Looking for some help.. I have raced pan cars for about 5 years now on and off and I am pretty good at setting cars up and can usually run pretty good.. but there is one thing I have never really understood and thats Caster.. not sure what it does and how to set it properly.. I have always set my car up one way.. left side all the way foward and the right side all the way back and on my gen 3 that always worked great but I have taken the last year or so off from racing and now I am running a cefx car and it just doesnt seam like those caster settings are right.. if someone could take a few minutes and explain what caster does and what adjustments do what.. ie. moving the arm foward or bakwards does what... any help would be greatly appreciated..

thanks
Doughboy

Of the three biggest adjustments on the front,
Toe, camber, and caster, caster is the least important.
And while toe and camber can be compared to a real race car,
caster really does not lend itself to that comparison at all.
Lean both of your pins back a little, and you'll be good to go.
Work on the toe and camber. Those two, if off, will have a much
more dramatic effect on your handling, than a degree of caster...
