    What are you guys running if different from FP issued specs.

    My car: Dual purpose car running DOT tires. Will be running Apex wheels 19x11s with 305s squared when the wheels come out. Aside from camber plates, everything else stock.

    I don't have an R but the recommended specs from Ford seem to be working well. If you're not doing a lot of track day and or not running the PSC2's then you can probably run less camber both front and rear.

    Thanks!
    I am reading all the online user manuals and supplements I can find in preparation for the delivery of my new GT350. I didn't see this info anywhere. Is it a separate sheet that came with car's owner manual, or is it online somewhere?

    FYI... I asked the question here to see if anyone is running anything other than FP specs. I ended up with FP specs. I have only run 1 track day but seems to be working fine. GL!

    Thats odd. I referenced my hard copy of the GT350 supplement on pg 44-45. Perhaps link I share is an older version of the supplement before FP issued the Track alignment recommendation.

    You can either take the screen I shared to your alignment shop. I had a Ford dealer do my alignment as they had very high-end equipment and a technician who's done camber plates before. Ford has access to the specs.

    Thanks for sharing your hard copy. The link seems to be the same as the current one on the ford site.
    Were there any other track instructions other than that one page?

    Only other FP recommendation is installing oil separators.

    Not sure on the pages but the alignment specs are in the GT350 supplement. While they don't mention it adding camber plates is a good idea.

    They're not in the supplement. The track settings are on a separate sheet that's tucked into the package with your owner's manual.

    Hmmm... maybe it changed in 2017. Mine's a 2016 and I have a separate page.

    It was in the owner's manual when I took delivery of mine, not in the supplement.

    I just got my free oil filter and wrench from Ford. In the box there was a new GT350 Owners Supplement, and sure enough, the track alignment settings are in the supplement, just as VoodooBoss says. So I pulled out the owner's document package that came with the car when I picked it up, and sure enough, there's the separate sheet with the track settings that I was talking about. So then I looked in the Owner's Supplement that came with the new car, and sure enough it's in that one too. So, now I have the track alignment settings in four places - three Owner's Supplements (this is Canada so of course there's a French one) and the separate sheet that came with the car.

    They're everywhere...

    Seems somewhat tame, is anyone running more aggressive with Hoosiers , for example?? Will have Hoosiers all the way around and installing M&M Camber Plates , so will be able to go beyond their set ups.

    Found Gary Gaspar's old settings and they sound pretty good, so went with those. Sad not to see the Shelby Stud Racer still around on the Forum??
