Interesting to hear Skaife and Crompton on Inside Supercars talking about some teams using 9 degrees negative camber during static/setup with up to 13 degrees negative camber when loaded through the corners.

Well, 13 degrees unloaded as it'll be the unloaded tyre experiencing the increased negative camber. The loaded tyre should basically be 0.

I've realised this isn't correct. He may have been discussing the camber gain and the angle relative to the chassis and not relative to the road, but I don't understand how that would be relevant in cornering. It's probably relevant to mention that under heavy braking the tyres will also see a much higher camber angle which wouldn't have been good for the inside shoulder.

Skaife mentioned that once you apply the load and the roll center changes, the camber goes up...

Took me a bit to get my head around it....

...true, depending on the actual roll centre location. Ospi is correct in stating that the change relative to road is the more critical concept... if there was no camber change throughout the suspension travel, then as the car rolls, the outside tyre stands up straighter relative to the road.
