Would This Work: Camber Gauge
I have a Kell-Strom digital protractor (Aero Angle II, Pro 3600) with a magnetic base that will tell me degrees of angle down to a tenth. I was thinking about putting the protractor on the hub of the car and using it to tell me degrees of camber gained relative to an initial reading. This way, despite if the car is on level ground, I will know when I have added a degree of negative camber by knowing what it was at to begin with. I run a degree of camber for daily driving, with the MaximumMotorsports plates in the negative position moved all the way outboard. I'd like to run close to two and a half degrees at the track.
Anyone see a flaw in this? I imagine it being more accurate than something like a bubble gauge. If I in fact have one degree of negative camber, the gauge shows 89 degrees. Subtract 1.5 from that to get 87.5 degrees, for a total of 2.5 degrees of negative camber. I don't trust it because it doesn't cost me anything. Good, free, what is that.
