First and foremost, this is an awesome thread, and thank you Lucid as I have been tracking your reviews/comments on good track setups on multiple threads.

Do you find the extra negative camber really increases wear on your street tires?

Now to a bit of OT: your 265/295 setup, that is on your track setup not your stock 19s street setup correct? If its the stock 19s, aren't those tires too big for stock wheel thus creating bubbling/bulging at the edges and leading to lest responsiveness on turn in/lane change/etc?

Thanks to everyone contributing to this thread, very informative for those of us with little experience with adjusting our toe/camber for tracks time.
