The rack gives you a more adjustable akerman setting.
Moving the ball stud forward will be more progressive. As you get deeper into the turn the fronts traction will be higher and more reponsive. You will have more onpower (accelerating) steering.

Moving it back will make the car more aggresive. You will get more entry steering. Good for pipe on pipe 180s.

Try putting 2 mm height in you rear shocks. Leave your front alone. It will keep the power towards the nose and retard chassis squat. It is a quick adjustment that can tell you if you have probs somewhere else.

Antisquat? Front toe? Rear toe?

Les is right about tires. They are 80% of it.

I would try both steering system at your track and go with the one that best suits your style of driving. On the rack Losi states that adding washers under the ballstuds results in less reverse ackermann and more hook.

Personally, I believe that the reverse Ackerman takes away steering, in & out.
