Toe Angle with RLCA Bearings?

Hey guys, been lurking and devouring all the content on this site for a few months. I really appreciate the wealth of knowledge here. Couldn't find this below question addressed in my searching so figured I'd ask.

I just installed RLCA bearings and toe link bearings in the knuckles and am contemplating alignment specs. Since rear toe in on our cars is at least partly necessary because of the deflection in the stock rubber bushings, should this toe in be reduced or eliminated with RLCA bearings? Is there a significant enough amount of geometry induced toe out in bump present that is also part of the reason for the toe in?

If anyone has played around with this and has some alignment specs that worked well for you with RLCA bearings that would be much appreciated! I'm trying to run as little rear toe as I can to help extend tire life daily driving.

Thanks in advance.

Scott

@Scootsmcgreggor I also forgot to mention some of us TMO member will be at Sonoma this Monday and on Nov 29th. Come out and play. Then you can go to Cortex and get your car sorted out. :D

Thanks guys! I’ll reach out to Cortex.

I can’t wait to get out on track. Just want to get tow hooks and a quick fit harness and I’ll be out there soon. I’ll see if I can get up there on the 29th to meet you guys anyways.

For anyone who may be searching in the future Cortex suggested with RLCA bearings to still run stock toe in for a dual purpose car or even more for track. This is on account of rear toe in settling the back end under power in corner.
