M4 GTS GC plates set to max negative camber

Can someone please share a pic of their GTS GC camber plates in max (or close to) negative camber setting? Top mount perspective.

Thanks

Do the GTS specific camber plates offer the same adjustment range as non GTS ones. I'm running different suspension on my GTS. I'm happy to provide a picture but not if it's analogous.

Yeah bud, if you don't mind. Might be able to glean something from it. Thanks

I'm not sure what the differences are GTS to non-GTS versions.

Yep, so the plates do have greater adjustability available, but we're limited by the (silver) strut brace bracket. Sound right? Guess I'm already at max if so.

Pictured here, although these plates are still in street setting. You run into the same limitation after the bolts are rearranged. Thanks

Yeah, you're gonna be limited by the strut brace. You'll still be able to get over 3 degrees though.

Friend wanted more negative camber and cut into the aluminum brace. I’ll see if I can get some pictures, but he’s been running this for quite a few track days with no issues - doesn’t look great though.

Edit, add pic

Yeah I'm maxed out. Still not enough with the stock wheels and OE tire size, I guess. Probably just need throw in the towel on the GTS orangeys and go wider.

Thanks fellas, may see what a couple of shops think about this. Braces look only about $80 per, so could chop up a set and experiment.

$80 for a brace would be a great find, new they look to be ~235:

Yep you're right, thanks. Was looking at the wrong price. Still not bad. Considering options.

Millway M4 GTS camber plates

I had GC plates that maxed out short of 3 degrees. Other issues with GC led me to Millway. A much better design, more stout, and superior customer service with Millway. Now at full 3 degrees and like others, limited by the strut brace.

No looking back.

I have been using the prototype M4 GTS plates since last September. They have been solid, silent and easy to install. I can't wait to see the improvements! Truly an engineering driven company driven to customer solutions, not cookie cutter products.

I just inquired and there isnt really much of a change. They are now using studs instead of bolts.

You are correct sir! Samuel just emailed me with the same info.

One final commercial, I installed the upper rear control arms from Millway, significantly beefier design and a more robust clamping design. No movement in alignment after lots of track days at multiple tracks (NCM, Autbahn 8x, Blackhawk 4x, RA 2x, VIR).

I look for stability and longevity, I am getting this with Millway.

Millway looks like an engineers dream. Their stuff is so nice looking.
