    Is this much R/F negative camber typical when in corners ? It seems excessive to me ..

    looks like there's a couple things going on in that front end. yes, it's a bit of camber going, as you can see it in the LF as well. the biggest thing is that the tire is rolling under on the RF making it look more pronounced. and the car as a push....

    Your observations are correct. But I would suspect that Marshman is turning way too sharp for normal cornering. It looks to me like he is making a tight radius turn while coming off of Turn Four at Milwaukee in order to enter the pits. If he was continuing to run fast and stay on the track the camber change would not be as excessive as it appears in the photo.

    It sucks to go out drinking this time of the year when it could be 70 one day and 35 the next day and you forget to put the top up.

    I don't think there is any camber change. It has a straight axle.
    Back in the 50's & early 60's positive camber was normal.

    here is an example of camber change "at the footprint".
    Early IFS cars didn't have low "instant centres" so the wheels stayed constant with the frame. If the body rolled the wheels also leaned over.

    That reminds me of what a small plaque said that my mom had many years ago.
    "Its not the ice that makes you slip its what you mix with it".
