Somehow I keep losing camber adjustment in my back left tire. Ended up hitting the wall 2 rounds later in a race for 3rd place.

This keeps happening when I pull out to the left and hit the gas to warm up my tires...



ps, iron heads do flow

In the video below at the 5:52 mark, you can see my round 1 race against a Toyota with a LS 5.3 truck motor swap. He was only running 205 tires tough...

What could that be, a bolt not staying tight?

Seems like it. Haven't had 100 percent of both rear wheels on the track all summer. :/

If an 88gt look at these from rodney, and use loctite on all suspension parts that you don't want to move, don't use to much so that things can be broke free later if needed.

Your hub to strut bolts are slipping- They are supposed to be torqued to 140 Lb/Ft......I am still playing with my suspension but when I get done and have the final alignment, I plan on making small metal pieces that will fill in the slot so they are not able to slip ever again.

It's an 87GT with the HELD/Arraut setup.

@cvxjet
I was thinking the same thing. I'll have to ask to see if they use a torque wrench and to use that setting next time. Thanks!

We have had rear camber slip in our race car. It's no fun and definitely causes some weird handling issues. All alignment places I've used don't tighten the bolts enough.

After an alignment I now reef on them with about 4 feet of breaker bar till I can't move the nuts anymore. Not sure how much torque it is but we haven't been having issues with the camber moving either.
