    You will need camber plates to get decent negative camber in the front, and it is not a major cost if you do M&M ones. Adjusting the car with them to get a more balanced track alignment , will cost you less in the long run, as you will get better wear out of your tires on track. Front heavy cars like our Mustangs , have a tendency to chew the outside edge under tight cornering and going to a negative camber adjustment ( even if you just do a more moderate set-up half way between street and track) will result in sharper turn in and a better contact patch when racing. If you have 10s don't waste your money on dinky 275s , as they frankly are too small in my estimation, for track work. Get a set of 295s out of the box , the price is not much different an they will probably wear better --- logic is the answer here, heavy car , more tire to hold it up.

    @Bill Pemberton That makes sense. I understand about camber plates for the front. What about add negative camber to the rear?

    Definitely some negative camber in the rear also, since you have an independent
    rear suspension and not hard when doing an alignment.
