Setting camber easy?

Already searched this, btw..........

Is the camber easy to adjust on the FD. If so, I'm thinking of trying like -2 degrees for the track, and then switch it back when I'm done and back on the street. Or maybe leave it, since I don't drive too many street miles anyway.

I definitely am wearing out the outside edges of the track tires first, so I'm guessing this will help with that, and make me faster too.............

How easy is it? and do you guys normally set it up the same all around?

Thanks,

dp

Camber is adjusted on the eccentrics. I've seen it done many times while I watched the alignment tech align my car. The adjustment itself is easy to do. The trick is knowing how to measure it after having done the adjustment. I've seen a couple of local hotshoes with fancy DIY laser alignment tools (looks like two mini scales) ... but I imagine those cost more than I'm willing to bargain for. There's a way to do it with some string and a protractor; but I'm too dumb to figure it out.
