Default Alignment setting suggestions for track setup

I'm setting up my WRX for HPDE use (stepping up from a spec miata), and wondered about alignment settings (specifically camber) for the car. It's seen a good bit of autocross on street tires, and with camber plates set at ~3 degrees, it still murdered the outside edges of the tires and didn't touch anywhere else.
I can only imagine body roll getting worse with stickies, so I see the problem being exacerbated.

Car mods: Ground Control Coilover kit, stock dampers. 300lb/in springs, F/R. Ground Control Front camber plates in front. Stock wheel bearings, 17" wheels to clear Brembos.
Current alignment settings: 0 toe F/R, 1.5 degrees negative camber all around.

Can anyone tell me what appropriate settings for this type of setup would be? I'm unwilling to purchase a roll bar at this point; I'd like to run the car like it is, then modify further and watch the improvement. In the meantime, I'd rather not destroy tires.

I'm worried that by running enough camber to avoid rolling over the tires, I'll have absolutely no strait-line grip, effectively killing braking zones.
