Default crazy camber settings

i run 15x8 +0 offset wheels with stretched 195/50/15's DZ101 tires with -4 camber in the front and -3 camber in the rear.

my friend told me to try that out and man did he prove me wrong

i take corners like nothing. what we do is "touge" just for you guys that dont know we just go through windy roads and i take those turns at 110 with no problem and 80 on s turns.

give me some suggestions and some past experiences.

am I an idiot or does this setup actually help?

I'm going to avoid the stretched tires issue altogether since I have nothing nice to say.

As far as camber, that's way too much negative camber for the street IMO. What did you use in order to get -4 degrees anyway? What did the alignment shop say when you told them to use that much?

Also "touge" is a Japanese word that means a mountain pass/road. What you're doing is just reckless driving.

i have not commented in a while here, but sometimes blunt is just right. it sounds like 1966Cutlas is right - your just driving recklessly. WTF are you going to do if you round a corner and there is a car, or a motorcycle in the way? THE ANSWER IS YOU ARE GOING TO KILL SOMEONE. im less conserned with the chamber settings and more conserned with the driving. there is a place for that kind of driving, and its not on the street. you could hit a patch of gravel and kill yourself and your friends if they are with you. learn some respect for the road before you kill yourself or someone else.

Finally! A reasonable and considerate human being speaks up!

You picked the wrong forum to discuss your JDM Touge fanboi bullshit. The offset of your wheels is wrong, the tires are too narrow, there's too much camber, and you're driving like a ******* tool.

Sell your car before you wrap it around a ******* tree.

haha i thought you guys would know that this was a joke and not a real statement. the question at the very bottom of my first post obviously shows it was a joke. who would ask if they were an idiot lol calm down guys, read it again now that you know it was a joke and im pretty sure you can get a good laugh out of it.

Joke inspired by local kids discussions at car meets about dreams to be JDM

You could reduce the poll to one choice (pick one) and the results would be the same.
