Anyway, could you post a pic of the front tire wear side by side with the left and right tires together? Are they wearing in a flat profile?
WOW! just measured tyres

Front right 63.2 Front left 59.3!

Rear right 61.2 Rear left 61.4

Yikes ! I think that lies your answer. But what I'm surprised is the front left wearing so much more compared to the rear tires in general.

I think your problem would be solved if you swap the tires from left to right etc.

p/s: I think Mark will be most happy to see that you still have the original rear shock tower. Probably Serpent will not be happy.

I was thinking that!!! Hmm not sure I'm happy - a further sign of Serpent sloppily producing parts which don't break even when they are supposed to - A letter to Peter is on its way

The front right looks a little coned from here - not sure about the front left?
Make sure you adjust the camber so the fronts wear evenly across their width.

That is a bit strange with the left front, though - are you using a locked front axle?

Left looks slighty coned and the right looks pretty flat - you need a bit more -ve camber of the right, by the looks of it - but check this yourself, as the picture can deceive.

Actually I'm 14 hours earlier than you ... in Texas, USA. Nearly wanted to disturb SerpentFreak but with the weather here and workload .... well, you know the usual.

Also, am staying in this hotel where you get non stop broadband if you agree to pay $9 for 24 hrs.
