Question 84 GSL-SE race/street alignment questions.

I am getting an alignment on Saturday Jan 15th and have never done an alignment on an RX-7 before. The car is used as an autocrosser and commuter car.
I don't know what all is factory adjustable on this car.
The suspension is stock except for Tokico Illiminuna II 5-way adjustable shocks.

What I want to know is what are the best factory adjustable settings for autocrossing that will not screw up tires too bad on the street.
I run the car in the stock class so any adjustments must meet SCCA stock class rules.

Thanks,

Devon

I would go about 1/16 to 1/8 toe out. As much caster as possible within spec and as much negative camber as possible.

The most camber I could get was about -.5 of a degree.
I drive the car mostly on the street so setting too much toe out will destroy my tires and make it track worse than they did new.
Why do you think I should set it at 0 toe as opposed to a slight toe out (which is where the car is set now)?
