Default Help with Trans-Am setup

I'm putting together my back up Corally RDX, and was wondering some things for starting trans am.

-What should i run my toe in the front/rear?

-Shock weight front/rear?

-Also on the bulkheads, towards the bottom there are those two holes were the hingepin adj. blocks go, should i run those towards the bottom (closer to the chassis) as i would do as I"m running foam, or have them in the upper position?

Thanks, any help, or other suggestions as greatly appreciated.

You can probably start with a good rubber tire setup for the RDX. Usually, any car starts with 3* of rear toe. Also, most cars seem to run well with higher roll centers (hinge pins higher), but that is not always the case.

As far as shock oils go, again, look at rubber tire setups. 40wt. usually is not a bad place to start.
