metric chassis?

speedway65, with 5 degree caster split,
does it make it hard to counter steer?

We have a car loose in teh middle once and put a little more ackerman in it

Or you can try a little more caster

In our case it seems the car is set up so well and the drivers style is more suited to this setup.And having a steering quickner helps too.
