Default Ackermen question On the Losi 8T 2.0

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...g-Ackerman-Set

Would choosing the short Ackerman Increase steering?

I have read in the JQ " The Guide" That A Short ackerman "plate" will increase steering

Is This true?
Thanks.... for the help
Looking to increase the steering alittle on my truggy without changing much, and its a small and quick change if i dont like it.
and if i do change it.. what would be the Adverse effects? Lose rear traction? things like that?

a quote from the losi manual
"A long Ackerman plate will have smooth off-power steering and is more forgiving. The long Ackerman plate will have more steering on-power. A short Ackerman plate responds quicker and has more steering in the middle of the turn. A short Ackerman plate is better suited for tight technical tracks." -losi manual page 36.

give the manual a good read mate. its got a lot of info on setups. you can download it directly through their website.
