Alignment work question for track

So I had my alignment done after the KW-V3's were installed. I'm about to put on the camber plates with Apex 18x10 squared setup with 275/35.

Should I do an alignment again before I hit the track due to the camber plate adjustments and wheel setup?

Will I have to do another alignment after I adjust my camber plates and put on my stock wheel setup after track day?

What do you recommend?

Yes, you need to adjust toe-in after adjusting camber.

Every time the camber is changed, the toe changes drastically.

Yes, you'll need an alignment after installing the camber plates.

As long as you don't go too radical with your track set-up, you should be able to run the same settings for street and track.

FWIW, I run 2.75 - 3.0 degrees camber in front with 0 toe year round.

In my experience, it's the combination of camber and toe (i.e., toe out) that eats up front tires.

Thanks guys. I'll just get an alignment after I install the camber plates and keep that setting when I put my stock wheels back on.
