question TC kline set-up guide

So below is the set-up guide from TC kline, and the parts that I'm on top of is the fact that my ride height is already perfect for me and I adjust the rebound and compression shock settings no problem for street, track and inbetween. My question is does anyone who has this, actually adjust the toe and camber when they track, and does it require a mechanic?
