For drag racing put as much positive caster in it as you can and keep it even side to side. With factory style a-arms that's usually around 3*. I shoot for 0 camber plus or minus a 1/4 degree and try to keep that within 1/4* side to side and 1/16" - 1/8" total toe. The camber isn't as important as caster so if I have to give a little on that to get the caster where I want to then I will.

Because it has been altered with a rack & pinion steering you will want to make sure to check the bump steer too. It's always a good idea to check it on any race car but when you alter the steering like that it becomes likely that it will have some bump steer. That in itself can make a tremendous difference with how the car will drive. Find someone that understands steering & suspension geometry to do the job. I wouldn't trust the average tire jockey with it.
