Alignment Settings for Open Track FC

I'm running Tein (340f /250r) coilovers, 1" front swaybar, stock rear swaybar. 255 (9") wide front tires, 275 (10") wide rear tires.

Can someone give me a good idea on alignment spec's for track days. My previous setup was -1.5 camber up front, -.08 camber rear and zero toe. Ideas? Sugguestions?

Check with your tire manufacturer for recommended camber settings. With the Toyo RA-1's they recommend 3-5 degrees of negative camber. With my road course car I'm running 3 degrees negative up front and 2.5 in the rear. I'm running a miniscule amount of toe out as well. So far it hooks up very well, the tire temps are pretty consistent across the carcass and the tire wear is farily square. Ultimately tire temps and tire wear will lead you to the proper setting.
