Good front & rear Camber for occasional track day and street driving.

Since I had to take the entire front wheel assembly off to install my pistons I will need an alignment. Also, I have a new set of Nitto NT-05's to put on when it warms up.

What's a good camber setting that will allow daily driving and hitting the road course one or two times a year.

My Track Miata has -3 in the front and -1 in the rear. Would that be good for the Z as well? With this setting I haven't seen any weird wear patterns.

Thanks.

Re: Good front & rear Camber for occasional track day and street driving.

I run around -2 degrees up front and about -1.3 degrees in the rear. Some might not be able to get that much out of it up front. This depends on what suspension components you have. It's a huge improvement over stock settings. A little toe in on the rear wouldn't hurt either.

Pfadt has a great chart on their site that shows alignment suggestions for various scenarios. It is under support/technical info.

I just had my car aligned this morning. They ran out of camber adjustment at -1.2 on the rear. I was actually shooting for a bit more.

If you lower the car a bit like half to an inch, will it limit your ability to align it like you guys want?

I checked out the charts. That's just what I was looking for. Thanks.
