Flame suit on: Alignment Settings for a VW

Recommendations? So far i've been running no toe and about 2 degrees front camber to make the larger that necessary (subie sized) tires fit into the arches. I now have some more respectable sized tires so what should I run?

Whatever Jesse runs seems to be perfect, well at least good enough to humiliate a bunch of Subarus.

Did VW ever publish setup sheets for various rallys like Ford did?

You have your work cut out if your plan is to beat Jesse.

I try to get it close to 0 as I can, just by eyeballing it.

Who is Jesse?

Jesse Whitsell is a great friend and an awesome driver. Took his 140k old aba with a cam and chip powered, rolled at NEFR and hammered back to strait, mk3 golf to FTD overall at the last NER SCCA rally sprint at TeamO's place. made a few Subie drivers cry
