What does toeing out the front arms on TC do?

for me I notice faster initial response and less steering off power in the apex with sweep. This fine tuning depends on the layout of the track. Its a subtle setting and is the last fine tuning I do to the front end.

Well, it turned out to be a beautiful and hot day for racing. Really wanted to race VTA but I had a long, last week. First my wife went to emergency Monday afternoon, passed out and mild concussion and sinus infection. Then, worries about the 2 hurricanes, if I had enough water and supplies, if my generator would start. Had to work on Fri, hurricane Issele day. Worring about my mom and her cat all by herself. But all in all everything worked out OK. Had to take care of things today, huricane delays.

Anyway, did Joe and Winston show up to race?

And you VTA guys, what ride height seems to be the norm at RWH and how much droop you guys run front and rear or does it differ from car to car? I have a ride height of about 8mm front and rear, +3mm droop rear and +3.5 front(thats the lowest I can get it unless I shim up the arm mounts). I have 1* front toe out, 3* rear toe in(seems like lot). Spec R does not give base settings.

See you guys racing next one!

Unhappy

I don't know if Wins10 made it out. I needed to help out G due to KRP closing.

He made it out. Couple of us talked with him for a few minutes. I thought BC got rid of the fee just to watch? All it does is scare away everyone. For realz....
