Ground Control makes some, so does Tein, JIC, HKS among others.

One suggestion, go to a road course! Ovals are boring, you gotta be able to turn BOTH ways!

Billy at ReSpeed was making some, http://www.mrcmfg.com/respeed/. They are pretty much the same as the GC ones but probably a little cheaper. email them at [email protected], they might be done by now...

Be careful of what you say...
Does the RESpeed ones use Torrington bearings?
I only know of the GC and K2RD ones that did this.
No other design uses this bearing.

This is probably why it's cheaper...

I couldn't find the product on their web site?

Yes Ted, our camber plates are designed to use the spherical bearing for shock location and thrust bearings for the weight of the car.

Thank you for your concern.

K-mac

Maybe our Aussie members can comment on the K-MAC caster/camber plates.
The sample I saw at SEMA looked very well made but was not for the RX-7.
It looks like the SA & FB would take 481116 suffix B for road/race (with urethane insert) or suffix C for full race (no insert).
The design allows for both caster and camber to be adjusted with the car on the ground.
See www.K-MAC.com
Not the cheapest around but may be worth it for the features they have.

I have the K2RD ones, and am very happy with them, but alas they are no longer made.

They're not caster adjustable and don't use a torrington bearing. The GC's are better, but are probably more expensive.

I have the Cusco camber plates, camber adjustment only (no castor). They're fine for the price (used), but probably the Tein or GC units are a better bet.

Check out the ones that are strong enough for racing at www.AWRracing.com, "store" section.

Stick to Billy (Respeed), he's a valued member of this forum and has started his business in support of the rotary enthusiasts, he is knowledgeable and is available for questions, he also advertises on RX7club, support those who support us.

His products are built for use by those who race the 7 with a minimal budget.

What do the rules allow for chassis mods: tire size, wheel size, min weight, etc

and engine mods; Porting, carb requirement, in your oval track class?
