i work at a tire store and align my car about once a month, so i can do it whenever i want.....
is there any alignment other than the stock specifications for optimum handling??
or is the stock readings the best we can do??
(mainly asking in preperation for first auto-x.....really want to beat my civic/integra buddies!!)
TIA.

These are the alignment settings for my B13 SE-R:

Front Toe: 1/4" out
Front Camber: -2.5 deg
Front Caster: 2.5 deg

Rear Toe: zero
Rear Camber: -0.5 deg

Unless you have camber/caster plates and or crash bolts you're probably not able to get the camber/caster settings like me.

On an otherwise stock car that doubles as a daily driver I would run slight toe out in the front (probably 1/8") and as much neg camber in the front (should be able to get about -1.0 deg on a non adjustable stock-like suspension). With the rear I would go for exactly zero toe.

Has anyone ever tried slotting the holes on their stuts to get more negative camber?

If you use the GC Camber plate you do not need to slot the mounting holes. The camber is more limited by the small center hole in the strut tower. You are not allowed to enlarge this hole. I have been able to get 3.5 degrees negative with the GC Camber plates.

Slotting is old hat, but illegal for anything SCCA offers. You're only allowed "factory tolerances".
