  My TR-6 is an occasionally street driven autocross car.
  For autocross I am running 8.5" wide rims with 225/45ZR15 Hoosier A6 tires.
  The street setup is 7.0" wide rims with Yokohama 205/50R15 tires.
  Front caster is 5.8 degrees
  Front camber is -3.00
  Toe out is 1/16"
  This car has no noticeable bump steer on the street tires or the bigger 
autocross tires, and does not dart under heavy braking.
  The bigger autocross tires do have a slight tendency to follow seams in the 
road, but otherwise this TR-6 is very stable and has crisp turn in as long as 
the loose nut at the wheel does not blow off the corner by charging too hard 
and braking too late.

  I run 1/16th toe out on my TR3 (which is almost as wide as a TR4). If I run
more than that it can be darty under hard braking. I did run about an inch of
toe out once (long story) and I went very fast that race. It did, however,
cord the inside edge of the tires, so I did not run that setting anymore.

I had to pull my steering rack for a rebuild so I need to string the car to
set the toe when I reassemble. Anybody have a suggestion as to how much total
front toe-out to put on a TR4 race car? I have the factory manual but there
no toe numbers given for stock, or otherwise. I'm thinking 1/8" total
