The inboard toe block affect how the car drives into a corner. More toe out means the car changes direction quicker, and also has more front end bite.

Personally I've only ever used the 2.5deg block. So I can't comment on how it affected my car in relation to the different tracks I run at.

I have always found that...

More inboard toe out = More initial steering (into corner) less mid to exit.
Less inboard toe out = Less initial steering (into corner) more mid to exit.

Hope that helps,

Phil.

Just installed my new brushless.
It's a tight fit, but this will not be a problem for too long, as I will run it with 6 cells just to see how scary fast it is and then it will be always run with 5 cells as per the new European (EFRA) rules, so I will try different electronics configuration.

Thanks Leonard.

First of all, please edit your post and delete the links of my pics, so you avoid making huge posts.

I just happened to be at the right place on the right time. It's still hard to get. Also the sticker is made by me.
