2011 was a Brembo car. 2014 is a GT500, which is a totally different animal altogether. I'm running 3 degrees negative camber and the braking is straight and true from 140MPH down.

I had that problem on my 2011 and a pair of Girodisc floating front rotors fixed it. Nothing else made any difference.

H&R Camber bolts torque to 165 lb-ft just fine. They have a smaller range of adjustment, a degree or two at most, but that's why they're strong enough to handle the full torque.

I'd track down a set of NT-01's in 275/40x18. The R888's will heat cycle out before they wear out. The NT-01's don't seem to have that problem - you can run the NT-01's until they cord without any...

My opinion (the facts may vary) is that the whine is a bearing problem and a fluid change won't fix it. Replacing the bearing (by itself or as part of a whole new gearbox) will fix it.
