    Hi,
    We have an '89 GT raced on 3/8th mi asphalt track in stock class. What would be a good rear toe setting? I've heard rear steer helps. I'm willing to try anything to keep-up with the 2.2L and 2.5L Dodge Chargers.
    Thanks,

    Go easy on setting the toe out on the right rear. That thing takes
    some really high loads.
    As for a good setting, 1/16th inch out would be a start. Then tune thread
    by thread while watching tire temps and wear.
    If it helps try going the same on the left rear. Or maybe 1/32".

    rear toe

    When I bought my curent car he had it toed out on the right 1/4 inch and on the left side a 1/4 in it would rear steer like a bastard and for him it was fast but ive gradually taken some of it out and have found that im faster cause im not having to worry bout being sooo loose . I race on a banked 1/4 mile asphalt track. I have found that the lower the left rear pressure is the looser i become. on our track i have to run a "camber right rear" worn bald on the outside but tread on the inside so when the force of the car exerts on the right rear it rolls inward and i get a wider tire patch on the ground. So what you need to do is to try to get the car loose and then try to balance it out
