caster vs camber

Hey guys...ive been really wondering about whether I should decrease caster to get more camber. Question is would it be better to do it or should I just keep my max caster and then get the most camber afterwards?

Ive been doing some searching and seems like caster only really helps with high speed stability but if you think about some geometry...the more caster you have when you turn your steering wheel you will have more camber automatically.

Basically more camber? or more caster?

You're correct, dynamic camber > static camber. Keep max caster...

What's your camber as it sits now?

Like -1.4 or so... but tc Kline actually chimed in on my other thread and said to get to-2.4 camber then get as much caster after that
