Falkens came in and I have an appointment tomorrow to have them installed and an alignment done. DD car first, autocross car second, not afraid of rotating like crazy (Azenis aren't directional and all 4 are the same size).

So, alignment specs? I've heard -1 camber F, -2.5 camber rear, 7* caster F, zero toe? Anything better? I am willing to sacrifice tire wear for handling, but it has to be composed on the street (some events are 100+ miles away) and not "darty".

Try a Lanny alignment. Seems a good compromise between performance and street manners. Had one on my first Miata. Will do it again with my current one once I get around to it.

I reccomend reading this discussion here:

I plan on adding more front camber to my alignment, as you can see the front is lacking camber when the car is cornering hard:
