i autocross this car and want to set up the alignment

Resolved Question:

My question is about my Mazdaspeed3 2008.
I autocross this car and want to set up the alignment on it to suit the driving environment.
I want to stay within the manufacturers specifications to be legal in competition.
So all I am asking for is the alignment specs.

Thank you,
Robert
