It would depend on the track. -2░ could be a starting point, is it an oval or a road course?

It depend what tires you have on your rims, and how stiff your suspension is. Racier r-compund tires need lots of camber, and slicks even more. I┤m maxing out the negative camber at around -3 degrees. Did a huge differens in front end grip. On my track tires of course.

Tires are a determining factor, as much as anything... usually the tire manufacturer - if it's a race/track tire - will be able to give a recommendation of at least a range.

That said, with a fairly stock suspension, you'll probably want as much camber as you can get. I run about 3 degrees front, and about the same in the rear.

Yes, you can adjust the rear to. But not as easy as the front. Search the forum and i think you will find lots of threads.
