Re: [DMCForum] steering geometry - new question



Forget everything I said about radius, but my numbers were correct for that
method.  That would just work to set toe to CL of the car not wheel to
wheel.

This entire conservation is point less anyway cause a car must be reliable
drivable before the tires can wear.  And we all know that the Volvo Penta
marine engine built by ford cant go more than 20 miles with out a problem...
