I don't think you can even get to -2.8° with them installed in that direction, although I could be wrong.

At minimum positive camber (nut was fully inboard), they were able to get it to -2.6° and -2.8° on my car.

They could be moved more, but they must not be completely straight, or turned forwards enough. They were losing too much caster to get any additional camber. They said they could get it higher, but said it was pretty close to where I wanted it unless I wanted them to charge for at least another hour of labor. Might mess around with it more if I think it's necessary.

I believe those two things bump you into BSP but most people wouldn't really care.

I don't think they make the old banjo bolt anymore, so that would be fine. Someone could protest the retainers, but would be a real jerk for doing so. Also, the TCT is not STR legal technically either. They don't offer any performance advantage... I've never been to nationals, so I guess I don't know.

Locally, no one will likely care. At a national level, someone will be a real jerk if they're losing; not everyone, but there will be at least one person.

I feel like there should be a general rule similar to comfort and convenience for these sorts of reliability mods that couldn't offer any performance increase. Anything that appreciably changes the weight would be out, but stuff like this, or the Porsche IMS fix or that kind of thing could be covered. Although I guess someone could always argue you could push the more reliable engine to higher rpms or something, so I'm sure it would open a giant can of worms.

I also want to disagree with this. For me peak hp on the passwordjdm was equalish to the K&N, and I made a pretty good chunk of power low down in the rpm curve where it's super useful. And it obviously saves a bunch of weight which is the biggest thing.
