    It reduces understeer and frees up the car during initial turn in.

    nice article Mikko, thanks.
    Always tought toe in has the better initial turn-in peformance as the moment weight is beeing transfered to the outer tire it already has a slight stearing angle in the correct turning direction and gerenates lateral force as cause of the existent slip angle. While heavily negative toe in tire might not even point in the direction you want to turn.
