Anti-dive has greatest effect in deceleration, anti-squat when accelerating.
The effect that I am after is to make the car a little less reactive or edgy decelerating into a corner. As I get back on the throttle I want all the steering to come back.
My current setup thinking:
Anti-dive = Will cause the front end to wash out as it will take 1-2deg of caster out of the car when I am only running the 3deg blocks. To counter act this affect I would need to install the 6deg blocks which would put me back to where I started or potentially having more reactive caster.
Anti-Squat = Decrease steering response off power entering a corner as less weight is transfered forward. On-power steering is increased when the throttle is applied due to less weight transfering to the rear.
The only problem that I have with my thinking is nobody runs anti-squat on carpet while anti-dive seems normal.
