Shoot me a pm for the mount and I'll hook you up.
Since you are dealing with a road car that was designed for cornering, straight line performance is not its original intent. Not to say that it doesn't go straight well, it's just not designed exclusively for it like a drag car.
Roll center adjustability is more relative to turning from side to side but is still somewhat important for straight runs as well. It would be best to stick with the stock setup which has a fairly low roll center (more grip) and possibly go with reduced toe in for the rear (1* or 2*) should be good and no toe out in the front.
Use the 2 or 3 dot arm mounts in the bottom holes for starters. This will allow the chassis to be more compliant from side to side, giving you decent grip.
I take it that you just want to do speed runs for starters?
I can assure you that it will get old quickly then you will yearn for the road course. Lol
Oh yeah, I almost forgot... Use more caster in the front end as this should reduce initial turning response. I think AE only makes 4 and 6 degree C hubs.
