This was run on two heats of 6 minutes each, at -4 camber. The other car ran four heats with same setup and looks more even but similar - inside of tire is more used up.

Too much camber maybe? Drop to -2?

Let me know when you find the answer...

Seriously, I do not know. I start with new tires on the kitchen counter with batteries loaded and adjust until all the tires are flat on the counter when I roll it. 90% perfect will be some imperfection in all tires.

I only get 1.5 runs out of tires. 7-9min I am done on the 6S Infraction. I juice the throttle from start to end. I ask myself why I balance them, knowing what I will do.

Wise checking and being up on it (y)

I don’t know how well it would work on a tire that small, but for 1:1 sports cars we would run a few laps to heat up the tires. pull into the pits and immediately scan the cross section of the tire with an IR heat gun to see where the heat was. Very helpful for fine tuning camber and toe.
 
@parcou just wanted to let you know, I’ve been running -2 camber for the past 2 months and the tires have been wearing out more evenly. -4 was too much. Your mileage may vary. 😊
