Hello,its hard to see the pictures clearly,but as far as string postion you want everything to line up as striaght as possible when it comes to idler and cam.
Now as far as the slide goes on my o8 cheetah it's turned the opposite of yours,im not sure how big a difference it makes.

on my pics, the red line is the string and the green line is the middle of the bow (limb to limb)

just to know if the cam is in a good position, or if it will be centered for the string will be in straight line with the idler wheel??

Now that you cleared that up I can answer. The cam is where it should be. It needs to be to the left. I just tore mine down a week ago thinking it might be better to center the cam more in the limb fork. What I did was switch the spacers around. The result was that the cable would not track well into the module groove so I switched them back.

OK?

I might also add that the only bows I'm aware of that have the string groove at the center of the limb are those with Martin X cams. Since the very inception of the compound bow the string groove has been offset. You set the centershot of your rest accordingly with an initial setup.

Thanks, you're great

I am relieved to my cam position , my archery dealer say me today that my string's wear-out is normal.

I can order my new string set.

Have a good day,
