I'm no Jilles (great result at the 'birds by the way
2 in a row!), but from my experience, wider is more stable, gives less initial turn-in, but maybe a little more corner speed. Narrower gives more initial bite into the corner, and reacts faster.
I played with this recently, couldn't get the car to bite into the turn on a small technical track until I went from 1mm to 0.5mm axles spacers.
