the akerman angle ??

It looks like the Akerman angle is now backwards. when yoy turn It looks like you will get bad toe in ...a line drawn thru the ball joint center lines... tie rod pivot is suposed to go thru the center of the rear end...It looks like if you draw the line it will be on the outside of the rear tires. I don't know if you can bend the steering arm and shorten the tie rod ends to make it work right.. My brother used to racwe go-carts and he had some that would slow down and scrub the tires in a turn because the angles were wrong.
