robk is right, it will give overall more steering. If you want the technical answer so that you feel a little more understanding here it is.
The outside hole gives less ackerman, what this means is that the inside and outside tire turn at a very similar rate (angle). Using the inside hole means that the outside tire will turn at a lesser rate than the inside tire. More ackerman means less angle of the outside tire leading to less steering.
However, sometime running the outside hole makes the car twitchy and difficult to drive consistently, especially on foam tires.
The forward and backward holes on the bellcrank do the same thing. The forward of the two holes is the most aggressive, giving "less" ackerman. It goes in this order
1B most aggressive
2A least aggressive
