General Question

why does adjusting the camber in the front and rear of your car enable race tires to last longer? I race a Porsche 911 and am hearing differing things about the benifits of camber settings.

race tires are usually made of a softer rubber than normal street tires to enable better traction. changing the camber changes the weight distribution of the vehicle over the tire - and given that the rubber is softer, changing the camber makes sure that the right amount of pressure is being put on the tire to prevent uneven wear...
