The Ground Control STREET/TOURING plate, a special version of our
camber/caster plates, toned down for dual-purpose cars. Uses a
proprietary upper perch which can reuse the stock spring insulator. A
work of art, carved from a single piece of billet aluminum. That is the
only way to describe this new street camber plate from Ground Control.
Fits entirely within stock reinforcements, and is adjustable through a
range of center to about -3 degrees, (at lowered ride height) and can
be reversed. There is NO CHANGE in ride height. No central bearings,
yet using a waterproof German steering bearing which is rebuildable
unlike the stock parts. Click Here for RACE plates.
GC RACE and HYBRID, (not pictured) camber/ caster plates have a large
range of adjustment for caster. This is because the type of person who
has a true coilover kit, where the spring rate can be selected and
changed, may also be able to utilize the range of caster for
experimentation and adjustment.
The GC STREET camber plates have a range of caster adjustment that is
intentionally limited. The caster range allows the car to be aligned,
and adjusted, but not enough range for experimentation. The reason is
that a person who does not choose their spring rate, is not the person
who should be experimenting with caster. Caster ALWAYS changes the
toe-in and bumpsteer, and the entire car must be realigned after
adjusting. The intentionally limited range of the STREET camber plates
allows the caster to be adjusted to compensate for factory deviations,
but without allowing the caster to be adjusted to a specification that
is out of the comfort zone of a driver who is not used to the pitfalls
of experimentation and testing.
