As a baseline setup id go with Brian Berry's setup from the TM site or one of Darren Johnsons(Muppetracer/Daz) from 3hobby.net or TM.
Ive been working of Darrens and its been really good for me.
Go through teh build tips as well on 3hobby.

nobody runs positive camber because no car can work like that, so nobody bothers to place the minus sign on the number posted as camber, it's understood they are negative figures...

Positive camber can still be seen on things like tractors or at car museums the cars of the '20s often had positive front camber.

Yep - always read camber as negative. Positive camber would result in the car always loading up the outer edge of the tyre. At a minimum this would cause reduced grip as the natural inertia will increase the amount of roll to he outer edge and reduce the pressure on the inner edge. Worst case you will increase the chance of chunking tyres or increase the body roll due to sidewall movement. If you have been having handling problems and have been running positive camber then the beauty is at least you will have an easy fix to imporove things.
