Ive used the search function but cant find what im after.

who out there has adjusted the front camber on a simple fujimi kit??

basically, Ive never attempted to adjust the camber on a 1/24 kit before and just wanted some advise before i start hacking away.

its a very basic fujimi kit with struts at the front (i only want to adjust the front)
being a fujimi, the 'axle' for the front wheels are glued into a recess in the brake disk.
am i right that i can just glue this axle in on the angle i want and thats it? or will i need to adjust the angle of the whole strut and adjust mounting points on lower wishbones and steering rack?

thanks in advance.

You could extend the lower arm out and drill a small hole for the suspension part to slide into. Same with the wheel arch area, drill a new hole further toward the center of the car :)

Hope this helps

I did this three months ago on Fujimi's S14 kit because i'm going to use Kiwami kit tires from an Aoshima kit. What a pain in the ass buddy. I spent about a week on each end of the car hacking, grilling, gluing styrene and puttying things up. I really don't think i'd do this again even though I like and would buy aoshima wheel kits just for the kiwami tires (if they came with the wheels).
