Default Rear toe for carpet touring!?!

How much rear toe in/out do you all run? I just started touring car racing with my tc4 and it has a -2.0 rear toe block so I'm guessing that that means it has -2 degrees of toe. Right?

Depending on personal preference, most people run between 1.0 and 3.0 degrees of rear toe in. Not too familiar with the TC4, but usually -2.0 degrees refers to 2 degrees of negative camber (top of tire leaned in 2.0 degrees).

People just refer to either toe in or toe out. You run toe in in the rear, and no toe to slight toe out in the front.

TC4 on rubber tires? I would recommend either the 2.5 or 3 degree block. If this is for VTA start with one degree of camber in the rear, 2 degrees on the wider VTA tires can be a bit much.

Yea, just watch your tire wear, the rears should wear just slightly inward. Most of the time 2 degrees camber is too much for VTA tires. Now regular TC rubbers or RCGT tires both of which are more narrow 2 degrees camber is a great place to start.

I would run anything from 2-3 degrees for rubber tire racing. I don't know about VTA tires though. Look in your manual or on AE's web site for your manual if you don't have one for what the numbers mean. On my TC3, if I remember right, the numbers on the back carrier along with the numbers on the front carrier (for your inboard rear hinge pin) added to make your rear toe.
