These cars need more negative front camber for anything other than straight line racing and driving. Increasing negative camber allows more even tire wear and improves lateral load traction. Here's a way to get a little FREE negative front camber. That is, nearly free; this is a built-in solution so there are no parts to buy, but you'll need an alignment after.

Place the front of the vehicle on stands, apply tape around the base of the nylon stud to protect the paint, screw a short screw in the top of the nylon stud to prevent it from collapsing when gripped, grasp with pliers and extract the stud.
