Hello, I recently purchased a 200sx se-r....I have GAB adjustable struts on the car and 205/50/15 "R" compound tires. I can't seem to find anybody that has specs on how to set this car up for high-speed track events. It appears that nobody either knows - or wants to say anything......Toe settings on the front are what I'm mainly interested in......please respond.

If you have adjustable camber, I'd adjust them at the track to about negative 2.5-3 degrees. I've run on auto-x courses and a high speed race track and after looking at the pics, -1.5 isn't enough. You can see the front wheels leaning out a bit but the rears stay perfectly perpendicular(beam suspension characteristic I'm guessing). So next time I hit an auto-x or track, I'm going to try about -2.5 degrees. As for the toe, I'd go with zero to slightly toe-in for high speed tracks. It's more stable, i.e. safer. For auto-x, I'd go with a little negative toe-out. Since I don't bother to mess with the toe between driving on the street and track, I just keep it at zero.
