area).

IMO, this is a rip off for use on 44 chassis cars! I can't speak with
experience to its value on S-cars, but it is entirely unnecessary for our
44s, as was Igor Kessel's posting several years ago of a remachined stock
camber plate. Unnecessary because the stock upper spring perch, not the
camber plate, is the limiting factor in camber or castor adjustability.
This limit is easily reached with minor slotting of the stock camber plate
at zero cost. Further, IMO, one must always keep one's back to the wall,
protecting one's wallet, when dealing with 2B.
