C5 Alignment - Starting Point Suggestions

This is a very much ongoing document that is currently in the early phases. I am trying to capture as much information here as I can for retention by the community at large along along with establishing baseline suggestions. I will also create a document with my dialed in suspension values you are welcome to play with as a starting point for a car that is driven almost exclusively on the track, but setup to be able to be driven to and from the track.

DISCLAIMER: Some of these values may contradict each other. There are a lot of combinations that work, and there are a lot of considerations such as control arm bushings, suspension configuration, tires, your local tracks demands, etc etc. A combination that will set a track record at one track may not nescessarily work well at another. Also your goals may vary. I for example want a well balanced setup that will work pretty darn well wherever I go. Other folks will adjust their suspension specifically to maximize the turns they can gain the most time in, knowingly sacrificing time in other turns, such as a clockwise track with big right handed sweepers and just the sporadic low speed left hander.
