Camber front: -2.0
Camber rear: -1.8

Toe front: 0
Toe rear: 0

Caster: Not 100% sure off the top of my head but it is maxed out ~5-6

Suspension (ie coilovers): Bilstiens with GC sleeves 550/350 at 12.5" F / 12.75" R

No aero. Stock '99 motor.

Works really well IMO for the price. The 0 toe is great for wear, especially after you get the tires heat cycled.

Car weighs approx 2400lbs with driver. Racing beat tubular race front sway bar, and some unknown red rear sway bar on full soft(assuming it's the 5/8" Racing Beat solid rear). 750/450 spring rates. The car is mostly neutral with this setup.

+1. We came to the same specs independently. Emilio knows what he's doing.

I'm -1.8 all around, I'd like to get the fronts closer to -2.0 next time, and remove some caster cause I'm a weakling.

Can someone explain to me why the street miata alignment has more toe than the race alignment? Does it help stability or does it somehow lower tyre wear?

Toe in is for stability at highway cruising speeds. Helps make the car track straighter with less input.
