Camber. Converting inches to degrees?
Also posted in the autocross/roadracing forum.
Does anyone know how to convert inches to degrees for a camber reading?
Using a straight edge on the face of the wheel, I shimmed up the straight edge so it was perfectly plumb up and down. Then I measured from the straight edge to the top of the wheel, which was 1 3/16". Then measured from the straight edge to the bottom of the wheel, 1/2" or 8/16". Making a difference of 11/16". So the top of the wheel is 11/16" more in-ward than the bottom.
Can anyone give me the formula to convert these numbers, or am I wasting my time trying to figure it out? This is for a 17" wheel
