Hey Toby..whats this about the bavaria's lower control arms?

It would put the tire that much closer to the fender would it not? Seems that the - camber strut mounts are a better investment if running large size tires and wheels

but then, at this point, you're probably not worried about original front fenders, either!

What it actually does is increase the front track considerably, and for those of us who want more than 2 1/2 degrees of negative front camber, that's a good thing, too. Then the camber plates can be used to adjust more or less camber as each racetrack demands it. But a wider track (if caught!) may cause all sorts of lengthy and frustrating discussions with race stewards about which class you're about to be placed in...

Ireland bends the struts of their race cars, for the extra degree (3 1/2 total), and says that's enough.

There are also pictures of front suspension spacers that will drop the lower control arm (maintaining front arm geometry) and extend it (messing up steering geometry) to do the same thing. I've never found a US source, but others have gotten them from Germany.

And lastly, if your suspension is stiff enough for the track, you probably won't need more than Ireland's 3 1/2 degrees negative. On the street, you probably won't WANT more than 1 to 1 1/2 negative, as the car starts to follow ruts more than it follows the steering wheel.

fwiw,
