Just to be clear about the caster...More static caster is better than more static camber! Why? Because caster does not affect camber in a straight line. But, when you turn the wheel as you are going into a corner the camber angle becomes dynamic and increases as you turn in. So as the car leans into the corner more camber is added.

This is perfect for all cars (street & track) but really benefits those who drive on the street as well because you don't get the darting the car likes to do when you have a lot of static camber on the street.

And you are correct EdwinM3 - Once the caster is set you do not need to adjust it because of the reason above.
