Fixed negative camber bottom arms, C-AJJ3364

These are a direct replacement for the standard bottom arms and will add 1½° of negative camber to whatever the car has as standard - quoted by the manufacturers as being 1° positive, + 1°.

Measuring what the car has with standard arms will help determine what camber setting will be achieved by using C-AJJ3364. Negative camber helps reduce under steer, therefore improving the cars cornering performance.
