more akerman.

My brother used to race go-karts, When the geometry was wrong you could actually feel it turns. He let me drive his fast one a couple of times, He used a triangle plate with the front tierod, the left tie rod hooked to the right side of the triangle, and visa-versa, that put the right akerman back in, With the backwards akerman, and bigger tires than on a lot of T buckets, when you hit a bump the tire with the most traction decides which way you go, and I have had one car I built cross the white line on a bumpy turn with traffic coming towards me.
