Default Track Crew Survey: tire temps and suspension settings

Can we please provide this information so I can hopefully set my car up right, the first time?
spring rate:
ride heights:
camber:
caster:
toe:
whee & tire width:(no 15x9 6UL, no care)
inside-out temp variation measured with a probe (not laser): x/x/x

Thanks,
Hustleratronicon

Every time I've decided to measure tire temperatures, my car blows up.

Hustlenut, my laptop was sitting on top of a clipboard with tire temp readings all over it, while you were tuning my car yesterday.

I'll show you them tomorrow or tuesday when your vmaxx coilovers are fixed. faggette.
