front and rear camber gain?

Can anyone tell me what level of camber gain occurs on the front and rear of an NSX. Camber gain is the increase in camber above that of roll (so you corner at 2.5 deg of roll but the wheel gains say an extra .5deg to keep tyre flat) and not that static camber setting.
In addition what changes are made to your NSX in this regards for the track?

This can be a very difficult question to answer.
You would have to model the NSX as a system.

Each control arm has a different dynamic curve to it.
So, depending on what the beginning ride height is your 2.5° roll would impart a different camber gain.
Plus, the stiffness of the spring resistance, torsion bar (anti-roll bar), sidewall strength, etc to roll, you might be at 2° not 2.5°.

Except for Honda’s engineering team, I think what your asking for no one has really put all the numbers down.

The best thing to do is model the system with each component. Does anyone have the time for this…
