Steering geometry
« on: 18 September 2022, 11:45:53 am »
What settings is everyone using for front suspension  ?
I'm using, 
13° K.P.I.
5° caster
1° negative camber
Ackerman steering.
The older I get, the faster I was !

I'm using the standard Gemini Kart spindle and yoke on a bespoke upright to my suspension. https://www.geminikarts.co.uk/product/cyclekart-front-axle/
16 degree KPI
6 degree castor
Akerman as per Gemini
and at the moment I have positive camber by about 1 degree. This is adjustable in my set up and the least of the worries with the shape of the tyres.
The whole shebang is set to 3mm toe in.

... All of this is yet to be fully proved.
