Remember that caster settings are mostly adjusted for driver preference and comfort, and camber settings are important so that the front end will have the maximum amount of footprint and traction to use to turn the car at midturn. Many of our problems related to a car that won't turn well come from incorrect camber settings and camber change problems.

Often, a car that has a serious push can be helped by analyzing and adjusting the static camber as well as knowing the camber change amounts. For dirt cars, taking tire temperatures may not be feasible, but measuring tire wear can tell us a similar story as temperatures. The more wear, probably the more temperature that part of the tire experiences. Even wear across the tread translates to more even tire temperatures and the best camber settings.
