Camber; how much ‘ya got, bro?
The Bosozoku styling trend in Japan isn’t dead. Only now, they have moved from skateboard front lips to ‘oni-camber’. The idea of demon- camber is to have insane levels of negative camber, which is far beyond what a lowered suspension can achieve. This is often achieved by welding on additional angled mounts to the suspension ends. The car’s body is often less than an inch off the ground and the wheels have just millimetric clearance with the arches.
Not only is oni-camber completely pointless with respect to tyre grip, it also results in uneven tyre wear and you always run the high risk of damaging the rims and tyres by rubbing against the bodywork with the slightest bump. Severe structural damage to the chassis has also been reported, but longevity and reliability is of little importance for these over-the-top tuners.
