    My challenger hellcat after a month and two weeks has Negative Camber on front wheels.

    Is anyone experience this on the hellcat?

    What are the Hellcat alignment specs and what is are your readings? Negative camber will give you more corning grip but it's all meaningless unless you look at the factory specification vs. actual readings from your car.

    If anyone has the alignment specs. it would make a nice WIKI article.... I'll even volunteer to put it out there if needed. I just don't have the specs.

    Yeah I see it on mine. I noticed it when I put new tires on at about 400 mile on the car.

    I noticed it last week even my kids noticed it.
    When i got the car the wheels were fine.
    I'm thinking of taking it in to get it checked.

    I noticed just a slight negative camber and assumed it was intentional due to the size and weight of the car for cornering. Idk???

    Sounds like the springs are settling??? That is not normal on other new cars. Lots of weight under the hood.

    This is a performance car its setup from the factory to run some more negative camber than usual. Negative camber is actually a good thing to a point from a performance aspect.

    More negative camber helps these pigs turn as well as they do.

    Factory spec calls for negative camber and is normal as SRT intends these cars to be driven on road courses too, not just in a straight line. If you only care about straight line performance then remove the negative camber.

    Negative camber was a big deal back in 2011 when Ralphy McGilles brought the Green with Envy car to Motoman for that super long video way-back-when.

    He specifically mentions how they added quite a bit of negative camber for handling purposes. Don't know that I would be alarmed in the slightest by this.

    Thanks for the specs. Any chance you have it in a PDF format? If so post it up and I'lll add the WIKI. If not I'll post up the specs and hopefully not make any typos! Thanks.

    As a few have stated the cars do come from the factory with slight negative camber, and yes this is to improve handling
