Unfortunately, merely using the dash switch does not 100% turn off VDC. Unless VDC is totally pulled and disconnected, t will intercede later while driving.

No, don't. It's for slammed cars to compensate for the negative camber and you want negative camber! Street & Track - I'd say go with something like -2,5 and -1,5, 0 toe front, slight rear toe in.

Just a quick comment on your camber settings: -3 degrees up front will serve you well at the racetrack. The rears don't benefit from as much negative camber, so shoot for -1.5 on both sides. These...
