Sorry for the extremely delayed response Wask, I completely forgot about this thread....

Anyway, this is the setup I use for hard surface running.

Camber: -1 deg
Caster: 4 deg
Toe: 0 deg
Anit-roll: 0 deg
Droop: 7mm
Ride height: 5mm
Sway Bar: hard
Springs: white (320)
Shock Angle: 18 deg

Camber: -1.5 deg
Toe: 2.5 deg
Anti-squat: 0.8 deg
Droop: 6mm
Ride Height: 5.5mm
Sway Bar: hard
Springs: gold (340)
Shock Angle: 27 deg

I use both rubber and foam tires on asphalt. A reasonably hard foam works well on asphalt.

Depending on the track layout, whether it's long and fast or short and twisty, you will likely change the car.
Front toe will greatly affect stability and steering response. You really just need to play with the settings and find something you personally like.

I had been running alittle more camber than that in the front because I was still on stock wheels with different rubber. I'm picking up some hpi Superstar wheels as soon as I get a hold of some cash (god damn motorcyle tires). Any particular tread pattern you like besides hard foam ?

I typically just run slicks when I run rubber, but I have used the HPI X-pattern tires and thought they were pretty balanced on handling and wear
