    Since the new american style : STANCED is in action these days.

    You probably have seen cars with the tyres coming out of the car's body and sometimes the wheel is tilted to an angle!

    something like this

    well what you can expect just from looking at it...harsh ride, no suspension travel at all, catching the nose of the car on kerbs, potholes because its sitting so low..race suspension which has negative camber will make sure that the car is twitchy when theres a change in the gradient of the surface on which you are driving while also increasing tyre wear...!
