Best all around setup snow to track (already have dedicated race car)

Curious if you raise he car in winter if it will flatten out camber and get it closer to 0. What else will change on alignment? Goal is to equally raise and lower without having to corner balance and align each time. I'm sure I can go 1" without much effect, but wonder if say I went 2" higher if it would actually flatten out alignment making car better for snow?

Looser setup
A little higher
No camber
No toe out

Track/summer street:
Tighter setup
Probably some toe 1/8 -1/4?? (not familiar with m3 track setup yet)

I do this on my e36 but it requires an alignment. You are correct in that you gain camber when raising the car, but the rear toe in particular always needs some slight tweaking when changing the height.

I suppose you could leave it and sacrifice tire wear, but it annoys me drive a car that is not perfectly aligned.

M3's are fantastic snow cars. Everything that makes them handle well in the track makes them handle well in the snow.
