PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

The 034Motorsport Camber Shim Kit for Audi Gen 1 & 1.5 R8 allows for the easy addition of negative camber to your vehicle. Designed to be a modular upgrade, each shim adds to the maximum camber range adjustable by spacing out the lower control arm in the front and rear suspension of your vehicle, improving both turn in and cornering grip on your R8!

So what does all this mean to you, the driver? By adding negative camber to your Audi R8, turn-in and mid-corner grip is substantially improved as lateral tire grip is maximized. With this extra grip, you will enjoy cornering speeds, from diving into Turn-2 at Laguna Seca Raceway to spirited backroad drives, due to the increased confidence in the amount of grip and lateral g-force your R8 will develop.

As cornering loads increase, so does tire distortion and body roll. The combination of these two factors increases the load on the outer half of the tire. Increasing static negative camber counteracts this interaction, and camber can be adjusted to optimize the tire’s contact patch at maximum cornering load, resulting in improved traction and tire wear.

From the factory, the Audi R8 utilizes a double-wishbone front and rear suspension. This means that there is an upper and lower control arm that connects your wheels to your vehicle. The camber for both the front and rear of the vehicle is controlled via the lower control arm and has a limited range of approximately 1.3°. Camber shims are added between the lower control arm and the frame of your vehicle, allowing for an increased overall range of camber. You are able to add up to two shims per lower control arm bolt point, allowing adjustability of up to -4.3° of negative camber in the front*, and -3.5° negative camber in the rear.

*Measurements taken on 034Motorsport Development R8 Vehicle with Lowering Springs installed, exact camber range may vary*

RECOMMENDED ALIGNMENT:

034Motorsport R8 track use alignment specs; these specifications are optimal for a track-driven car with a very "loose" handling attitude and lively rear end that drives towards oversteer. Caution should be used with these alignment specs as they can cause the car to over-rotate and spin, especially during throttle-lift conditions while turning:

  • Front: (Tires: 255/35/19 Michelin Sport Cup 2)
    • Camber: -2.2 degrees each side (034Motorsport Camber Shims)
    • Caster: 6.0 degrees each side (not adjustable)
    • Toe: 2.2mm (toe in)
  • Rear: (Tires: 315/30/19 Michelin Sport Cup 2)
    • Camber: -2.4 degrees each side (034Motorsport Camber Shims)
    • Toe: 2.0mm toe in (034Motorsport Adjustable Toe Arms)

Our test vehicle is also running 034Motorsport Front and Rear Sway Bars, Dynamic+ Lowering Springs, and all 034Motorsport Spherical Motorsport line of products.

  • How do I know if you have an item in stock?

    In-Stock Products

    In Stock

    Items marked as "In Stock" are physically in our facility, so they're ready to ship when the order is placed. If all items in your order are "In Stock", then your order typically ships within one business day.

    Other Availability Modes

    We use several availability modes to most accurately identify when products will leave their home facility:

    Direct Ship This product is available and will be sourced from one of our suppliers. It may take up to three business days before it ships.

    Warehouse Transfer We receive the item, then we ship it to remain on time with the guaranteed delivery range chosen at checkout. It typically takes between 6 and 12 business days before it ships.

  • How do I know if a part will fit my car?

    We update our catalog daily to provide the most accurate fitment information possible. When shopping for parts, please use the “select your vehicle” car selector on the home page. Once you've selected your car, you can filter parts specific to it.

    Additionally, on each product page, we have a tab for fitment information. By clicking on "Fitment", you can scroll and verify the part you are about to add to your cart indeed fits.

    Furthermore, if you have a vehicle added to our vehicle selector and you are viewing a product page, you'll see fitment information below the "add to cart" button. If an item fits your car it will display "This Part Fits Your: Selected Vehicule". If an item does not fit your vehicle a message will display "This Part Does Not Fit".

  • What is a core charge?

    A “Core Charge” is similar to the deposit you might pay for a can or bottle of soda. In many states, to promote recycling, you are charged a deposit when you purchase a can of soda and you receive your deposit back when you return the empty can. Many automotive parts have Core Charges that work the same way as a soda can deposit. The most common car parts that include a core charge are alternators, calipers, steering racks, and fuel injectors.

  • What is MAP pricing? Why can't I get a discount on a MAP item?

    "MAP" pricing, or Minimum Advertised Pricing, means that the vendor set a minimum retail price that we're not allowed to violate. MAP items cannot be discounted because the decrease in price would violate that threshold.
