Got my alignment today. Major improvement. I ended up going with slightly more aggressive specs, adding a degree of camber and I cut out about 44 degrees of toe in the rear and added .8 degrees of caster. New alignment:

Front
-1.5 degrees camber
6.5 degrees caster (max)
0 degrees of toe

Rear
-2 degrees camber
16 degrees of toe (was going for 12 degrees and had miscommunication with the tech)

Going from 1 to 2 degrees of negative camber in the rear changed the visual of how the rear tires sit, but not the fronts as much. I think I should have increased the front camber to -1.7 or -1.8, but ended up matching the motoIQ AP2. I'll probably increase the front next time. Overall the car is much more lively and sharp. I had been considering getting a CR steering rack but I don't feel I need to now. Also, the car turns more easily, which I thought it wouldn't do to the extra caster. The front toe must have been screwing with this, because now it turns quickly and steering feel has increased. It's just quick and lively, especially at speed.

Great bang for the buck improvement.
