I left this out because I assumed people would read the article.

BTW, the delta psi I posted above is "cold" and on a dedicated track car so I would not recommend anyone use that as a starting point.

Also, PSC tires can easily handle over -3 deg of neg camber and perform extremely well, even without shaving. I certainly would not recommend over -2.5 deg for a street tire.
I was just quoting the part of the increase/decrease of pressure..you actually say to increase/decrease both the front and back all at the same time which is contradicting in itself...I think you were meaning to say to - Reduce Understeer decrease front and increase rear.

BTW great article you posted!
