Default Inboard/Outboard toe

What is the advantage to adjusting them seperately?

the outboard adjustment isolates the change in toe angle, and its effects.

the inboard adjustment also changes the way the chassis rolls, as it will have a fore/aft component to the chassis roll instead of just lateral. this adjustment can also affect your wheelbase if you don't compensate for the arm sweep, by respacing the arm position.

the actual effects will differ from car to car, or setup to setup. knowing how they affect the car will let you determine which way is better at any one time.

eg: your car my be rolling over the nose, and loosing rear bite as a result. by changing the rear toe at the pins, you may aggrevate the condition by causing more dive due to the new rear pin angle. in this case the outboard adjustment may be the more suitable solution of the two.

Makes sense, so the inboard toe and anti-squat settings on the pin holders work hand in hand. I am measuring total toe when using a setup station right?

you run 0 degree on wheels the inboard front mounts (.5,1.0,1.5) aide front wheel/wishbones to enter the corner more smoothly & help the car go in better with out asking the wheels to help you

if you run toe out on wheels this makes car very nervous coming on to & on the straight ,might not track straight & self right it self

inboard toe blocks (front) sort all this out

i run .5 thats enough for the BD

Inboard toe gives you some reactive caster(caster gain).
