Tracking how often should this be done?

Hi Guys

just wondered how often everyone carried an alignment/tracking on their vehicle?

Also is this part of the optimization service?

Once a year, or when the tramlining gets a bit much.
Can't remember the last time mine was done.
Basically, if it pulls and brakes in a straight line, and the tyres aren't unevenly worn, why change it?
In fact, my car was totally awesome from the factory. The first wheel alignment monkey to get his hands on it completely ****ed it, and it's never been any good since.

Mine was free at each service for the first 3 years - part of Nissan deal I think even though my car didn't have the service pack.

I do mine before every track day. Just because I like to tweak the settings and like going to the alignment place for a coffee
