Does anyone know what the best way to set caster and camber on a metric car is? And what the best angles would be for a 3/8 mile high banked oval track.

34, do you need some numbers to start with? or how to do it? what sot of upper a-arms do you have on it?
I'd start camber lf-0, rf +1deg(top of tire in)...rub chalk on the sidewall and this will help you dial it in. unless of course you have a tire temp gauge
caster lf+3, rf+5
always set toe last
toe.. center the steering box, set the lf so it is straight in line with the lr, now adjust the rf to 1/8" toe out

LF -1 1/4 RF +2 camber LF 4 RF 5-7 caster. The more right front caster can load the left rear.

I am running stock A arms and well everything I've got is stock. I really need to know how to set it up. As far as chamber and caster how do you get a starting point as to where you start measuring from?
