Hello Randy, Welcome to the Forum. There is no one optimum setting, it varies with track banking,roll centers,springs, weight, etc......

In general, for camber gain, you need 1 1/4 to 1 3/4 neg gain on RF ...... 1/2 to 3/4 pos gain on LF....... For a high bank, use the lower number......for a flatter track go with the high number......This will get you in the ballpark...

Keep the caster gain to a minimum.....there are those who like large caster gain and splits.....because of the wedge properties.....but if you can get your camber gain correct it's just not needed.......

Good Luck,
