Yeah that is to change the camber of the wheels. It's going to take a while to find the best balance between tyre wheels, straight line stability and "turn in" and initial cornering feel/response as these things can be either slightly or massively affected when changing camber values. Now that vehicle chassis are stiffer with less flex and everybody is running larger tyres with stiffer sidewalls there’s less tyre distortion so generally road cars aren’t running much camber at all these days, they get there steering response and turn in from how the castor is set. But as a general guide it's ideal to run just a slight bit of negative camber on the front and either dial the rear to a neutral "0" or just a touch of positive I’ve run both and it make the back of the car follow and turn in better.
