Because it flat out works better for SoloII. Increasing rear roll stiffness is well and good for making the back end slide around since it also unloads the inside rear wheel more, reducing available traction even more. Adding toe out in the back results in the outside rear wheel helping to "steer" the car around while the inside wheel is planted a little better. More power makes for more steering effect, which points the car faster so you can unwind faster and get forward bite quicker without waiting for grip to return.
