in short, anytime a bar that is pointed forward is angled upward, drive/traction is increased on that wheel.
roll steer is also increased with more upward angle.
incresing the angle of upper bars will increase indexing.
increasing angle in lower bars decreases indexing.

more angle in the bars creates more forward bite from the amount of bar angle. The downfall to this is more angle creates more loose roll steer. You have to find the happy medium for your track, use bar angle to get it hooked up coming off the corners and use roll steer to get it to turn in the middle once you hit the loud pedal.
