My reccomendation;

Front - Full Stiff
Rears - 50%-80% Stiff

Front - 1 degree negative
Rear - 0 / .5 degree negative

Front - 1/16 - 1/8 toe out
Rear - 0 Toe

Front - Max Grip for your tires (measured with pyrometer or shoe polish)
Rear - 4 PSI less than front

Use your rear PSI to fine-tune the setup. If there's something that feels just a bit off, add or subtract a couple pounds in the rear as needed. Most of it's actually finding the most neutral place that you can and then adjusting your driving style to maximize it.

Good luck!
Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...
