Default Toe in and Toe theory?

Can someone give me a couple off tips on toe in and toe out and camber in + out?
Am i right in saying toe out gives more straight line stability but less corner respons?and toe in does the opposite?
I need a bit more turn in on my car.If i toe in a bit would that help a little?

You have it backwards. Toe in gives better straight line stability while toe out gives better steering.

Question:

If i adjust my track width for the front would that affect the Toe?

If so, does it means that i have to adjust the toe if i adjust my track width.
If I adjust both, theory wise, i would have more steering since shortening my track width already gives me better steering, I would have even more steering?

am i on the right track?

If you adjust the track with you must adjust the toe. A narrower front track will give more responsive steering as well but with the sacrifice of high speed stabillity.

Or just download the Xray Setup book, which is great for learning the basics of setting any onroad car.
