Took my car in for an alignment today and these were the original numbers: Before
LF Camber: 0.0
.. Caster: 6.9
.. Toe out 0.11"
RF Camber: 0.3
.. Caster: 6.5
.. Toe in 0.13"
LR Camber: 0.9
.. Toe in 0.08"
RR Camber: 1.3
.. Toe in 0.02"
1. Having the LF toe out and RF toe in is not a good thing.
2. Neither is 0.3 degrees cross camber in the front.
3. Nor is 0.4 degrees cross camber in the rear.
I still don't know what the stock alignment settings should be, but whatever they are people should get a good alignment shop to redo it in order to get closer to spec.

http://www.customalignment.com/ is highly recommended by many people. They're in Mountain View and have also done my S2000. Speaking of which, both suspensions are similar so what works for the S2K might work for the RX8 as well.

You shouldn't be too concerned with individual toe on the front wheels. This just means that the steering wheel wasn't perfectly centered when they did the measurement. The important number is that front toe is 0.02" in.
However, the rear toe should be equal on both sides or the car will drive crab-like.
