That's true of the camber arc's effects on the toe-control link..

But what's supposed to happen in the hubs pull slightly forward under acceleration and the toe link is then slightly too short, cancelling the natural tendency to toe-in under acceleration.

The converse is true under braking, as toe-in is meant to increase stability.

Clever things, these multi-links.
