I'm going to a wider beam (6") on my 5 car. Does anybody have any insight as to caster ? What angle (degrees) am I going to need? I will be running the CharLynn power steering setup, and I've talked to a few guys that mentioned caster to make the power steering work right. Something about oversteer. Apparently, the CharLynn works good in the dirt- but if you hit the pavement the car gets allover the place. Supposedly by adding the caster into the beam, it takes care of the wandering problem.

Hoping somebody has some info. regarding this.

Thanks
