Original Toe was 0 on both sides
Changed it to 1/16" out on both sides (to get more "grip" in the rear)

For the front
Original Camber was -0.9 on both sides, so we just left it alone
Original Toe was 1/16" in on both sides
Changed it to 1/16" out on both sides.

That seems to have made quite a difference.

New (stickier and wider) tires in a few thousand miles will make a good difference too.

We'll see how it goes for the next while.
The rear toe OUT can create high speed straight line instability. I would prefer the rear toe IN 0.10.

The only place I've seen that being desirable is for FWD cars at autocross so that they will actually want to rotate.
