+ 1 1/2 LF, + 3 1/2 RF Caster (- 1/2 deg less without power steering) -- The split shouldn't be more than 2 degs.

+ 3 deg LF, - 2 deg RF Camber (We run a similar track and our tire temps show the liking to these numbers. Many'll run more (-) RF but my notes don't show the need for it. However, rule of thumb is you never want the RF to roll into the (+).)

Stock Car Dirt Track Technology suggest for camber...

+ 1 3/4 LF & - 3 1/2 RF so...you know.


Good luck with practice...
