toe=lower speed

well i have skied before and i wont lie(i suck) but the begginer stop is shaping your skis like a triangle (pizza as my trainer mentioned) and i found that addidng more cam will push out the back of the wheel possibly slowing it down wen i get and install my awd kist i will test different cam and come back here with results

I don't know why your calling it "cam", but what you described is called "toe".

no, he's referring to camber which means the top of the wheel is tilted inward or outward. toe refers to the front of the wheel pointing in or out.

here's an explanation of toe, camber, and caster: http://www.ozebiz.com.au/racetech/theory/align.html btw, the last picture depicting the camber examples at the bottom of the page, when they say (TOP RIGHT), they mean (TOP LEFT) and vice versa

in the xmod, the front wheels exhibit no camber and slight caster. toe is adjusted with the different tie rods. in the rear, because of the simpler suspension design compared to the front, the suspension induces increasing camber as the wheel is pushed up

With that analogy you were talking about camber and toe.

if ur talking about camber i dont think it would affect speed. and toe... it wouldnt make much of a difference on xmods cause the tierods allow alot of play so they would be able to straighten out when you accelerate. might have an effect on awd?
