Alignment Info for ITA/IT7 Race car

Hello again folks. I am curious as to what SCCA ITA/IT7 owners are running as far as alignment numbers and/or what they would suggest. A more compliant and forgiving setup would be ideal as the driver is a total W2W noob and will be attending Driver's School in April. I am unsure of what is currently on the car shockwise but they appear to be Koni and the car came shod with shaved Toyo RA1s. Thanks for any advice.

i eyeballed the factory IMSA car and kind of copied that setup on mine, and its really tame, it actually mildly understeers.

the big thing is that the car is not very low, and it may be slightly higher in the front than the rear. Zero front toe, -2 camber and whatever caster i'm getting without touching the tension rods

https://mzracing.jp/en/news/2467 notice how its just not low?

oh the rest of the suspension is just the old Pro7 setup, 350/175 springs, GC front bar, etc

Ah, thank you J9! I will be throwing the car up on stands and I'll catalogue what's currently on the car a little better. At this point I'm simply assuming that the car has been developed enough as it has been in continuous use as a race car in the South Atlantic region since the 90's (based on the car's SCCA logbook) up until 2003.
