The front end alignment spec I listed would be fine on the street. Might be a little hard to steer a very slow turn's. Would be better than a wobble.

Which reminds me.... what camber/castor would you have on a car that you plan on running as a street/strip car ?

You need at least 6 deg negative castor for straight line racings with 0 deg camber and ;D 1/16" tow in on a race car.
