Yes and yes.

^this. It doesn't take much torque to take your disc off plane.
While the amount of undesireable torque involved in OAT may be statistically insignificant compared to the torque you apply to the disc to propel it forward, its effect is quite significant. Small amount of torque --> large effect. Eliminate this torque about the throwing plane, and you get a more consistent releases.

OAT can result in a flat, smooth release yet an undesired release angle. Trust me.

I'm not going to get too far into this, because I know almost nothing about it, but I will suggest that there is a biomechanical detriment to OAT.

I always pictured off axis torque as imparting force onto a disc that isnt the direction you want it to go. Like when a forehander tries to throw a flat shot but ends with his palm facing down. Hes imparting some up/down unwanted torque in addition to the horizontal spin he desires

This thread is one of those. I initially looked at this thread and thought who cares!? I then proceeded to read every single post. Like a moth to a flame I guess.

Here are two other OAT factors.... Grip strength and disc warp.

Kachtz is the best example of this i can think of. His grip strength is so strong and arm speed so fast, he warps softer discs at the hit point... they change shape from a circle to an egg shape with a little bit of taco from his thumb pressure. And the discs flutter in a horizontal plane and sound like a bass fisherman's buzz bait through water.

There are pictures and video showing it somewhere on here.

You've got your rotation factor, now just plug in your vector coordinates.
