Can anyone tell me why my rear inside tyres are getting worn out like crazy?

its getting that bad, that it would be on wire on the inside, and still have legal treat on the outside..

I also noticed im getting bald flat spots (not bald all the way around the tyre)

I do drop the clutch alot, and wheel spin a fair bit, but i thought it should wear out evenly?

bent diff housing, my 67 xr is the same,negative camber style. no flat spots though. my housing has a 3mm bend in the rh axle tube and 5mm bend in lh axle tube. i had mine checked down at a diff place while the centre was getting rebuilt. you cant see the bend, unless its in a jig.
