    sorry, as i under stand neg 1 detree is good for rear camber. but cant say on toe. maybe -2 or 3 i think for typical dirt track set up. -1 on street i think are the numbers ive seen. sorry i cant be more help. take these numbers with a grain of salt too.

    Heres a basic set-up for the marder or beetle, This seems to work very well on the marder.

    Rear toe: 1 degree toe in
    Rear camber: 1 degree negative
    Front toe: 1 degree toe out
    Front camber: 0

    2000wt shock oil in the front
    1000wt shock oil in the back

    I hope this helps.
