Whether it’s your road car or track car the wheels need to be setup accordingly.
Road cars it’s important to have the wheel aligned correctly to keep the car going in the straight line and keep the tyre wear even,
Drift Cars need lots of over-steer to enable you to keep control as you slide around the circuit.
Track Racing need the contact patch of the tyres connected to the road as much as possible to give you traction in and out of corners to enable you to get the power down on the track.
- Castor (is the angular displacement of the steering axis from the vertical axis of a steered wheel in a car, motorcycle, bicycle or other vehicle, measured in the longitudinal direction. It is the angle between the pivot line (in a car an imaginary line that runs through the centre of the upper ball joint to the centre of the lower ball joint) and vertical. In automobile racing, the caster angle may be adjusted to optimise handling characteristics for a particular venue.)
- Camber (is the angle made by the wheels of a vehicle; specifically, it is the angle between the vertical axis of the wheels used for steering and the vertical axis of the vehicle when viewed from the front or rear. It is used in the design of steering and suspension. If the top of the wheel is farther out than the bottom (that is, away from the axle), it is called positive camber; if the bottom of the wheel is farther out than the top, it is called negative camber)
- Toe (also known as tracking, is the symmetric angle that each wheel makes with the longitudinal axis of the vehicle, as a function of static geometry, and kinematic and compliant effects. This can be contrasted with steer, which is the antisymmetric angle, i.e. both wheels point to the left or right, in parallel (roughly). Negative toe, or toe out, is the front of the wheel pointing away from the centreline of the vehicle. Positive toe, or toe in, is the front of the wheel pointing towards the centreline of the vehicle. Toe can be measured in linear units, at the front of the tire, or as an angular deflection).
