My EV trike (tadpole config) is pretty sensitive to toe in. It is
indeed squirrely-er when it is most efficient. You want toe in so that
when one wheel hits a bump the other wheel tends to center the vehicle
not send it wide. You can really feel it of it is neutral or toe out.
I think you always want a little toe in, never anything else, and only
a little tiny bit, no need for the complication of on the fly
