Default Tyre wear ??

After I've raced on carpet, the outside edge of my rear tyres are a little blistered, as though they have been working hard.
I run take off CS22's on a schumacher mission.

Maybe too little camber, therefore to much load on the outer edge of the rear tyres ??

Maybe too little and not enough pressure on the outer edge?

Or is it the 2 degree toe in i'm running on the back, just scrubing the tyres?

Or maybe this is correct?

I'm pretty new too all this, and as I gradually get used to the car and making some changes looking for a good setup, i'm just looking for things to give me clues.

Any advice from you guys in the know would be good!

How much camber are you running?

I've been running CS22's outdoors on my 415 with 1.5 of camber, and they are scrubbing on the inside edge.

I would try adding some more camber.

However, having said that....

For the BIWS at don valley, we had to run HPI 15-40's with a Orion 26mm inch up disk wheel, and I ran 2deg of camber. Tyres still wore on the outside edge.

I put this down to the soft wheel being squished (technical term ) under load, so much so that the outside of the tyre was wearing the most. (the wheels are very very soft)

So i could just be the wheel you are using.
What are you using on the CS22's?

I'm running 2 degrees of camber and the wheels that came in the mission kit.

Team Orion Street juice additve.

Its very difficult to imagine exactly what happening to the wheels and tyres when they are under load, flexing and tyre roll etc.

My initial thoughts were to try another 1/2 degree of camber, will let you know the results

If anyone else has any thoughts, please do post.

its the rim for sure try yokes or tamiya rims, if you have a temp gun ....right after you run check the tire on the outsids they should be within a degree of each other thats were your camber is best this works great, after two packs and adjustments your set
