Suspension settings advice please!

Hi folks, I was hoping to get some advice / opinions from other 916 owners about camber and toe settings after a suspension change, with a view towards a forthcoming track day also.

I have just changed rear springs and shocks and new tyres all round. This I appreciate is not ideal, as new rear suspension and old front suspension is going to create some imbalance but as I have the chance of a FREE 4-wheel alignment tomorrow, I thought I would ask what you chaps feel is a good compromise for a dry-day use / occasional track day car?

The suspension has just been 4-wheel aligned to factory settings by Protyre but as I have another free opportunity elsewhere tomorrow and the car feels slightly less planted after the rather extreme rear negative camber has been dialled out by new susp. I thought I would ask.
(I'm more interested in great handling than tyre wear)

Thanks in advance for any opinions.

BTW - standard Suplex springs and TRW dampers were fitted on rear, front is standard factory. Tyres are Goodyear F1 Assym 3's.
