I know nothing about shimming the camber but gratuitous photos of attractive ladies will ALWAYS get my attention, thanks for posting.

You probably will struggle to get more than about -1.5 degrees camber which possibly won't be enough for track use. My car only goes on track once or twice a year so the settings are a compromise, but are here;

Front - camber -1.5, toe parallel.
Rear - camber -1.2, toe + 0.5

great. thanks. that is a start. will prob just stick sport cup 2s on. that will probably make more of an impact that anything else.

I track a fair bit but also daily the car so just maxed out the front without adding shims. The Cup 2’s like a lot of negative camber and low pressures. I wear the outer shoulders quickly because I can’t get the camber they need, which is a minimum of -2.5 to help with wear. The better solution is Toyo R888R. They do well with normal camber and last much long than the Cup 2’s.

what did you max the front camber at? any toe changes? what about the rear camber?

with the 4S i start at 27 pre stint and they heat to 33-35 and do well.

I was looking at the Toyos, wanted to try them, but I know the load rating is lower than the Trofeos I use. Also saw some comments on not using them on an R8 unless it is lightened. How has your experience been with them? I'm using 325 x 19 on the rear and the Toyos load rating is the same, but the front I am using 245 x 19 and it is less than the Trofeo and that is my concern. I have felt my fronts feel like they are rolling in the corners if my pressure is too low. That scared me away from the Toyos.

Here’s my track alignment specialist. She really good but a bit expensive.
