Saw some fast guys in Ky. running neg. camber in the lt. frt. , looks about like 3/4 to 1 degree of neg camber and they were bad fast ! What's up with this theory ? What will happen when you run more or less caster in the lt. frt. also and how much does it effect the driver being able to wheel this hot rod ? I wondered if they are trying to use the inside crown of the tire with this neg. camber to effect the caster more or less . Thanks for any info .

On a high banked track where the left side compresses instead of extend during cornering, negative camber on the lf could be advantagous. Otherwise i would think they are triing to compensate for the front end geometry or have designed the front end to work that way.

Seems odd to me. Maybe it helps him turn it back to the right ... very loose.
