A lot of toe out, as when something is bent, can cause all kinds of erratic handling. However the car will usually turn Ok, it will just dart all over the place down the straights. If you are toed in it will normally push badly on entry. I run 1/8 to 3/16 out normally.

Sounds like you may have a brake balance problem? Try to dial some more rear in it.

Don't think your toe setting is the problem as long as your about an 1/8-1/4" out.

-Make sure your getting the car "set" good upon corner entry.

-Try a little more leftside weight percentage.

-You could decrease your left front spring rate. Maybe some of the dirtworks guys would have a better idea if that should be done or not?
