Default Difference between inboard and outboard toe-in

With the release of ASC T4.1 and the B4.1, I noticed in the instruction manual that they put 3deg toe-in at the inner hinge pins and 1/2deg on the rear hubs? Most people who have the older vehicals just get toe'd-in rear hubs.

Can any explain the difference between using toe-in on the in-board vs using it out-board?? what the benefits would be in each?

Inboard toe changes affect the wheelbase.

From the B4/T4 thread...

Changing the outboard toe (hub carriers) is generally a mechanically softer change, and would be better suited for lots of sweeping corners. It also feels like a more subtle change.
The toe blocks also change the wheelbase of the car more than the hubs.
