Question about dragstrip vs street alignment...

I have adjustable coilovers on my car which have the front camber plates.

For my street setup it requires me to run a little more negative camber. For the track I could actually pull them in some but wasnít sure if it will throw off the whole alignment by doing so?

Basically can i just add positive camber using the camber plates and go to the track or would it need to be re aligned after messing with the plates.

Thanks in advance

For sure will affect the Toe spec

Most drag setups run very little negative camber, if at all

Never really looked into their actual specs but most of them have their C/o'rs mounted way outboard of the upper slot.

During the launch the rears really squat, lifting the front. The idea would be to keep that front tire square w/the track during launch

right thatís what I was afraid of. I think thatís been a big part of why my 1/8 mile portion sucks. Guess Iíll just have to get it re aligned after putting the drag setup on then re aligned with the street setup.

What coilovers are you running for your drag setup? I remember Buschur and other people were running Apexi N1's back in the day, recently saw they have deals for them brand new $875 shipped. Are those still good to use or should I go with the STM spec d2s?
