On Dinan's site...."Front Camber Plates are now available for use with the Stage 1 Suspension". I did NOT have the springs done, therefore car not lowered. Calgary BMW has spoken with Dinan as did Reg at RCTS and according to Dinan the Camber Plates have NOT been tested on a car with stock springs. They said they designed them for a lowered car with stiffer springs. They said the car will actually be HIGHER then stock now and will probably become "squirrelly" at higher speeds..... HUH!!

So, yes the spin on the track was my fault as the car was way different and I didn't back off but other factors did play a part. So, Calgary BMW removed the plates and things seem back to normal. Now just dealing with refunds, etc...
