I have never been able to figure that one out. With toe in at the back and toe out at the front the car is stable. When you turn to the right the weight of the car is transfered to the left.

The left wheels will then influence the direction of the car and they both want to go to the left when turning right.

If the car has toe in at the front the front wheel will want to turn right more therfore adding steering force.

I tried this at the track. I went fron 5 deg toe in to 5 deg toe out at the front and the results were as expected and contrary to most peoples advice.

Toe out at the front will give less steering
Toe in at the front will give more steering

And also

Toe in at the back will give less steering
Toe out at the back will give more steering

Im not saying this is what you should do only thats what i saw when i tried it.

I now use 0deg toe at the front

Cheers
I think your driving style is the same with mine. Almost only 5% time close throttle when running. So ignore off-power steering usually.....

i just check previous lap times from previous races , 2 months ago with my 710(with a novarossi motor) i ran 27 laps at 10:36 this past weekend i ran with my fw-05r (ostr motor)28 laps at 10:07.54 so from those figures i say that the fw-05r out of the box is very good , now im starting to play with wight , suspencion settings and gear ratios , and motor!! It should get alot better
