Re: [DMCForum] Re: steering geometry - new question



I used radius not diameter cause I considered the center of the wheel to be
the 0 point, so the fwd half would be + and the aft just be - the same
number.

I did it this way cause the gages I have seen only measure from one side of
the wheel at a time.

Using 23inch for wheel diameter I got an angle of (3mm/584mm)*57.3=
0.29 degrees, so I guess I agree with Jim.

I thought you were supposed to use the rim diameter, instead of the
wheel diameter.  Is this wrong?  Using 15inch for rim diameter, I
came up with .45 degrees.
