If you want camber plates, post in this thread

No one makes camber plates for the F56. With that said I've been emailing anyone I can think of, to see if they are going to make plates. My general sense is that there isn't enough demand. I'd love to have a million responses to this thread and then point manufacturers to this thread in hopes they will begin production.

Thus far I've reached out to:

sneed4speed
Ireland Engineering
Vorshlag
Helix Motorsports

Thanks.

I'm interested

Yep. Looks like the MINI top mounts are a derivative of the BMW F22 top mounts, so most of the work we did on the BMW will cross over to the MINI.

To achieve the stock perch height, and not raise the car when on stock springs took some real work. Right now our F22 tester is pounding miles and track days on the design trying to break it. But so far it's all been good.

Just for reference - here are the Challenge car fixed camber bushings. These are not available for general sale - I got them because of my issues with the adjustables. I hope these fix the movement issues and retain camber! We will find out today I suppose!

I contacted BC about releasing some (since all of their coilovers normally come with them standard) but they gave up on the project due to space constraints.

I hear the f22 will be availible for sale soon, are these a straight shoe-in for the mini f56

Or do you need more development time for us ?

Anyone figure a way to adjust caster yet? my front right is off, so even after an alignment, it pulls slightly to the right. No adverse tire wear, just an annoyance.

update:
the test vehicle got into a car accident and then was sold so the camber plates were never tested. they are still looking for a test vehicle and the utmost no-questions-asked REQUIREMENT is that they are a texas local (vorshlag located in Plano, TX).

doesn't matter if you're 1 state away, they REQUIRE a local car as they do constant checks pre- and post-install. any texas folk here?

I've got a 2016 JCW with the JCW Pro suspension, exhaust, and the Quaife LSD out of the Challenge car. I also live in downtown Dallas. Wonder if they'd want to test out camber plates on my car.

same suspension bits as f56, so you'd be a fairly perfect fit. I'll PM you when I get to a PC. Thanks ​for this!!
