(note- this isn't to say vertical is best at all times- optimum angle is not the same for braking and turning, or maybe even lowest rolling resistance.... So there's a lot of compromise going on....)
And let's not forget that the compromise changes again based on the type of tires you are running!

Thanks for all the feedback everyone!

Erik (above): the tyres are 185/70x14's.
Very plain road tyres.

Just beware the negitive camber will make driving on the streets a little less comfortable. I ran a negitive camber for years and finally switch it back to stock, hell a lot easier going straight now.

With an increase in negative camber, you should increase the castor as well. That will improve the tracking (going straight).

I have -2.5 on my car, and the blue car looks like more than mine (although perhaps harder to tell as I am on wider tires). Best camber is very dependent on use case. I was wearing the outside shoulders running -1.5 for a car that gets autocrossed and tracked on a regular basis, which is why I bumped up the camber to -2.5. On car that only sees the street, I wouldn't go past -1 degree.
