Also, tire wear is not the point for getting camber plates.
I did run a fully prepped track car doing time attacks in my younger days, so I am familiar with the benefits of a fully optimized suspension. As I stated, I fully agree with the fact that a coil over suspension will take better advantage of an R-comp tire, or any other tire for that matter.
You stated that the stock suspension could not handle
the NT01s and that the OP should "downgrade" his tires, this is the statement that I do not fully agree with.
I also understand that the primary reason of camber adjustment is to optimize the contact patch to optimize grip. However, with the (soft) stock suspension and grippy tires, the contact patch is not optimized when cornering resulting in un-even tire wear. I do not compete anymore, so I can live with the reduced grip, but I am not willing to live with the un-even wear. IMO, the camber plates are a reasonable compromize.
I guess it all depends what your ultimate objective is; running (and winning
) competitive events or simply enjoying lapping your DD on a track
