Btw if you go rear toe out you will get way better turn in. You may even need to use countersteer.

toe out = walk like a duck
think of your tire as a foot, the toes are further apart than your heels

as stated before this will give you better turn-in but at the expense of straight line speed and evil tire wear

does wonders on ovals and can help on a road course depending on the layout. since few road courses have a figure-8 layout, you'll always have more right turns than left so dialing in toe front and rear will give you an advantage if you have great straight line speed but need help geometry wise to get through the turns. a perfect example of toe-out is watch an ASSCAR race on a short track like Bristol or Martinsville, the cars will look like they are sideways down the straight. Hendrick got into some trouble because the bushings they used in their truck arms had so much play in them that the axle would shift 2 degrees under load in a turn. If you sucked at geometry in school, go back and learn as it's funny how that s*** comes into play when setting your car up for a race.

As long as the amount of toe is even on each rear tire you'll be fine. Also the factory some times gives tolerance for rear toe out. Its about inverse toe in.

Also keep in mind the outside tire is the one carrying the car in a turn. So if the car is balanced it will go straight. Or if you are turning the back will pull out. I've hit 165 with 1.5* of rear toe out on each tire in my prelude and it was 100% stable.
