When a car begins to accelerate various bushings and suspension/chassis components deflect. Under normal driving conditions the flexing is negligible but when the car is launched aggressively it can cause significant toe changes which reduce the contact patch of the rear tires. This leads to a reduction in traction which obviously is not helpful. Toe rods set the rear wheels in a fixed position to help maintain traction.
