Default Camber link length

I'm trying to understand the difference the camberlink length will make on the handeling of the car. There are two mounting position for the link on my car, inside and outside. I know changing the length changes camber, but im refering to the mounting position on the chassis

I know that shortening the link will give you more camber rise, but how does it effect the handeling of the car. will it give you more/less traction?

At what stage will it effect the handling, corner entry or exit?

What type of track would you change the length to a longer/shorter length?

It will have an effect on the roll center and simply translated the roll of the car with the roll center settings and camber rise you are determing how the tire will grip with the surface. Actually the same question was recently in the offroad section:
