Alignment results

Had the alignment done today, I would have liked more camber but that was the max the bolts would allow.
What suggestions would you have for the rear, is it worth shimming and would more camber be beneficial?

It is a track car only being driven to and from track

  Whichever has fuel
Do you think the car needs more camber on track? Or do you like the way it handles?

No point in setting it up just for Internet cool points if it drives like a dogs dick.

TBH I was not sure what to get so asked what he thought and that is what he suggested, anyway that can be sorted later on if it does not feel right but it is the back what I am unsure of what to do.
What toe setting would be good for the back?

Depends on what you want the car to do mate really. I'd try and shim the toe in on the n/s/r to match the toe out on the o/s/r personally as it'll help the car turn in faster. Downside is that it'll make it livelier at the back end so you'll need to be on the ball. I'd be tempted to put some more camber on the rear as well. Another degree + is enough.

Thanks for that, I don't want it too lively on the back yet(want to get used to the car first) so if I got some 10' shims and shimmed the n/s/r in to make it 0.22' and shimmed the o/s/r out to make it 0.18' would that be a bit better turn in but not as lively as just shimming the n/s/r in to match the o/s/r?

Yes mate if you can reduce the toe in on the n/s and reduce the toe out on the o/s you'll get some good results. It will still try and bring the back end round, but not as bad as if you went full toe out. I've ran mine with around 15-20 minutes of toe out on the rear and you look like a drifting hero! Lol! It was relatively predictable on the breakaway too in all fairness, but not so good when it comes to using it on the road and it deciding to flick the rear out at 3 figures.
