How important do you think caster is in something like this? Off road only vehicle with full hydro steering. Decided for sake of cost and speed to not mess with the knuckles on my buggy. I'm at zero or maybe a degree or two of positive (rear lean) caster.I was thinking someplace around 6° and 7°, that sound reasonable?
What do you mean by worse steering? The only steering complaint I have with my 8 degrees of caster is related to the full hydro and no feedback from a mechanical link. I daily drove my jeep for 10 days this summer and almost grew to prefer the steering in my jeep over my truck around town.How fast does beefy wheel?
I'd understand 6-7 in a baja rig. I had 6-7 in herman (xj) and it was almost too much but man it was nice going down the highway. higher caster results in worse steering at slow speeds as well.
I'd start more towards 3-4, assuming the fastest he'll be sustaining is a hill-n-hole or a bounty run. That should be managable at the dunes and on road without much hunting.
I didn't realize they had internet at your retirement home.He calls it a #racecar but I never had an issue beating him in low range. :sonicjay:
Set it at 6-7 and forget aboot it.
