The Germans went to negative camber way before the US did. Negative camber is the only way to go for daily drivers, and all cars. Tire wear is superior.
There is not 1 downside to negative camber on a street car.
One of the original reasons for positive camber was the wheel bearings. The inner bearing was larger and could take more load than the smaller outer. Positive camber shifts the weight to the inner bearing. This was in the very old days.

7.2 is hard to get. It must of taken him over an hour. and -2.2 is probably a tad excessive. I'm at -1.8, and will reduce it some. -1.8 is visible to the eye. Can't imagine -2.2 :)

The Moog offset shaft is great for negative camber. You flip over the shaft, opposite of what Moog tells you. and you can reduce the shim stack by .15" I'm running about 1/2 degree negative now, with a bare minimum shim stack.
