What are you using to check front toe? If your car can turn more to the left than to the right, and toe is the same on the sides, and your radio has ATV/EPA set even on both left and right. your servo linkage is off, and needs to be adjusted along with front toe to bring it back.

The rear will look wider than the front due to the angle of the tires if you're just eye balling it.

try 1.0 toe out, in the front and 2.0 toe in, at the rear.

Barring everything else is correct on your car, your problem could be a side-to-side weight issue. Did you balance your car side-to-side? Even if using NIMH 6cell packs, you probably need to add weight to the right side.

You might want to chk your bulk heads . they might be bent just enought to make the car track funny .. You can always adjust your toe / suspension any way you want and it will look ok . butt you have noticed your problem after your adjustments .. also chk the spacers on the hindge carriers .. they are very close in width and you might have one in there that doesn't match .... hope this helps ...
