Depends on the car, depends on the tires, depends on the track.

Search the section, it's been covered before. The best way to judge camber is to check temps across the face of the tire with a pyrometer right after you come off the track (in the hot pits, if possible).

In general for my FC it's around -2.5f/-1.5r for the camber, 0 toe f/r, and as much caster as I can resaonbly find (6+). It seems that most of the real racers are running more negative camber than that. Some people like playing around with slight amounts of front and rear toe, trading off straight line stability for turn-in. On a slower "tighter" track, this is likely faster, although I'm not good enough to where I feel it would make any signiicant difference.

Toe makes a very noticeable difference.

I am running toe out in front and toe in on rear in my autox miata, which is also the DD.
