Would someone give up their camber/ castor degree numbers? I need to know- positive here, negative there, and so on. The track is 12 and 16 degrees banking with fairly tight turns (1/2 mile shaped like a paper clip). I have a metric car.

When setting caster it depends on if you run manual or power steering because with manual steering to much caster will make it almost imposible to turn right or countersteer. A good initial caster setting for manual steer is LF:+1.5 RF:+3 and for power steer LF:+2.5 RF:+5 and initial camber setting LF:+1 and RF:-2.5 to -3 Degrees. These settings work for me youll have to experiment to find the best combo for you.
