Much as possible before it hits the mechanical limit.

Never heard of that. I just make sure I do not drive my steering into the mechanical limits. You should tune your steering for the track. I make sure I can make all of the turns on the track as fast as possible.

On higher speeds it is possible when going over a certain angle the frontwheels will loose grip and the car will loose steer. On lower speeds that effect is gone. That is why you want to set the most possible steering angle and you have to find the sweet point of stering in every corner with the setup and your control.
