hi,

my car is on stock suspension and wheels. And ill be going for autocrosses and circuit races this week ..

do I need to get caster and camber plates ? do I need camber bolts ?

or should i leave it with its same original camber and caster setup?
 
Depends are what your goals are? With a stock suspension and the focus being autocross no you don't need camber plates as most stock/street classes do not allow camber plates. SCCA Solo street class (F-street) would be your best bet for a beginner. It allows the fewest mods and focuses on driver development which is the biggest part of any Hi Performance driving equation. Read the SCCA rule book then make mods based on your chosen class. Street Touring would be the next step up from Street if you insist on additional mods, but this class tends to be very competitive and currently does not favor Mustangs of any kind. With the purposed 2016 class/rules changes coming that may change. http://www.scca.com/pages/solo-cars-and-rules

Hows that camber on the stock boss ?? Is it good enough for autocrosses and curcuit races ?

Here we have no rules lol.. and my car would be oem suspension with 18x10 wheels

Apart from the real benifits of added grip up front etc, one of the key points is tire life!! You can cord a set of tires in a day if you have stock camber... I know because I have done it!! :'($$$
