Since there are so many variables that affect what you need for camber I would suggest buying a probe type pyrometer. That way you can see what your car needs and what you like the feel of. The temps will tell you what you need, but don't forget how the car feels. Its usually a balance between cornering on rails feel in the front and having no traction for braking.
After all of that, you may want to start with about 2 degrees neg and see how the car feels. A twisty course that you need little braking may feel better with more. Getting split times is the best way to see if you gain more in one area than you lose in another. You've added another way to out trick yourself so its all in how things feel for you.

On my first gen ITA car I run -2.5 camber, zero toe, and stock caster. I'm running Hoosier's on 13X7 wheels. This is what Jim at Gforceengineering recommends. I believe the Khumo's like a little less camber.
