Default HELP! Rear toe-in

What is the major difference on a 2 Degree and 3 Degree rear toe-in? specially, how does the car perform at the corner under these two settings?

Add to that that, more toe in increase initial steering. More toe stabilises car by making the rear end want to steer out of a slide.

Also, the more toe you run, the more drag on a car down the straight as the tires are scrubbing inwards. Changing the toe can increase your speed to a noticeable degree. Try changing it in small increments. Usually half a degree..

Use as little as you can get away with.


And er.. why do you call yourself "Miu Miu"? LoL!!.. i assume you're a guy. (isn't everyone a guy here?)....Should it be "Gor gor"?

Taking away front droop will help with on-power steering.
