Default Alignment Specs for best handling

Im trying to get a good starting point where to start. I searched and couldnt find anything about this subject. Everything on suspension is adjustable.

Im looking to see what alignment specs people have used for best handling.

Camber, Cast etc

Best handling will be pretty subjective since it depends on a number of variables and driving style. I don't know how much negative camber you're willing to go with, but I have pretty good results on a street setup with -2.3 up front and about -1.4 in the rear with 8 degrees of caster. Toe is at 0 for now.

definte best handling?

for minimal wear n tear?
for daily?
for street?
for fun spirited driving?
for track?

minimal to 0 for less "tracking" of the tires on rutted roads. i find that having the rear toes in just slightly and front toes out just slightly give the best "handling" for cornering. however too much toe and camber will obviously kill your tires. caster is subjective since its not really adjustable on our cars.

ill try to find my latest alignment spects, its not perfect due to height and suspension setup,

Its a daily. I guess spirited if anything.

The slammed deal has gotten real old already. I want something more fun to drive.

The SPC UCA has adjustable caster.
