Default 1/8 front tire wear question

Notice this front tire wear while cleaning up my car, I dont think I ever seen this type of wear before that I can remember. Is there any meaning to how my front tires wore out during my last run ?

Looks like you may have a combination of too much static camber and perhaps too much Ackerman.

The flang on the inside is normal when running through a wide high speed corner

Roelof like always your the man ! Running my new Shepherd V8 WC vision I was able to run almost at full throttle around the last sweeper vs before with my older car I was unable to do. Also had a higher entry and exit speed when it came to cornering also.

The MACH track over here in Heemstede has 2 corners going up the straight you can take as one with full throttle in the 2nd speed and the flang is normal to have. Due the centrufugal forces on the car the tire is bended over but that last piece of the tire hanging over the edge of the rim has a lower pressure to have the same wear as with the rest of the tire pressed by the rim on the ground.

Man that would be great if someone can catch that on a top of the line high speed camera in HD.

I've seen that a couple times on tracks that have good grip and some really fast corners. If it bugs you you can try going up a shore and rounding the edges a bit more but to me, that just means they are working, haha.

Edit. Just remembered the tires that did it the most were those hybrids that were a combo of front and rear rubber. They did it all the time but didn't hurt anything.
