Default STU STi alignment question: rear toe out?

I see a lot of folks running some rear toe out to aid in rotation. Does this help transitional, steady state or both? How much/little are you guys running?

Does not help in transitionals stuff, yes it could help in steady state. I'm running 0 toe. Heavier springs in the rear and more negative camber up front are better ways of getting rotation.

Hi James:

I went from 1/8" front - neutral rear (last season) to 1/4" front - 1/8" rear (this season), and am liking the latter settings better.

I'm going to bring this thread back to life here because I dialed in 1/4" toe-in in the rear, not toe-out. My car still was a little lose in the transitions/slaloms but is more neutral now. On a skid pad (concrete) it pushes at the limit - 1.02 sustained G, 1.09 peak G which is OK by me. Set up: 8K/6K F/R spring rates, 27-29mm FSB set to 29, 22-24mm RSB set to 24, max -Camber with Cusco plates and OE bolts, and 1/4" front toe out. All and all it feels good. Do other STU STi's dial in a loose rear with toe-out because they push a little at the limit on sweepers?
