Technically running them inward toward the center will put more loose roll steer in the car (steers rearend to the outside during body roll) but unless you have a lot of angle in them you would prob never notice it.

You have to be careful how much angle you have because as the car rolls over through the corner the rod ends can bind and cause problems.

I played around with it this season and didnt really see much difference. In the end i started running my arms fairly straight to give the rod ends plenty of freedom. I think it was Hoffman race cars swears that running them toed in at the front will give more sidebite, but like i said couldnt see much difference.
