Dropping 1.75" new CC plates or just bolts?

tokico blues are good for the money...not the best, but quality is good for the low cost when considering what stock usually runs.

and anything over 1.5" i'd always get CC plates...

yep...although a bit of neg camber never hurt anyone if you're doing it for the right reasons (i.e. auto x), but if you're a DD then lets keep those tires wearing right

also i think tomorrow i'm just gonna cut off about 7-8 inches of tail pipe and paint the rest black to hide it instead of just dumping after the axles

I have tokico blues... Pretty darn good I would say... Well compared to my beat up stockers...

CC plates next... Hopefully. I'm thinking about building up my suspension since power adders are nothing but hopes and dream for me...

1 degree or so won't kill the tires too quickly and will feel better in a corner then perfectly aligned...

If you DD your car, then by all means get CC plates. I have Neg Camber and my front tires don't last very long.

it's all about how the full contact path is made on a tire when it's under a load during the roll at the turn. a bit of negative camber will help it grip on tight twists...however let me say if you're into straight light racing you want 0 camber for the best launches and racing...
