    Need some clearing up on Toe Angle

    I think the Toe Angle in the game is backward, right? I think they meant Toe-In Angle.
    I hope I'm not crazy but it seems like positive rear toe gives more stability, especially in a turn, the rear doesn't kick out as much when I give it positive rear toe.
    This really confuse me bcuz the tuning menu just says Toe Angle, so logically negative would be In and positive would be Out but it seems that it's Toe-in Angle they're referring to in the game.
    Can anyone confirm this?

    Neg toe is toe out
    Pos toe is toe in
    POS toe on rear will calm back end down
    Neg toe on front helps promote turn in
    Def don’t use neg toe in rear

    Omg... Have I had the concept of toe angle backward this entire time? My life has been a lie... thank you Forza...
    Thanks for clearing that up for me, you're right, Pos is In and Neg is Out
    I had it backward this whole time bcuz the slider in Forza says the opposite... and I took it for granted.

    Some AWD cars that don't want to turn can benefit from a little toe out in the rear.

    Toe out on front would be both more effective and a lot safer.
    Toe out on back will help send the tail out for sure and help low speed manoeuvrability but is not worth it due to high speed instability

    It's a trick some of the street-class (stock) AWD guys do in my sport. They aren't allowed to do much to their suspensions and toe-out on the rear helps them turn while on throttle as some of the AWD cars have a tendency to go straight under throttle. Toe out up front helps with initial turn in, but not as much after the car has "taken a set" and they want to power out of the turn.

    And while this can indeed make most cars evil, (RWD cars in particular) these are cars that are notoriously pushy under throttle. (My brother's first-gen STI benefited a lot from rear toe-out)

    It’s useful for auto testing, which I’m guessing is the sport you refer to?

    incorrect. neg toe is toe in and visa versa.
