Default Grado RP VTA... nose up or nose down?

Are you guys running your Grado cartridge with VTA set parallel, nose up, or nose down?

No longer using a Grado, but I've had several - most recently a Platinum Reference. I found that the best overall performance seemed to be with the cartridge parallel to the record surface.
