What camber is built in to your front axles? Is there a difference between the winged and non-wing front axle when it comes to camber? a friend of mine races full size sprints and has some axles that are split camber (12 deg RF and 9 deg LF) and some axles are 10 deg on both sides, it just got me thinking about my axles.

The camber is zero, but the king pins are at a 10 degree angle, and so is the spindle, the the net result is the tire has zero camber. You friend is probably talking king pin angle, not actual camber.

Then what is the purpose of angling the king pin and spindle if the net result is 0? why not just have both with 0 degree?

Weight jacking, as you counter steer it lifts the right side adding LR weight to help tighten the car. Its the camber in combination with the castor that does the weight jacking and it keeps the car wanting to go straight so it doesn't "wonder" going down the straight.

thanks. so then do you always have to make sure the kingpin angle and the spindle angle are the same so you have that net 0? or are they all the same and we don't have to worry about checking that before we buy?

Yes, you want to make sure they are the same, at least for Dirt, on asphalt they will run a little camber, like 2 or 3 degrees
