    Hi all,
    I am about to weld the radius rod brackets onto
    the axle for my slingshot dragster. What caster angle
    should the axle be set at?
    Thanks for the help..........

    We always used 10 degrees.

    On my K-88 it's so much 14 or 15 degrees that in a tight turn the front wheels flop over.

    If you are useing late style front tires ie goodyears,hooseirs,M/T then 9-12* ,if you are using a tire with a round (motorcycle)style crown ie avons, chin-senn etc. then more caster is needed , no more than 20*
