I recently raced at the Wilmington Solo National Tour in my prepped 3800SC 88 Base Coupe. I am stuck in SSM due to the engine swap, and was on 225 Hankook Z214s all around. Finished with a 57.018 as my best time, which is good for the top 25% or so.

Car has poly bushings (of course), Koni reds and 400lb QA1 springs rear, Bilstein AKs and 700lb springs up front.

Alignment specs:

Front Camber: -2.3 degrees L, -2.1 degrees R
Front Caster: 5.7 degrees L, 5.4 degrees R
Front toe: -0.25 total

Rear Camber: -1.5 degrees L, -1.5 degrees R
Rear toe: 0.10 total

Car feels really neutral in the turns, with the ability to get the car to rotate at will with a blip of the brake. Mat it again and the rear hooks. I had to set my konis to full soft, which means I may be too stiff on the rear springs, or may need more camber in the rear. I can pretty much throw the car around and it is very composed.

I took several videos, these are my best run:
