Camber link, adjustable really that handy?

Just pulled out my camber link and it seems in fine shape. Is an adjustable one realy that helpful? I'm already spending too much money this month to realistically consider it but wanted to better understand it's helpfulness. Thanks!

Unless your car is lowered a significant amount it really is not necessary. Keep in mind an adjustable one is usually used to REDUCE rear camber. There are really two reasons you might need one.

1) your car is lowered and you are destroying your rear tires on the streets (does not always happen on lowered FC's).

2) your car is lowered and you need that extra 1/2 second on the track (auto-x, Road racing).

If it's a dedicated track car I would like to be able to adjust camber at my heart's content.

Dedicated track car..........

No one here can tell you if your car need camber adjustment. Are you using a tire temp probe to set your front camber? Use it the same on the rear. If you are not - How are you going to know what camber to set it up when you get the new adjustment?
