Pretty common trick for showroom stock back in the day.... I suppose it would be more or less undetectable... and cheap, too!!

Just thinking.

Well, WONDERING, actually.... do people get away with this?

Err? If there are ways to adjust camber legally, why go to the trouble to do this? Am I missing something? (Assuming we are talking IT here.)

There's a basket full of cheater ideas from VW GTI and Mazda SS guys back in the '80s. Offset cam pulley keys from Mercedes, drill-n-drain struts filled with heavier oil, all kinds of wacky gearbox stuff, potentiometers in radio dials, recalibrated FI flapper pots, "broken" alternator wires...and bent suspension bits! More than one National competitor had parts marked "Atlanta" in the garage - the ones that had come out of the car when they first took delivery.
