My alignment (stock car other than H&R springs to gain camber)
-2°30' Front Camber
-0°05' Front Toe (each side)
-2°30' Rear Camber
0°05' Rear Toe (each side)


Wondering what alignment specs everyone is using for track?

I attached a pdf file for conversion form mm to degress so its all clear for us.

Yeah, Jackie is the man

Mine is NOT daily. But still would like to drive semi normal around town. Occasional weekend and track toy. i am going to see how much free camber i got with the springs, follow his toe

Ideally, i would make a few changes- track day- make adjustments and then make a couple more.
But i took a large bite with splitter, springs, sways bars, brakes, tires all at once.
shake down track is 3/3- if good weather.

Hoping i am not all over the place!

Invest in a pyrometer (needle, not IR) if you don't already own one. Your outer / middle / inner temps will tell you where your camber needs to be (also track dependent but still great for targeting). Definitely zero out the front toe, rear is going to be what you're comfortable with and what your driving style is.

How do we find out or what baseline do we start at? I think I'm going to start tracking my car.

baseline is always stock oem setup. then you start adjusting as how you feel on the track. my recommendation is, start /w stock setup get your level up (if you are novice) and then understand what you need to do.

What would be an appropriate alignment setup for a car that sees some street driving and 7-8 weekends a year of track time? I also plan to run a 275 square setup with vorshlag camber plates. Everything else stock

Why not sth like mentioned above?
Max -camber everywhere, 0 toe front and slight toe in on the rears.

That makes sense. After a bit more research and seeing Nibble’s alignment I’m going to give this a try:

front camber: around -3°
front caster: between 6-7°
front toe: as close to 0 as I can get
rear camber: -2°
rear toe: 1/8" total toe in

Good?
Stock suspension + verus camber plates as max.

it's amazing that you managed that much camber up front. with Vorshlag plates, the max i can go without rubbing is -2.5/2.6. I'm also running 275 square, so that might have limited my adjustment slightly.
