Caster Setup Guide

Caster Setup Guide

This is the setup guide for managing your caster setting. You can also use the free setup develop guide wich can be found here.

Caster is the fore or aft slope of the steering axis. Positive caster is when the bottom of the steering axis line is in front of the tire’s contact patch. Zero caster is when the steering axis is at 0 degrees.
High static camber minimizes the contact with the tarmac under braking and on the inside tyre when cornering. This is where changing the caster can help.
Decrease 1 or 2 steps negative camber on the front and replace this with 2 degrees of caster.
What change do you feel?

LESS FRONT GRIP

  • Reset to the old camber settings and only set 1 degree of caster.

MORE FRONT GRIP

  • It looks like we are getting more grip by removing camber, continue on adding more caster until you are completely satisfied. Use small steps.

ONLY GETTING WORSE

  • Decrease caster instead of increasing

NO CHANGE

  • Try some bigger adjustments or reset to the old situation
