INCREASE CAMBER &
REDUCE ANTI BUMP STEER

The Simply Sports Cars dealership team spends a fair amount of time at the race track and at tarmac rally events. So much time in fact that we have full time engineers on staff who are constantly developing products that can be used to upgrade an Elise, Exige or Evora sports car.

The team takes the learnings that are gained from working with the cars day in day out whether it is for daily driving or as track day cars or targa rally sports cars. They get to listen to what every driver is asking for or can see areas that might benefit from slight improvements made to items that are used on the vehicle. 

One of those examples is the product we designed that is available in our shop --> Anti Bump Steer & Increased Camber Steering Arm

 

WHY DO YOU
NEED MORE CAMBER

Camber is the angle at which the wheel and tire sit relative to the road or the race track. The simplest way to see what camber looks like is to view the wheel and tire head on. If the vehicle is stationary, the tire maintains a static camber angle but obviously when cornering this contact patch will change and shift. So typically to counteract this and have the greatest amount of tire on the surface while cornering, camber settings must be taken into consideration

By increasing the amount of negative camber on the front wheels you can achieve a more agressive level of turn in and thus reduce the amount of understeeer being produced. Obviously this situation will vary depending on the type of driving style, track surface, tyre type, width of tyre & even temperature or track conditions.

 

WHAT BENEFITS DOES
OUR CAMBER STEERING ARM PROVIDE?

 - MORE NEGATIVE CAMBER ADJUSTMENT
 - REDUCED BUMP STEER
 - LIGHTER THAN OEM PART
 - MADE FROM SOLID BILLET
 - TOUGH AND DURABLE

The Simply Sports Cars Anti Bump Steer and Increased Camber Steering Arm has been designed to allow for a greater amount of negative camber adjustment. We also designed this product to reduce bump steer when the ride height of the car has been changed from standard (we often see when people have changed their stock suspension for Nitron Adjustable units.)

We have this Anti Bump Steer and Increased Camber Steering Arm made out of a solid piece of billet that is CNC machined to make it tough and lighter than the factory unit as well.

 

 

CAN SUSPENSION ADJUSTMENTS
HELP IMPROVE YOUR LAP TIMES?

I can attest to this upgrade. Recently got this from SSC along with Kumho's. Even more confidence inspiring if that's possible and got me 4 seconds a lap more at Sydney Motorsport Park in first outing after upgrade!"

While adjusting suspension can help improve lap times it won't be the only thing that can help in this area. It's important to remember that sometimes it is the 'sum of all parts' so to speak where a combination of driver skill, tyres, track conditions and suspension set up can work together to help improve lap times. Chris upgraded his wheels and tyres to use the stickier Kumho R Spec tyres plus added our Anti Bump Steer & Increased Camber Steering Arm.

So immediately he had more grip and improved front end response which gave him the confidence on the track that lead to better lap times.
