Has anyone played with changing the caster settings to manipulate your dynamic weight transfer at the track? I havent tried this, but I was wondering if you change them around to add RR bite on a tacky track as the wheels are turned and add LR when it slicks.....anyone done this? I wonder how well it would work.

I have played a little with it and couldn't tell much difference on the watch. Alot of it comes down to driver comfort. The other thing to be aware of, especially if your making changes at the track is that caster changes also effect bump steer.

Thanks wfo.....I guess it all depends on the track and conditions also.
