Currently running ZCP wheels with stock tire size Bridgstone RE-11's for
both street and track.

The guys at my shop told me that each time you change the camber
plate settings it will need a full alignment $ because the toe will also
be changed. If this is the case it probably makes sense to set things
once at a medium street friendly negative camber, I was thinking maybe -2.2 front would be good start?

I'd love to hear any recommendations for double duty camber settings.

Do you guys switch your camber plates back after each
event or just run higher neg camber on street?

Cheers,

What you want is -1.5 for street use, mark it, then push them all the way in for track days. Jacking up the entire front end will make the camber adjustment much easier. If you are looking for a double duty camber setting -2 is it, it is as much as you can run without eating up the inside edge of your front tires too badly.
