Fabian of A&A Tires and Wheels in Reseda, California, sets the wheel alignment on our 'Stang before we put the QA1 Remote Adjustment System through its paces. Camber affects a 'Stang's handling; negative camber is what we look for to improve grip when cornering. As drag racing probably is the most-popular form of non-street driving activity for 'Stangbangers, the key information to know is that zero camber is the best setting for straight-line handling. At zero camber, the tires' tread is flat against the track surface. For the uninitiated enthusiasts who are reading this, when the top of the wheel is farther out than the bottom, the front end has excessive positive camber. Conversely, if the bottom of the wheel is farther out than the top, negative camber is dominant. For high-speed romps, caster settings should be positive by 6-8 degrees. Steering may tighten up some, but positive caster definitely helps ensure your Pony ride will be stable at the top end.
