Default ideal alignment

I was just wondering if any has changed the alignmet on their car yet? I am wearing out the outsides of my tires and I am going to have the camber adjusted some, I'm just not sure how much.

Any suggestions

Craig

Front:
Camber: -1.1 -1.1
Caster: 4.6 4.9
Toe: 1/16 1/16 out (1/8 total toe out)

Rear:
Camber: -1.2 -1.5 (fixed)
Toe: 1/16 1/16 in (1/8 total toe in)

Gives much quicker steering response and turn-in. Undresteer is reduced. Rather it stillundersteers a fair amount, but there is more grip before you get it to understeer. Setup works well for autox and street driving.

Toe-in tends to make the car more directionally stable. In front it helps the car track straighter. In the rear the effect is the same.

Front toe-out makes the car more responsive to turn in. Rear toe-out is good for making the car a touch less stable, killing some understeer. However, it's not for everyone - the car can be more 'snappy' and possibly unsafe, especially at higher speeds. I don't recommend rear toe-out for the track.
