RE: Big donuts

I would guess you're quoting neg camber cause it pulls the top of the
wheels inboard, so's to clear the lip of the fender. OTOH, I thought
camber was induced at the ball joint. If so, negative camber pushes the
bottom of the tire _out_, and does not pull the top of the tire _in_,
like you would want it to to clear that pesky fender. Please identify
the type of paint I am sniffing, because I am *just not getting it*.
Kinda like our rules buddy. I'd love to clear the fender a little more,
plus I bet neg camber helps in the corners, no? Waiting on bended knee
at the master's side, I remain, your faithful servant,
