If you want more oversteer, since your car is dead neutral, keep everything the same except for going a little negative in the front, like -0.5 to -1.0 deg. That'll improve front grip and probably give you the oversteer you want.

-2.5° front, -2.0° rear should be a good starting point.

I ran something similar to that, -1.8 up front however. It handled amazingly well, but my daily commute trashed my tires quick. Gotta keep an eye on wear and make sure to rotate every so often.

I run -2.0 camber up front and -1.0 out back. What are your toe settings at right now?

For toe I run 1/16 out in the front and 1/16 in at the rears.

As well, what spring rates are you running?

-2.3 in front
-1.7 in rear

sway bar about medium

You also have to take into consideration the ride height in front and back. If you back is slammed too much you wont be able to get the rear to rotate. If the front is slammed you will prolly understeer. It will take some fooling around with

My car is currently set up to:

-3.0 Front 0 Toe
-1.5 Rear 0 Toe

HSport Comp Rear Sway Bar on Med stiffness.

Car feels VERY neutral, no pushing no oversteer

Everyone should also take in to factor tires, as a sticker comp will have an affect on desired toe and camber settings.

Indeed....on street tires, I would run more aggressive camber out front, but with my R888s (GG compound) I am back to the specs I posted earlier.
