You have to collect data. The numbers don't lie.
Very true. I didn't get really fancy one because I do not have enough knowledge or money to play with all those settings the right ways.

Corner balanceing is a real good way to set up. The lower you go in a corner the lighter that corner will be making the other three corners heavier. Just leave some room for weight transfer

thanks!
You forgot a couple (assuming a Focus ST):

ISC N1 (http://www.redstartracing.com/ford/i...-focus-st.html)
BC Racing (http://www.bcracing-na.com/br-type/)

Both go for < $1K and are adjustable in Rebound and Compression, and allow for 3 degree of camber change.
