With the NTC3 setup you will have to watch out that the toe in/out does not change due to a rear "bump steer" effect. I doubt it will affect it really tho (I dont own a NTC3)
going a degree in by turning the front pivot ball in is going to change the camber and the track because you've taken the bottom of the wheel IN and not compensated with anything.
To change the toe on a traditional pivot ball suspension you have to change the rear by turning both balls equal amounts - the front in and the rear out (to lessen toe) otherwise the track and the camber change. . .
and the same with camber changing toe and track. . . you're adjusting one vertice of a triangle which changes TWO of the edges, not one. Unfortunately the axis' you are trying to change don't line up with any of the edges and there's no adjustment along the actual axis.
With the NTC3, camber is along an axis with adjustments ON that axis. The toe adjustment is not along an axis but it has an adjustment that is directly inline with it.
This is why I like it. To adjust the camber, change the camber adjustments (I change the top only. . .keeps the track the same). To change the toe, change the toe adjustment.
And no bump steer that you wouldn't have in the front.
